Here at Psychotherapy Networker, we have always aimed to do more with our annual Symposium than stage another stodgy professional conference. Beyond simply offering a chance to collect CE credit, we want to provide an opportunity for the field to come together as a community, or—as our founding editor Rich Simon called it—a “tribe.”
Naturally, the pandemic has made this difficult. While we will not be meeting in person, we have still scheduled plenty of time to connect online with fellow therapists in break-out rooms, networking sessions, and mindful movement breathers. We have also put together a smorgasbord of digital offerings to help you engage more fully with the Symposium and each other, such as coloring pages and Zoom backgrounds to use during the conference. We look forward to seeing what you do with them, and hope that you share photos on social media—either on our Facebook event or elsewhere using the hashtag #PNS2021!
Coloring Book Pages
Our friends at PESI Publishing have kindly provided free coloring pages for Symposium attendees this year. Bust out your crayons and get to drawing to relax during downtime or stay focused during Zoom workshops! Invite your little ones to join you and introduce them to coloring as an easy and engaging mindfulness activity. Share your masterpieces with us on social media, and we may post them to our feeds as well!
While the pandemic has unfortunately put the kibosh on our Symposium dance party this year, there will still be plenty of opportunities to boogie down and get moving with your fellow therapists with yoga, meditation, and dance breaks throughout the conference! We've even started curating a Spotify playlist to get you ready and loosened up. Have suggestions for songs? Let us know on social media, and we'll add them!
