We are excited to offer the opportunity to explore the theme of silence as it relates to the process of psychotherapy and to highlight what is, perhaps, a core tenet of the American Academy of Psychotherapists-the belief that daring to speak authentically and to work the edges of the unspoken is essential to the development of the person of the psychotherapist.
In our 2018 Institute and Conference, we invite you to delve into an experience of silence and explore the edges of the unspoken. Our plenary speakers will address the cultural phenomenon of avoidance and discomfort with racial conversations (Howard Stevenson, PhD); the myriad contributors to personal silencing, including culture, trauma, and stigma (Dana Jack, EdD); and the journey of healing and recovery of one's unique voice (Kathy Steele, CNS). We are excited to offer a diverse schedule of workshops that explore the theme of silence: Chosen or imposed? Restorative or constructive? Nurturing or self-denying?
In the heart of bustling Atlanta, there is a Japanese oasis perfect for exploring the theme of silence as it relates to the process of psychotherapy. Please join us for this event at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead, which offers all the amenities of a metropolitan hotel plus a soothing waterfall and Zen garden.
