Collaborating in the Past, Present, and Future:

Pre-Conference Institute on Therapeutic Assessment

Tuesday, March 28, 2023 | 8:30am-5:30pm | Austin, TX

Presented by the Therapeutic Assessment Institute with the Society for Personality Assessment

This year the Therapeutic Assessment Institute (TAI) is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the founding of The Center for Therapeutic Assessment (CTA) in Austin, TX. Since that time Therapeutic Assessment (TA) has contributed to a paradigm shift in psychology and to increasing numbers of clients around the world being included as collaborators in their psychological assessments. In this Pre-Conference Institute, held in conjunction with SPA, TAI faculty and practitioners will reflect on the development of TA over the last 30 years, discuss TA’s implementation in different settings around the world, and consider the future of training in Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment. In keeping with the core values of TA, we aspire to involve attendees as active participants and collaborators in considering these topics. Finally, in the evening, we will host a dinner party celebrating this special anniversary of the CTA. (Registration for the dinner will be handled separately.)
