SEPI invites you to

Drawing on multiple theories and methods to enhance psychotherapy practice and research

We are delighted to inform you that the next SEPI conference will take place in New York City on May 31-June 2, 2018. The location will be the Marriott Downtown Hotel in Battery Park, which is in an excellent venue with many points of interest nearby and just a short subway ride to others in Manhattan.
The general conference theme will be “Drawing on multiple theories and methods to enhance psychotherapy practice and research.” Consider preparing papers, panels and workshops on any of the following topics:
(a) Integrating clinical interventions from different theoretical models
(b) Case studies of psychotherapy, with qualitative and/or quantitative data
(c) Integrating across different theories of psychotherapy in research, practice and training
(d) Qualitative and/or quantitative studies of psychotherapy process and outcome
(e) Focusing on clinical complexity in assessment, case formulation and treatment planning
(f) Integration in the course of therapy and in considering outcome evaluation
(g) Philosophical issues in psychotherapy integration.
Although papers can be on any topic related to psychotherapy integration, there will be a special emphasis on systematic case studies of psychotherapy, especially those combining qualitative and quantitative data and methods. These can include emphasis on process and/or outcome. This focus relates to one aspect of the renewed SEPI theme of integrating research and practice.
We would like to see more diversity in ethnic and racial background in SEPI membership as well as at the conference. In addition, we welcome those from a variety of theoretical orientations (e.g., more CBT adherents) and professional backgrounds (e.g., social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, child/family therapists, etc.) and more members/participants from abroad. For this to happen, we hope that SEPI members will invite their friends and colleagues who come from these and other backgrounds and locations to join SEPI and attend the New York City SEPI Conference.
We are looking forward to an exciting and stimulating event!
