Christian Counseling Conference in Nashville

16 Sep

opryland hotelThe American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) world conference is this week in Nashville. It is held at the Opryland Hotel and Conference Center. I just arrived last night and am getting ready to co-lead a pre-conference workshop today with Jim Sells. The session is titled “Christian Family Therapy.” We are presenting on an integrative approach to family therapy, drawing on our recent book Family Therapies.

On Friday I’ll be co-presenting a workshop on “Working with Mixed Sexual Orientation Couples.” I’ll be presenting with Jill Kays, a doctoral student in clinical psychology at Regent, and we will be discussing some of the characteristics of mixed orientation relationships, as well as present a framework for counseling that address some of the unique considerations that come up when working with these couples.

    I’ve been reading through “Family Therapies” piecemeal. There is a lot of good information that I have not been exposed to before.

    Good luck in Nashville! I wish I could be there to see your presentation!

    Thanks, James. We presented the workshop on mixed orientation couples this morning. It was well attended and people genuinely seemed to appreciate the information and balance between research and practical suggestions. I’ll try to post the PowerPoint either here or at the SIT Framework site.

    Dr. Yarhouse,

    I attended the workshop this morning and it was great! I’m a first-semester Ph.D. Student in Marriage and Family Therapy at Virginia Tech…trying to come up with a topic of interest for my research. I hope you don’t mind I looked you up on Regent’s website and will probably shoot you an email sometime soon.

    Thanks for visiting, Hilah. I hope you’ll come back. I’m glad you enjoyed the workshop. I’d be interested to hear what you are considering for your dissertation topic.
