About the event

After a four-year absence due to COVID, the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity is once again planning to hold an in-person Institute. This year’s Institute is going to be held on Friday, November 10, at the Hampton Inn Las Vegas Strip South. Link to book your hotel with a discount code will be sent to you after you purchase your ticket. (Check in Nov 9, Check out Nov 11)

Any licensed or pre-licensed therapist may receive up to 7.5 hours CE credits during the Institute and an additional 4.5 hours obtained afterward online. Non-attendees may purchase access to all video presentations online. CE credits are awarded through CE Broker and certificates will be awarded that usually apply to the continuing education requirements for State licensure renewal. 

Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Al Howsepian, MD, Ph.D., M.A*. He will be speaking to Institute attendees on the topic, 

”Ten Critical Ethical, Conceptual, and Clinical Cautions Concerning the Diagnosis and Treatment of Gender Dysphoria and Transgender Identification.”

There will be other presentations as well during the day on medical, therapeutic, and research topics as well as sessions geared more to a lay audience. These will be announced as soon as they are finalized. There will also be an extended lunch time for long-term friends and colleagues to catch up with one another after such an extended hiatus.

*Dr. Howsepian received his B.A. in Psychology from California State University, Fresno (CSUF), his M.D. from the University of California, Davis, and his M.A. and Ph.D. in Philosophy (with concentrations in Metaphysics, Philosophy of Mind, Ethics, Philosophy of Religion, and the History of Philosophy) from the University of Notre Dame. His doctoral dissertation in Philosophy was on the metaphysics of free will. He completed his residency training in Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco Fresno Medical Education Program (UCSF FMEP).

Dr. Howsepian is board certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and is a member of the American Neuropsychiatric Association, the International Society for ECT and Neurostimulation, and the American College of Psychiatrists.
