About this Event

Couples and family therapy can be a key component in amplifying recovery practices. Individuals recover in the context of their support systems, therefore calling us to be competent in seeing them as one part of a whole. Join me for a comprehensive look at best practices for couples and family counseling.

We plan to have the 2021 Summit Virtually

August 9-13, 2021

During this ever-changing time and after much consideration and discussion by the WVAADC Board of Directors’ Professional Development Committee, the Board has decided to move the 2021 conference to an entirely virtual format. This decision was made keeping in mind the pandemic’s effects on agency travel budgets while also considering the health of our members and communities. We hope you will join us as we move to the virtual format and look forward to connecting with you in a meaningful way in August 2021!
