Deadline nears for psychology symposium

June 4, 2014

Early registration, with its conference fee discounts, ends Monday, October 29, for “Into the Consulting Room: Five Approaches to Counseling and Christianity.”

Jointly sponsored by the Bryan Institute for Critical Thought and Practice and Richmont Graduate University, the symposium is designed for psychologists, counselors, social workers and those in related fields to have the opportunity to hear and observe various models of integrating counseling and Christian faith. The symposium will be held Friday and Saturday, November 2-3 at the Chattanooga Convention Center. In addition to snapshots of these five models, counselors will offer a clinical demonstration of their method.

Last-minute registrations, at the non-discounted price, will be available at the conference registration table.
