It’s finally here, the Symposium, the weekend we’ve all been waiting for….maybe some of you knew what to expect when you got here but as much as I’ve been warned, I wasn’t entirely prepared!
I have spent the last few months at Psychotherapy Networker, assisting with the editorial process of the magazine and, of course, hearing about the famous Symposium. I’ve heard tales of Rich Simon’s comedic presentations onstage, of thousands of old and new friends meeting in one place to share information and have a good time, of fascinating exhibits, exciting workshops, and basically about a “Mardi Gras” of a weekend, as Rich likes to describe it. What a way to earn a few CE credits!
What I wasn’t counting on is learning something before the workshops had even begun. Just sitting by the coffee and danish station, I met a few wonderfully friendly women who engaged in a very interesting conversation about their individual practices, education, and past Symposium experiences.
Welcome to Symposium 2010 everybody-I just can’t wait to see how everything will unfold! If you’re a first-timer like me or if you’ve been a Symposium attendee for as long as you can remember, comment on how the weekend is going so far.
