The Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference featured an extraordinary faculty of practitioners and researchers who, collectively, define the field. The art and science of psychotherapy was explored from nearly every conceivable angle. Organized by The Milton H. Erickson Foundation and steered by its Director, Jeffrey K. Zeig, Ph.D., the tradition of holding this special meeting every 4-5 years continues and just gets stronger each time.
Thanks to Jeffrey K. Zeig, Ph.D. and the dedicated staff at the Milton H. Erickson Foundation, nearly every well known therapist, guru, and psychotherapy cult-leader would gather for the first mega-conference ever held, the field’s Woodstock: The Evolution of Psychotherapy.
All in all the conference was a wonderful collection of wisdom, gathered from years of experience and evidence of how much our field has evolved. It was also exciting to think about how much more we will know by the next Evolution conference in 2010, when so many additional findings from neuroscience will be integrated into our work.
