Perfect timing for your 2023-24 Continuing Competence Program planning!

Calgary Family Therapy Centre’s 50th Anniversary Conference

August 16th-20th, 2023 

“Bringing Forth Generativities within Relational Disquiet”

In distinguishing disquiet, we are pointing to passionate differences that arise spontaneously among us as human beings. How such differences are managed make a huge difference in terms of outcome. Differences can become extremely divisive and problematic but at other times they can be channeled into remarkable creativity. Rather than trying to evade such disquiet, we intend to befriend it in ways that opens space to bring forth relational preferences at a variety of levels. This conference will focus on different kinds and sources of relational disquiet and how systemic family therapy practitioners might enable its potential generativity, a generativity that promotes healing and wellness, and also aims towards the kinds of collaboration that adds liveliness to life.

The worldwide family therapy community is converging August 16-20 in Calgary to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Calgary Family Therapy Centre.  To view the call for presentations, please view the Call for Proposals page at Presentation formats range from posters and ten-minute brief papers to symposia (multiple brief presentations on a related topic).
