By Rich Simon There was a time not so long ago that only those who had the time and money to attend workshops around the country had the opportunity for a close-up view of psychotherapy’s leading figures. I remember as a grad student my only access to people whose work I revered like Sal Minuchin, Virginia Satir, and Carl Whitaker — as much as I would have liked to swing by their offices to ask my endless list of clinical questions–was through their writing.
Today technology has made it possible to connect with the field’s leaders and innovators on a much more immediate and personal level. Having had the opportunity to interview well over a hundred of psychotherapy’s most celebrated practitioners through our various Networker webcast series, I’ve discovered how much more you can learn from someone about the craft of the kind of therapy they do—the tone of their voice, the expression on their face, the subtleties of their body language– in an actual conversation than from the printed page or a more formal presentation.
For State of the Art 2013, our virtual conference taking place from November 4-8 (and available on-demand for the next 5 months), we’ve gone through all the webcasts, Symposium events and Networker articles we’ve produced in the past year to give you what we consider the most important developments in the day-to-day craft of psychotherapy. Here’s a convenient, affordable and compelling opportunity to learn from a Who’s Who of psychotherapy—people like Dan Siegel, Tara Brach, Susan Johnson, Jack Kornfield, Jerome Kagan, Diana Fosha, Pat Ogden as well as 30 presenters more—as they respond to questions about the concrete challenges all of us face in our practices every day. You get to hear how they conduct a first interview or deal with an especially tumultuous couple or comfort a deeply traumatized client. Just click here or watch the clip below to get an overview of how State of the Art 2013 will unfold.
Whatever your specialty area–couples or family therapy, integrative mental health, applying brain science in therapy, or treating anxiety, depression or trauma—you’ll find practical and inspiring guidance for your work in our 40-event program. Beyond that, you’ll also be able to join the conversation with other colleagues via the interactive features available throughout the event.
It’s what the eternal student in all of us wants—the chance to enhance our craft, extend our perspective and connect with a wider community of practice in a way that feels personal, spontaneous, and filled with possibility.
