Additional Events

We are pleased to welcome back Nancy Gaulin, Psy.D, who is being joined by, Rebecca Schulman, MSW, LICSW, to run private small groups for our survivors with DID. These groups will take place in the morning before the start of the conference and during the lunch break. These require a pre-registration so groups can be low in numbers. If you are interested in joining a group, you can register here. https://form.jotform.co/aninfinitemind/small-group-registration

During the lunch break, we will have chat and chews for supporters, survivors, and mental health professional looking to connect on a more personal level. These groups are run by mental health professionals and do not require any advance registration. Simply grab you lunch and come!

If none of these groups interest you, feel free to use the conference community board to create your own meet up.

Grounding spaces will be set up for those who need it and the Creative Corner will be here with activities to help unleash your inner creative spirit. We will also be making an art exhibit area if you have any pieces you would like to show. Art must be preapproved. Please click here to see the art submission guidelines.
