First Symposium on Addictions and Fifth AMOPP International Counseling Encounter

In October 2013, NBCC International (NBCC-I) was invited to attend the fifth International Counseling Encounter and first Symposium on Addictions, hosted by the Asociación Mexicana de Orientación Psicológica y Psicoterapia (Mexican Counseling and Psychotherapy Association; AMOPP) and Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. The events shared the theme “Addictions and Clinical Approaches: Scientifically Based Counseling.”

An international group of attendees from the public and private sectors received information about addictions treatment from Mexican and U.S. experts. Many notable presentations were offered on the role of gender, HIV, family therapy, and psychosocial and pharmacological aspects of the field. NBCC-I was honored to participate in these events and looks forward to attending the sixth International Counseling Encounter, scheduled for October 2014 at the Universidad Iberoamericana campus in Puebla, Mexico.
