Why Attend the Evolution of Psychotherapy?

A ‘persistent and consistent offering of the very best of the field.’

The Evolution of Psychotherapy meeting is a golden opportunity for mental health professionals. 

Professor and therapist Gary Quan: "Evolution brings together the world’s best career psychotherapists, providing a unique opportunity to meet, learn from, and collaborate with the very best clinicians in our field. Evolution’s 2023 faculty lineup is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity we may not have again, and I am excited about the possibilities around this year’s event – for myself, my colleagues, and the students who are entering the field of psychotherapy."

  • Therapy, by its very nature, is an unusual conversation Its methods are unusual. But the unusual serves a purpose, namely, evocative impact."

  • My first experience with the Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference has exceeded my expectations. What a gift to have the opportunity to hear some of the greatest minds in psychotherapy speak and demonstrate their craft. I learned about Chloe Madanes in school but never thought I'd have the chance to meet her! Or to run into Helen LaKelly Hunt in the basement of my hotel! With topics ranging from Clinical Supervision and Infidelity in Couples, to DSM Diagnostics and AI in Psychotherapy, there is truly something for everyone. I'll be back!"
