Bill DohertyEsther PerelWe’re halfway through State of the Art 2013! How’s your conference experience going so far? Have you had a chance to fill out your community profile, connect with other attendees, or ask questions to our presenters? If not, we hope you’re enjoying the sessions or looking forward to watching them on demand over the next five months!

Yesterday, you had the opportunity to watch the premiere event “Commitment and its Challenges in 21st Century Couples” and pose questions to the presenters. Though Esther Perel and Bill Doherty seem like very different couples therapists at first blush, they found a lot of common ground when addressing the present day tensions couples face between adventure and stability, fidelity and eroticism, and individual fulfillment and responsibility. We can’t wait to see how Esther and Bill respond to your questions!

You can tune in today for another brand new session with Mary Jo Barrett and Dick Schwartz on “Treating Trauma: A 30 Year Perspective.” They’ll be delving into the latest advances in trauma treatment and what the future holds for trauma specialists. They’ll also be taking questions for their follow up session next week!

Today’s agenda also includes some Symposium classics: “Coming to Our Senses” with mindfulness-based stress reduction developer Jon Kabat-Zinn, and “Cyber Intimacy and Cyber Solitude” with MIT psychologist Sherry Turkle. All sessions are available at 1 pm Eastern!

Also, take a look at the latest conversations in the community forums if you have a chance.

Why else do any of us do it? For many of us, being able to provide support and guidance to people who are moving through the darkest periods in their lives is what keeps us returning to our offices to sit with even the most difficult clients.
