Upcoming Events

Discussion Groups Are Back!

Monday, January 15, 2018
6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The holidays are over and the New Years resolutions have been made. Maybe one of those resolutions was to spend more time with colleagues discussing the complex and nuanced challenges of personality disorders. Wait, it wasn't? Well, join us anyway this Monday as we'll be discussing the development of schizoid personality disorder as well as some thoughts we had after attending the Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference. The group is always free, worth 1.5 CEU credits, and held right here at our office in Chico. We look forward to see you all soon!
