August is here, and The Wilderness Therapy Symposium is right around the corner. Several Evoke Entrada employees are preparing presentations for the Symposium, hosted by the Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare Council in Park City, UT August 23rd – 25th. Evoke therapists Matt Hoag, Tim Mullins, John Tobias and Trina Grater will be presenting, along with the Health and Wellness Coordinator, Elise Mitchell, and the Program Director, Katelyn BeVard. Evoke has teamed up with several other professionals in the field of Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare to create a more rounded perspective. These workshops will provide a wide range of topics and opportunities for professional growth for attendees of the conference.
As Owner and Clinical Director, Matt Hoag, Ph.D, spends a lot of his time focusing on clinical research and best practices. He will present on Friday morning at 9:00 am with colleagues on the Limits of Wilderness Therapy and again, on Saturday at 1:30pm, he will share and explore research pertaining to the backgrounds of Field Guides and how it relates to the treatment process. Tim Mullins, CMHC, LCPC, and Elise Mitchell, E-RYT, will explore challenging relationships and navigating complex interactions from the views of interpersonal neurobiology, interaction and engaged relationships. Tim will also present with John Tobias, ACMHC, and a colleague at 4:00 pm on Friday to discuss the transition from Wilderness to a continuing care program. Lastly, Trina Grater, ACMHC, and Katelyn BeVard will join forces with a local Utah County outpatient therapist to examine the importance of authenticity and collaboration when working within a treatment team to provide the best care for clients. Many of these workshops will utilize qualitative and quantitative research to demonstrate best practices and invite participation from the audience.
