About the Summit

Recent headlines about celebrity suicides, the long-lasting impact of untreated trauma, and the opioid and stimulant crises have made the role of the clinical professional more important than ever. New research, evolving treatment concepts, and recognition of different cultural perspectives are creating opportunities for therapists, psychologists, counselors, social workers, and other clinicians to create effective and innovative treatment plans for their patients. Be part of the discussion as experts explore creating holistic treatments integrating spiritual and psychosocial treatments backed by research at the second annual Summit for Clinical Excellence in Phoenix. 
The Summit is more than an educational conference. With breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains amid the tranquility of the Sonoran desert, the We-Ko-Pa resort offers an ideal location to rejuvenate personally and professionally. Conference activities are designed to help you develop your clinical skills, grow relationships with like-minded peers, and provide you with a setting to take time out of your busy practice to relax and recharge.
