BHOPB to Host Nationally Recognized Dr. Meg Givnish for Upcoming Training Session

On Saturday January 11, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches will be hosting a training seminar in partnership with world-renowned mental health expert, Dr. Meg Givnish. The training session will be held at the Singer Island Hilton (3700 North Ocean Drive, Riviera Beach, FL 33404) from 9:00am-11:30am, and is the first in a series of sessions to be held over the course of the next several months. It will focus heavily on Psychodrama therapy, a psychotherapeutic technique in which individuals spontaneously act out assigned roles within a dramatic context in order to better understand the behavior of those with whom they have difficulty interacting.

Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches is expecting this training series to significantly enhance the already vast expertise of our staff, and is honored to be able to partner with such a distinguished and accomplished guest as Dr. Givnish. We’re grateful for all we can learn from her. This training is a rare opportunity for personnel in all areas of mental health to improve their therapeutic and intrapersonal skills and gain invaluable knowledge from a pioneer and leading contributor in the field of Psychodrama.

Guests who wish to attend may RSVP to Amanda Decamillo at adecamillo@bhpalmbeach.com. Limited seating is available.
