The Red River Institute's Annual

Spring Conference provides a unique opportunity for mental health providers of different disciplines to network with

one another, share ideas, and get current on recent developments



in the field.  Partipants say they enjoy the Spring Conference not only for the Continuing Education opportunities, but also

for the gourmet fare provided as part of the "dine-and-learn" format! This year's theme, Healing Words--Practicing the

Art of Healing Conversation, focuses on the art and science of utilizing human language as a healing tool, fundamenal to all contemporary healing disciplines.  Participants will enjoy a provacative series of presentations and forums designed to explore the politics, ethics, and practice of utilizing language in the healing of mind, spirit, and relationship.
