Moderated & Guided by Lynne Spevack LCSW



While we anticipate that many clinicians will want to make the most of the day by attending all of the day’s workshops, each workshop is designed to stand alone.


Throughout much of the day, a separate conference room will be available for attendees who decide not to attend a particular workshop and would prefer to use the time to network or socialize with colleagues.
