Thanks to Chico CAMFT for having us.

We want to take this opportunity to thank Tom, Nori, Pam and everyone from Chico Chapter of California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists for having us speak at their meeting this past Friday. We were thrilled to be able to present our information about the diagnosis, development and treatment of personality disorders and just blown away by the turn-out. We were also especially appreciative of the amazing questions and comments that the attendees presented. What an amazing, supportive, and brilliant group of colleagues. Of course, we ran a little short on time and would like to extend an invite for people to attend our free Monday night discussion group if you have any more questions or thoughts. Thanks! Adam, Steve, Mary and everyone at Nysa.
