We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers for the conference:

Donna Harris, MA, MSW, LCSW and Fabiola Desmont, LMSW

On Saturday, participants will choose a full day experiential process training. The leader will lead the group as if it was a psychotherapy group and will take breaks from the group process to discuss with the participants the skills they are using and how they might use them in a psychotherapy group.

Conference Goals:
