Workshops & Conferences
Infinity’s clinicians are leaders in healthcare and are frequently sought out for our powerful presentations that leave attendees with information and resources that they can implement the same day at home, in their classroom, or in their therapy session. Our workshops include live experientials, group discussion, lecture, and video samples (when appropriate). We have presented at professional conferences at the local and national level, professional development workshops in school districts, and have provided private presentations to mental health practioners, early childhood providers, and other groups of individuals. Our workshops typically last 90 minutes-2 hours but we have planned workshops as short as 60 minutes and as long as 5 hours. Each workshop is independently quoted based upon the number of people attending, the type of presentation, and the length of the presentation.
A list of our most popular presentations are below. We proudly custom build workshops based upon a client’s needs. We are available to present during conference concurrent sessions, as a keynote speaker, and at school professional development workshops. Workshops are available in our clinic(s) and we also travel throughout the state.
