Ivory Garden is proud to announce that we will be hosting the annual “Trauma & Dissociation Conference” being held October 3rd through the 5th, 2014 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). Please go to the “Conference Schedule” tab to see the schedule. The actual conference begins at 8:00 am on Friday.

The conference will focus on clinicians, child abuse survivors, and loved ones working together in order to share knowledge that will empower, enlighten, and benefit each uniquely. Our goal is that trauma survivors will leave the conference with the tools and knowledge that can be used in everyday life; that supporters acquire a better understanding of trauma and dissociation and its effects on survivors; that clinicians gain skills that will be useful when treating dissociative clients.

The conference will be held in Seattle, WA at the DoubleTree by Hilton near Sea-Tac Airport. Please go to the “Hotel and Lodging” tab for more information on rooms and accommodations.

If you would like to register, please go to the form and do so as soon as possible. At this time registration is set up by days. Registration rates will change August 15, 2014.

All of the professional workshops have been approved for credit units by the Washington Chapter, National Association of Social Workers (NASW) for Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists and Licensed Mental Health Counselors. (provider #1975-362). You will find information concerning CEU’s on the schedules.
