2017 IPA Annual Convention


Trauma: Helping Our Clients, Our Communities,
and Ourselves

The Annual Convention November 2-4, 2017 will be held at the Marriott Schaumburg Hotel in Schaumburg, IL

Thursday’s all-day pre-convention workshop will presented by Steven Gold, Ph.D.  “Conceptualizing and Treating Complex Trauma and Dissociation in Context.” He works at the Trauma Resolution and Integration Program at Nova Southeastern University. This symposium will present Contextual Trauma Treatment, a conceptually grounded and empirically informed approach to helping severely traumatized and dissociative clients not only resolve the debilitating consequences of catastrophic experiences but also establish an appreciably enhanced, productive and gratifying quality of life. Videotaped session excerpts will illustrate this approach. Lunch and coffee breaks will be provided.

On Friday, November 3rd the IPA All Association meeting will be held, we encourage all members to attend. Exhibits will be open all day, and Student Poster Presentations will be on display.

The IPA Annual Awards Luncheon will take place on Friday and there will food breaks throughout the day. We hope you will attend the Presidents reception Friday evening. This is a great networking opportunity and good time to catch up with old colleagues and make new ones. The Therapy Players will be preforming to provide comic relief for everyone to unwind after a long day of learning.

Additional workshops will be held on Saturday, November 4th.
