The Boston University School of Medicine Guerette Symposia Series was founded in 2019 as a continuation of the popular series offered for mental health professionals for many years by Dr. Rob Guerette. The series was initially designed as a quarterly, live symposia series providing psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric social workers, psychiatric nurses, and allied mental health professionals with outstanding opportunities to combine a stimulating symposium in relaxing and diverse locations.

The quarterly offerings listed below are designed to offer professionals updates in recent advances in several widely varied areas of mental health. In addition to the didactic lectures, there will be ample time for interchange between the participants and presenters. All programs are conducted by distinguished faculty who are leaders in their field. CME, CNE along with CE credits for psychologists, social workers and licensed mental health counselors will be offered.

Please scroll down to see details on our upcoming programs. We look forward to seeing you.
