2020 Convention "Navigating the Mind" will be Virtural

In these unprecedented times, our industry has an obligation to be more innovative than ever before. When COVID-19 stay-at-home orders threatened to cancel the Trauma Workshop scheduled in Savannah, GA for March 27th and 28th, an option to migrate the training to an online platform came available thanks to quick thinking and an innovative use of technology.  As a result, approximately 100 therapists were able to join the two-day training on their home devices, watch the live stream of the Trauma Workshop, and receive the certification for the course. 
Not only did this innovative approach to training save the attendees money, but it also created limited interruptions, if any at all, developing an essential learning environment.  Additionally, this method allowed attendees to network and share resources and information among themselves on the chat feature of the live stream.

If you have a hotel room, please cancel.  Marriott is refunding at no charge.   
WE WILL EMAIL ALL THOSE REGISTER with options shortly.  Thank you for your patience.
