As previously announced, NASPR will sponsor several training-, consultation-, and/or mentoring-themed workshops during fall 2015. The idea was for these meetings to be one day, low cost, limited planning events with financial support provided by the organization.
We are happy to announce that two of these meetings are in the works:
(1) Lake George, Holiday Inn (tentative date: October 24, 2015; local hosts: James Boswell and Michael Constantino) - This meeting, which remains in development, will feature a research methodology workshop and student research/mentoring consultations. Details on the final program and registration guidelines to follow.
(2) New York City, New School for Social Research (date: November 7, 2015; local hosts: Christopher Muran, Jeremy Safran, and Catherine Eubanks-Carter) - this meeting, which is titled, "Alliance-Focused Training: Research and Practice," will include plenary sessions featuring Jacques Barber, Jeff Binder, Louis Castonguay, Doris Chang, Micki Friedlander, Marvin Goldfried, Robert Hatcher, Laurie Heatherington, and Clara Hill. It will also include workshops focused on the challenges related to alliance-focused training and research on such training.
Much more detail on these events will follow in subsequent newsletters and announcements. For now, mark your calendars, and trust that registration costs will be kept very low!
