A maximum of 12 registrants are allowed for the Phoenix Master Class Online. Please email to be put on a wait list to be notified about available spaces.

For the first time, the Phoenix Master Class will be conducted online via our Zoom platform. The Master Class is open to licensed, experienced mental health professionals. This Master Class training program provides 28.0 hours of continuing education credit. Class will be held Saturday, October 24 through Tuesday, October 27th, from 9am to 5pm PST.

Based on expert modeling and direct feedback of attendee’s clinical work, this intensive workshop is intimate and limited to twelve attendees. Each attendee will assume four roles: two as patient; one as supervisor; and one as therapist with a peer. Each participant will get an experience as a demonstration patient with Dr. Zeig; will rotate into the role of therapist for another attendee; be a patient with a personal issue you would like to work on (not a case); and work as a supervisor of the peer-therapy dyad. The instructors supervise each trio.

The environment is intimate and supportive. The learning experience is rich and fertile. Although focused on Erickson-derived approaches, this program is an opportunity to advance clinical skills no matter what your professional orientation. The Master Class is an exceptional opportunity for therapist growth and development. Please contact for inquiries.
