What is a Virtual Conference?

It's a full conference experience without leaving home! Designed to fit your calendar perfectly, you can watch events as scheduled or on-demand anytime, anywhere. New events are scheduled to air each day of the conference, and you can dialogue with presenters and peers throughout the entire event. There are over 50 events conveniently organized into 5 interest areas. Earn up to 20 CEs if you need them.

What if I can't make a scheduled session?

All sessions will be available to watch on-demand, anytime once they have aired. Then, you can join the online discussion whenever you've viewed the session, even if you watch it later at your convenience. Please note that on-demand access to the conference archives will end January 31st, 2012.

How do I get my CE credits?

If you have purchased the "with CEs" option, you can earn up to 20 CEs. You can choose from over 50 CE Events.

After each session you can take the quiz for the session online. You can take it as many times as necessary until you pass. Once you have passed the quizzes you have taken, you must fill out a State of the Art event evaluation online. ALL questions must be answered. Once that's been completed and submitted, you will receive your CE Certificate in PDF form through email within 7 business days. Quizzes are required by certifying agencies for online learning events.

What is the conference about?

It's the 'Best of the Best' of Networker, bringing together the year's most important presentations from the field's leading psychotherapy innovators, including intensive explorations of couples therapy, trauma, and brain science. It gives you new tools to address the real clinical challenges--and the emerging possibilities--facing today's time-pressed practitioners. You'll learn from a conference faculty that's a Who's Who of Psychotherapy--with presenters like Dan Siegel, Susan Johnson, Marsha Linehan, John Gottman, Bill Doherty, and many more.

How much does the conference cost?

Will I be notified when the conference opens?

You will receive an email on October 27th with the website address (URL) for the conference. An overview of conference events will also be included.

These notices, and all announcements about the conference, will come from this email address: feedback@psychotherapynetworker.org. In order to prevent these notices from going into your spam mailbox, we suggest placing this email address in your address book.

How long will I be online for the conference?

The amount of time you spend at the conference will vary based on how many presentations and/or live workshops you choose to attend and also how much time you spend afterward in the discussion groups.

You can break up your time in the conference any way you like. We suggest that attendees look at the conference schedule and block out time on your personal calendar to listen to the welcomes, the keynote session, and the panels that you wish to hear.

How long will I have access to the conference website and materials?

All participants will have full access to the State of the Art 2011 website until January 31st, 2012. This includes On-Demand video sessions of each session.

Do firewalls pose any problems for participation?

Our online conference platform can be accessed through any firewall because it is html-based and does not require any proprietary downloads. All presentations are delivered using Macromedia's Flash technology, which is also accessible through firewalls. If you're still concerned about firewall access click here to perform a system test.

What are the technical requirements to participate?

Do I have to sit at my computer the whole time?

No! You can watch all the sessions on demand at your convenience.

If it's online, how will I network and meet other professionals?

There are several different ways to dialogue with presenters and peers throughout the entire conference. The Connect Live events allow you to question the presenters in real time; discussion boards provide a forum to comment on presentations and interact with your colleagues and the presenters; the Virtual Conference Directory invites you to connect directly with like-minded peers--it's searchable by location, clinical specialty, and more.

Will I be able to ask questions and talk directly to the presenters?

Yes. Most presenters will be active in the post-session discussions and there are 6 Connect Live events where you can talk on the phone with Sue Johnson, Terry Real, Ron Siegel, Michael Yapko, Jerome Kagan, Dan Siegel, Bill Doherty, Etienne Wenger, and Harriet Lerner.
