Bradley Conference is designed to provide education for psychologists, social workers, physicians, nurses, certified counselors,
speech/language and occupational therapists, teachers, milieu
therapists, and other professionals. Topics address different behavioral
health populations and treatment modalities and are intended to provide
practical, state-of-the-art information.
Bradley Hospital's clinical expertise, internationally renowned
research, and academic affiliation with The Warren Alpert Medical School
of Brown University make the hospital a unique resource in all areas of
behavioral health care. We have designed a wide range of learning
experiences to provide the training that behavioral health care
professionals need to stay at the forefront of their fields. Meet the program planners.
Continuing education credits are available.
