About The PPSC Annex™

Workshops and Events Sponsored by the PPSC Annex™

The PPSC Annex™ provides opportunities for mental health practitioners to augment their core clinical training. The Annex offers seminars, workshops and programs on complementary modalities, theories and techniques, practice building and management, and other areas of mental health education. PPSC annex™ classes are both practical and affordable, and offer quality exposure to new areas of practice without requiring the commitment of a full training program.

In the coming year and beyond, look for training in a wide variety of areas including parenting, creative arts therapies, body-centered therapies, sex therapy and more.
