    VIRTUAL Colleague Collaboration + Eat your Lunch

    presented by SMHCA


    Join the Colleague Collaboration for a great VIRTUAL event!

    Many of us, whether in agencies or private practice, can feel like we are sometimes “going it alone” and wish we could receive advice from our colleagues, especially on our most difficult cases. This is your opportunity to bring those tough cases and clients to your peers to seek feedback in a safe and confidential environment where all psychotherapists – clinical mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, and psychologists – can share their struggles and receive advice on their problem cases.  No cases that need assistance?  Bring your experience and expertise to share with your colleagues.  Collaboration is a team effort that enlightens us all!

    Please look for, and save, the Zoom Meeting ID and Password sent in the registration confirmation. You will need that information to join the Zoom Meeting.  We invite you to join 5 minutes before the start of the event.

    Hope to see you there!
