I literally grew up with the Networker, accompanying me through every stage of my career. More than a magazine, it is a community that provides belonging, information, and keeps me on my toes.
The Symposium is how the field finds community and connection. It's a fabulous opportunity to develop ourselves as people and professionals.
There's nothing like the Symposium! It's special because it's where therapists can feel a sense of belonging, stimulation, and excitement. We're stronger together.
The Symposium offers so many useful ideas for your practice. It's the premier psychotherapy conference in the country.
The Networker is just a large, intellectual and clinical playground. My friends and I continue to talk about it throughout the year. I highly recommend people come. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
For years the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium has been a high energy, cutting edge gathering that is just plain fun. And now....it's back!
