The feedback has been very positive with the majority of the attendees stating it was the "BEST" conference they have attended.

PLENARY Speakers:

  • Rita Brock - Plenary - Spiritual Integration - Forthcoming
  • Gary Gunderson - Plenary - Expanded Models of Care - Forthcoming

Theory-focused workshops addressed the historic focus of AAPC on psychotherapeutic theory:

Spiritual integration workshops further developed the unique vantage point of pastoral counselors on situations that call for care, attending to the religious and spiritual dimensions of human experience and therapeutic practice.

Expanded models of practice workshops served to propel the practice of spiritually-integrated practitioners beyond the counseling room and into a variety of future-oriented opportunities that further the mission of AAPC and its members in important new venues.
