More than 1,000 attended the 12th Brief Therapy Conference held at the Hyatt Regency, Orange County. With a workshop focus on treating anxiety, depression and trauma, several of this year’s keynote speakers, experts in these arenas, offered effective treatment options. Also notable was Philip Zimbardo’s engaging and entertaining two-hour keynote –a successful, fitting end to the Conference.
Faculty feedback on venue/hotel rooms, fellow presenters, conference administration, subject matter presented, and opportunities to network has been overwhelmingly positive. Volunteer feedback has also been positive. The 2014 Brief Therapy Conference was the first year the Foundation solely handled meeting planning, registration, and volunteer coordination. The Foundation’s small but dedicated staff rose to the occasion and Kayleigh Vaccaro did an impressive job serving for her first time as the Foundation’s Meeting and Faculty Coordinator.
In close proximity to Disneyland, the Hyatt Regency turned out to be a great venue with ample meeting space, comfortable hotel rooms and a helpful staff and the Foundation hopes to return.
