The San Diego Psychological Association 2017 Fall Conference has been scheduled! 
Innovations in Complex Trauma Treatments: What’s Outside the Box? 
Saturday, October 28, 2017
Crowne Plaza Hotel
2270 Hotel Circle North
San Diego, CA 92108
The conference will be a wonderful forum for San Diego mental health professionals since addressing the needs of clients with trauma is a daily challenge for almost all therapists and programs.  Encouragingly, there are now so many creative new ways to approach trauma recovery. We plan to feature many of these.
Keynote speaker, Bonnie Goldstein, Ph.D., Southern California Director of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute Training Program will bring her expertise in individual and group work with teens and young adults using keen somatic attunement.  Constance Dalenberg, Ph.D. founder of the Journal of Traumatology and a respected researcher, expert witness, and therapist will discuss her fascinating clinical research on transference and counter transference crises in therapy with clients who have been traumatized – what mistakes do therapists commonly make and how can these inevitable dilemmas be skillfully handled. 
These two leaders in the field will be joined by an array of interesting workshop speakers addressing topics from use of virtual reality in military trauma to the impact of trauma on couples to spirituality applied with refugees to a recent therapy research trial at UCSD on complicated grief after violent death. It’s an amazing program! 

Registration will start in July!
