Ask the Experts #5 - Bethany Brand & Special Guest Frank Putnam
ISSTD is thrilled to launch our new Ask the Experts Series - Benefitting the Fridley Fund. Participate in a series of six 90 minute Ask the Expert virtual meet-up discussions with legends in the field of trauma and dissociation. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions to the experts in advance as well as ask questions live during each meet-up. This series is exclusively available to ISSTD Members. Discounted pricing is available for students and emerging professionals!
For this session only, there will be no PM session so all those registered for the PM series will be automatically enrolled in the AM series. Registration will be limited to 30 participants for this session.
All funds collected for this series will benefit the Fridley Fund which defrays the cost of one training activity offered through ISSTD for students who would otherwise be unable to obtain appropriate instruction in the treatment of complex trauma and dissociation.
These sessions are for general conversation, not patient specific consultation. Please prepare general questions for the experts, and if you are seeking patient consultation time, you will need to seek that out on an individual basis.
Please note that registration for the Ask The Experts series is in ISSTD's new Online Learning Center. If you have not yet created an account on this site you will need to do so before you complete your registration. Your ISSTD Membership account will not work for the login. Please create your account using the email address you have on file with ISSTD. If you are an ISSTD member it may take up to 48 business hours for your membership status to be updated in order to provide the correct fees. If you do not see your membership status updated within 48 hours please email email@example.com for assistance.
