Summer Symposium


There is a revolution going on in the mental health field that is being fueled--as all worthy revolutions are--from the "grass roots."  The consumers of mental health services are not only demanding affordable access to our services, but a different quality of service provision that preserves their dignity as human beings.

How can we as healers accurately discern this changing landscape and create a context for service delivery that is relevant to the    

consumers of our services?  This year's Summer Symposium brings medical and nonmedical

professionals together that are on the cutting edge of the health industry to share the nature of their practices and to discuss how we as mental health professionals can work to keep our approach to service provision attuned to the evolving needs of our clients.  



The 2018 RRI Summer Symposium will provide LMFTs, LPCs, and all Provisional Licensees with six (6) required CEHs in diagnosis.  The program will provide participants with a rare multi-faceted glimpse of discoveries that are shaping the evolution of the mental health field and how those factors are impacting our traditional views of "diagnosis and treatment."


The Institute has assembled a premiere panel of medical and nonmedical health experts for

this year's Symposium!  Among others, our speakers this year are listed below . . .
