Recap of October 2020 Virtual Conference
Due to COVID-19, we switched our in-person March conference to a virtual platform for the first time ever in October and offered a 5 CEU training conference online with Dr. Patrick Carnes and Pennie Carnes entitled, "Sex, Cultures, and Addiction: The Church's Challenge in the #1 Public Health Problem." All attendees were impressed by the information received on the science in the healing of sexual addiction, sexual addiction and betrayal in the church, and sexual addiction and the metoo phenomenon.
