The Psychotherapy Relationship: What Every Psychologist Should Know

Join us for a members-only opportunity to learn from an internationally recognized authority on the Psychotherapy Relationship. 

We’re excited to present this online mentoring ECP event for early career psychotherapists and psychologists who graduated 10 years or less from their graduate degree program, featuring Dr. John Norcross.

It will begin with a focused summary of meta-analyses on the contribution of the therapy relationship to treatment outcomes and of clinical behaviors that actualize the powerful relationship. Then we will transition into a lively exchange on the practice, training, and research implications of prizing the relationship. Come join us and the fray!

Join us March 20th 2015 at 3:00 pm EST for this Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy members-only event. 

Pre-registration for this GoToMeeting event is mandatory. Please RSVP to Dr. Rayna Markin at:

About the ECP Mentoring Hour Series

Are you an ECP who would like mentorship on starting a private practice, obtaining a grant to conduct psychotherapy research, or perhaps training future psychotherapists?

Many ECPs would like mentorship in a number of areas of psychotherapy research, practice, and training but find it hard to find the time to pursue mentorship opportunities. This is why the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy is happy to announce our new “mentoring hour” series.

The concept is simple.

The Division will be offering a series of one hour, topic specific, mentoring events, led by an expert in the field. ECPs will meet with the mentor using gotomeeting. This is a quick but meaningful way to obtain mentorship from an expert in psychotherapy while also meeting other ECPs in your field.
