Who We Are

Annual Fall Conference set for Oct. 23 & 24 in Ashland

Planning has begun for our annual 2-day educational event. The 2015 theme is “Journey into Healing” and we will be gathering at Southern Oregon University in Ashland on Friday Oct. 23 and Saturday Oct. 24, 2015.

Right now we are actively seeking Sponsors and Exhibitors (details here), Award Nominations and Speakers. Visit those links to be involved!

The event kicks off with a 1-day Ethics workshop (6 CEs) from nationally known speaker Ofer Zur, PhD, licensed psychologist, forensic consultant and pioneer in the development of the ethical and effective managed-care-free psychotherapy practice. On Saturday we’ll resume our breakout sessions so you can have a wide variety of topics to learn about, including a keynote session by Darryl S. Inaba, PharmD, recognized internationally as one of the foremost authorities on drugs and addiction. He wrote Uppers, Downers, All Arounders, a reference used at over 400 colleges nationwide, and he has produced several published articles and a series of award winning educational films on various aspects of addiction science. Our Saturday lunch event features a legislative update from Oregon State Representative Peter J. Buckley.

The conference also offers a unique opportunity to incorporate cultural entertainment with counselor education:  Attend the well-known Shakespeare Festival for fun and CEs! Tickets are limited so be sure to add that to your registration here: www.regonline.com/orca2015
