Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference - My Schedule


I am at the Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference in Anaheim, CA, just up the street from Disney Land (the happiest place on Earth, or something like that).

There is so much to do and learn - and some of it overlaps. Some of the biggest names in psychotherapy over the last 30 years are speaking here, including Otto Kernberg, Albert Bandura, Gerald Edelman (1972 Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine), Donald Meichenbaum, Judith Beck (daughter of Aaron Beck), Herriet Lerner, Ernest Rossi, Cloe Mandanes, Irvin Yalom, and Bessel van der Kolk, as well as some younger stars, such as Mary, Pipher, Francine Shapiro, Daniel Siegel, Stephen Gilligan, Peter Levine, and Steven Hayes.
