The Roundtable 2015-2016

The Roundtable

The Roundtable

Bangor, Whiting, Bucksport and Bremen


The Roundtable provides mental health clinicians with the opportunity to be participant-presenters–learning from each other, providing peer support and researching and presenting in areas of personal interest.  The Roundtable also hopes to support/develop play therapists.

How it Works

Each participant/presenter presents on an area of interest once during the year.   Typically the presentations are 1 1/2 to 3 hours long.  Meeting with the same small group of therapists during the year facilitates supportive relationships.
