About this Event


Inspired Globally | Implemented Locally: Cultivating Diverse Roots

The 2019 PCIT International Biennial Convention theme encapsulates the need to learn from a diverse global community while keeping our local efforts sustainable. It also reminds us of the importance to cultivate the roots that tie us all together through diversity and inclusion---not only for the families we serve, but also for our therapists and trainers.


Palmer House Hilton | 17 E Monroe St. | Chicago, IL 60603
