IAMFC World Conference 2018
February 1 @ 8:00 am - February 3 @ 5:00 pm
The International Association of Marriage and Family Counselors announces Dr. Pat Love as keynote speaker for the 2018 World Conference in New Orleans, LA, from February 1 through 3.
Pat’s keynote explores the timely topic, “The State of Our Unions.” While the functions of relationships remain firmly anchored by our humanity, the forms they take vary according to cultural needs and expression. When the lines between veracity and the virtual world become blurred, when significant relationships include blow-up dolls, avatars, and catfishing, when Facebook can’t keep up with requisite identifications of sexual expression and identity, how do therapists stay informed and attuned to this brave new world?
When the economic divide becomes a permanent division, when more and more people cannot afford to marry, when seven out of ten couples are plagued with financial stress, when the people who need services most can afford the least, how does a helper help?
Come join Pat and colleagues to explore the challenges and exciting opportunities as we join forces to further the mission of our noble profession.
