About the Event

2022 WAMFT Conference: "3rd Order Change: From Competency to Attunement"

If you are a medical professional, please register here.

We are excited to push the boundaries around what therapy is and how to apply theoretical concepts to meet the needs of diverse individuals. Gone are the days where simplistic application of models suited how MFTs operated with clients. The Pandemic, Racism, Violence, Political Unrest and Oppression are real issues that our clients contend with. Come find out how leaders in our field are moving therapy forward to meet the needs of the current environment. We've even worked to provide a track this year which can be attended by medical professionals* in addition to those of us in the MFT/Mental Health community to foster partnerships.

This year the pre-conference event will take on a new form! We will showcase a talented panel of therapists who will discuss their clinical perspectives and theories of choice within the context of promoting third order change. Join us in witnessing the wisdom from some of the new movers and shakers of our field. Participants will learn how certain theories are explained and applied to a live simulated therapeutic encounter. The preconference event will be a deep dive into how to do systemic therapy with third order change in mind.

A total of 11.5 CEs will be available this year, 5 for the pre-conference event on Friday and up to 6.5 for the main conference on Saturday. There will be tracks for ethics and MFTs in Schools to complement the general conference theme.

We look forward to seeing you there!
