Register Now for 2017 Annual Caduceus Retreat

Registration is open for the 2017 Caduceus Retreat. The 31st annual retreat held by the TMF Physician’s Health Program is slated for Friday, June 23-Sunday, June 25, 2017, at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in Brentwood, TN.

PHP participants are required by their contracts to attend; graduates are encouraged to attend to continue learning and growing in recovery, and to connect with counterparts who are just beginning their recovery journey.

“This event can be a calibration for both our current participants and our graduates,” said TMF Administrator Mike Todd. “They learn from each other during our retreat; the newer ones find inspiration in those who are further along in the journey, and our veterans can find meaning and purpose in mentoring others,” he added.

Retreat Topic

This year’s meeting, titled “The Dance Between Emotional Sobriety & Secure Attachment,” will feature presentations by Deb Leinart, LPC-MHSP, LCPC (MT), and Christie Fultz, LPC-MHSP, LCPC (IL), EMDR.

Ms. Leinart has worked in the counseling field for over 30 years. Deb’s passion is bringing healing to people who have been through traumatic/stressful experiences. She helps her clients, who include adults, couples, and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, whole, and safe. Deb has extensive training in family therapy, experiential therapy, psychodrama, somatic experiencing, eating disorders, sexual addiction, chemical dependency, codependency, trauma, emotionally focused couples therapy, and equine assisted therapy. She currently is in private practice and leads 1-5 day intensives for couples.

Ms. Fultz has received extensive post masters training in both Experiential and Psychodrama Therapies. In addition, she has had specific training in addiction disorders, eating recovery, dual diagnosis, and somatic transformation. Most recently, she completed Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS) Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model (MPT-M) training which utilizes a trauma model perspective in treating the traumatic impact of sex addiction upon the partner or spouse. Christie consistently intertwines spirituality, along with other mindful practices, as a significant support for people. She believes that therapy is a highly intimate and deeply personal process into the innate truth and essence of another and must be approached with safety, caring, empathy, compassion and deep respect. Christie currently has a private practice in Nashville. She offers individual therapy and individual intensives in both Tennessee and Illinois.
