Knowing full well that I should be writing, I have been neglecting my blog. My one reader (my mother) has been missing it, so I thought I'd sign on. Here are some current events in mental health: The Milton Erickson Foundation puts on the Evolution of Psychotherapy conference every few years. It is largest conference of mental health professionals in the world. I for one have not had the opportunity to attend; however, I hear it is quite the place to be. The speakers are usually well-known psychotherapists, counselors, educators, psychiatrists, and physicians from all over the world. Next year, it will be held in Anaheim on December 11th through the 15th. The prices at this point for registration are very low, and considering the people who will be there (Aaron Beck, Martin Seligman, and John Gottman to name a few), the price is phenomenal. Students can volunteer and get a huge discount, as well. I hope to be able to attend next year! Jamison Link: http://www.evolutionofpsychotherapy.com/
