Description


The NCGPS Clinical Conference at Asilomar is a great tradition for Northern California Therapists to come together with friends and colleagues for deepening connection, learning and growing together.

We warmly invite you to join us at this exquisite coastal retreat, minutes from Monterey, for 2 1/2 stimulating days. Along with an intensive learning experience, there will be time to walk on the beach, socialize and network with colleagues. This unique learning opportunity allows clinicians to participate in immersive institutes led by master group therapists. The program includes a number of offerings and process groups suitable for all levels of experience.

HOME GROUPS

This year for the first time, along with our regular workshop schedule, the conference is featuring “Home Groups”. These groups offer all participants, newcomers and conference veterans alike, a welcoming space to connect more deeply with colleagues.
