Annual Symposia

The Annual Symposium on Family Theory and Family Psychotherapy was initiated in 1965 by graduating psychiatric residents as they prepared to go to widely separated places of practice. They proposed an annual "homecoming" at which they could present papers to each other and hear about new developments in the Georgetown program and in the family field nationally.

While the size and format of the Symposium has changed over the years, the purpose of presenting the highest level of systems thinking has remained.

Since the beginning, an important feature of the Symposium has been the Distinguished Guest Lecturer. In the early years, guest experts were pioneers in the field of family therapy. Later guest experts were researchers and scientists whose work had the potential to extend knowledge about the family and develop a science of human behavior.

Distinguished Guest Lecturers have been leading authorities in such diverse fields as sociobiology, ecology, primatology, evolution, neurobiology, genetics, and medicine.
