Greetings CCNY colleagues,
I hope this message finds you all doing well. On behalf of the 33rd annual CCNY conference planning team, I wanted to provide a brief update on our conference planning and get a preliminary attendance straw poll. As a reminder, the conference is being co-hosted by Lemoyne College and Syracuse University, and will be held on the SU campus. The pre-conference is June 3rd, with the conference itself on the 4th and 5th.
Our pre-conference session will be co-led by Dr. Ian Birky (Director, Lehigh University Counseling and Psychological Services) and Dr. Nicole Ruzek (Clinical Director/Group Coordinator, University of Virginia, Counseling & Psychological Services). The topic of this all-day pre-conference session will be building and sustaining an effective group therapy program. They will address philosophy, structure, and factors that contribute to a successful group program and they will also lead experiential exercises to deepen clinicians skills in leading groups. Space at this pre-conference will be limited to 75 attendees.
Our conference will kick off on Thursday, June 4th, with key note speaker Dr. Greg Eells, Director at Cornell University’s Counseling and Psychological Services Center. Dr. Eells will be speaking with us about building resiliency among Counseling Center staff.
The formal call for session proposals will be coming out later this week, so please begin thinking about proposal ideas. Likewise, we will also be opening registration shortly.
We're looking forward to seeing many of you in Syracuse in June.
