About iaedp Symposiums Webinar Sessions on Demand

The value of the overall iaedp program is perhaps best seen in its annual Symposium. The conference draws attendees from all corners of the globe, including especially numerous professionals from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and the United Kingdom. It is geared to the needs and problems of those who work with patients in a therapeutic environment. Interchange among participants is constant and challenging: workshops, professional development Institutes and plenary sessions focus on "cutting edge" information and techniques. In this conference, the emphasis is on exchange of information, not just listening! These webinar sessions on demand are recorded at our symposiums.
