MEDIA ADVISORY: Turning Marriage and Family Theory into Practice

Free Breakfast Learning Series teaches professional counseling methods on cultivating lasting relationships with spouses and children

Join special guest speaker and family psychologist Lisa K. Hornibrook, Ph.D. this Friday, April 20, as she uncovers “Marriage & Family Therapy: From Theory to Practice,” during a free monthly Breakfast Learning Series hosted by Centerstone and Ivy Tech’s Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

The workshop will teach clinical professionals and community members how to turn theories on building strong, healthy relationships into effective practices by altering their views of the individual and understanding today’s relevant theories. Participants also will discover the best marriage and family counseling methods and practical applications to use when working with couples and families.

All clinicians and local residents supportive of those recovering from mental illness and addiction are invited to the free, educational Breakfast Learning Series sessions each month. This event qualifies for Category I Continuing Education Units with the Indiana State Psychology Board or Indiana Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapist and Mental Health Counselor Board. Continuing education credits are available for a $5.00 charge.
