Today, more than ever, we’re all aware of the occupational hazards of our trade. Wherever we practice, we know the daily pressure to see more clients in less time, with less opportunity to talk about our cases, develop our skills, and give each other the kind of support our demanding craft requires. That’s why we want to extend an invitation to the 36th annual Networker Symposium, “The Therapist’s Craft: Healing Connection in a Digital World,” coming this March 21-24 in Washington, D.C.
But why make a pilgrimage to the Symposium in spite of all the good reasons to save money and stay away?
To be sure, there’s no conference that offers a greater range of workshops (over 175 in all) taught by more of the most respected figures in our field (over 100 of the Best of the Best), but there’s something beyond that.
In our digital age, there’s still the age-old irreducible human need for direct eyeball-to-eyeball, voice-to-voice, hand-to-hand contact. The Symposium is our chance to come out of the isolation of all-too-private practices and experience ourselves as part of a larger profession. There’s a special spark and opening to inspiration that comes with being in the actual, physical presence of keynoters, presenters, and, of course, 3500 fellow therapists.
So please listen to this video in which Rich Simon—Editor of the Psychotherapy Networker—describes this unique opportunity to learn about the latest advances in our field and experience the renewal that comes from being part of a true Community of Practice.
Welcome to the 2013 Networker Symposium!
