2024 Featured Diamond Sponsor

Thank you to our Platinum Sponsors:
With a heavy heart, we're sharing that keynote speaker Sue Johnson passed away after a three-year battle with cancer. Sue was the developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), a longtime trainer for PESI and Psychotherapy Networker, and a dear friend to many on our staff. We are deeply saddened by her loss and grateful for all the opportunities we had to partner together.
