It’s conference time. Well, okay it’s still almost a year away, but it is time to generate interest in pre-conference workshops, keynote speakers, pull-out sessions, and of course the grand extravaganza (who doesn’t love dinner and dancing?). As our tradition, Somatic Psychotherapy Today will focus its Winter 2016 issue on the upcoming USABP Conference, July 21-23 in Providence, Rhode Island, and the EABP Congress, October 13-16 in Athens, Greece.
