Yes its OK to be a little late. Most members leave by 1:00 ish. Some earlier if necessary while many others may hang out a while longer to network and connect.

We follow an informal loose format. We go around and do brief intros. People are free to mingle before and after. During the main part of the meeting attendees can choose to eat their meal at one of 4 smaller tables of 6 based on topics related to private practice. These are facilitated informally by members who volunteer to lead a discussion.
That part takes about half the time so the rest is informal networking. Typical topics include: DBT, working with teens, ethics in pp, EMDR, couples work.
If you'd like to lead a topic just let Deb know.
For this date we have 4 choices:
Boundaries in pp ( includes handling unexpected termination) with Kate Walsh
Medication with David Burns, MD
Assertiveness training or principles in tx with Marion Frank, PhD
Working with " resistance" with Kevin Drab, LPC
