Do you work with men in relationships?

Debates around patriarchy, gender equality, toxic masculinity, fatherhood and changing sexual dynamics surround us like fog, throwing us into an unusual time of transition, confusion and trouble.

Sessions Live 2018 will be a training event like no other for clinicians and coaches who work with men.

These debates have become so polarized that they don’t leave space for men to be allowed their full complexity and diversity.

This one-day event and workshop is built on the premise that if we support change in the emotional lives of men, it inevitably changes the lives of their partners.

Who will be in attendance?

Esther Perel

Esther Perel will host, present, and guide the second annual live event complement to her Sessions online platform. 

In addition, a diverse array of guests will be presenting at this year's Sessions Live. By bringing together clinicians from a multiplicity of backgrounds and disciplines, we will give you the tools you need to confidently work with men in your therapy or coaching practice.

Livestream is great but can I attend in New York instead?

In-person tickets are completely sold out. Livestream is a wonderful alternative way to participate in this one-time event.  You will be able to tune into the full event and have access to the same high quality content and teachers available.

Do I need to join the livestream all day?

Not necessarily! If you want to join us for the full day, we absolutely welcome you to. If your schedule doesn’t allow or time zones aren’t working in your favor, you will receive access the all archived material from the event to view on your own time.

How can I view the recording of the event afterward?

All ticket holders will have access to archived material from the event to view at any time through my Sessions platform. Due to length of the event, it takes some time to produce a quality archival material package. This can take up to 8 weeks. Our team will be in touch with details on how to access the material when it is ready.

Here's how to participate: 

Step 1: Register! - Reserve your seat, mark your calendar, and join our Facebook event page for up-to-date information and announcements.

Step 2: Join the livestream on November 10 with the unique access link you will receive at least a week before the event via email.

Step 3: Engage - Chat amongst the livestream community, leave comments and questions for Esther and guests.

Step 4: Take advantage of the archived content after the event. Revisit any sessions you want to rewatch or may have missed.

CEs will be available through R. Cassidy Seminars for a small fee, information to follow closer to the event date.
