The first Evolution of Psychotherapy conference in 1985 was a celebration of the 100th anniversary of psychotherapy. The conference itself has evolved, becoming more dynamic, diverse, and clinical—organized around practice-oriented workshops and offering interactive events. Now, in its 37th year, we endeavor not only to review the foundational principles laid by luminaries of the 20th century, but provide a forum for future leaders to build upon those principles and inspire future practices.
In 2022, we’re dedicated to embracing the future of the field, while honoring the past work that has brought us here. We are pleased to introduce a refreshed format for this year's event, crafted by psychotherapy experts and inspired by our field’s future leaders. We’re providing both a forum to build upon the foundations the masters helped create and a stage for new voices to share their unique perspectives and ideas. Attendees will enjoy an integrated forum in the city of Orlando, where research trailblazers, breakout thinkers, and on-the-ground professionals convene to connect, engage, support, and reinvigorate their passion for the field of psychotherapy.
The Conferences' educational advisor is the Milton H. Erickson Foundation, a federal nonprofit corporation formed to promote and advance the contributions to the health sciences by the late Milton H. Erickson, MD. The Conference is produced by HMP Global's Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Learning Network, the leading behavioral healthcare conference organizer.
Thank you for your continued support!
