                  DEAR COLLEAGUE,
                We are in the midst of planning the most exciting event in our company’s 13-year history.
                We felt the time was right to plan an extraordinary event: the Healing and Treating Trauma,
 Addictions and Related Disorders Conference. You do not want to miss it. The four-day conference
 is scheduled for November 16 – 19, 2010 in Richmond, British Columbia. Jack Hirose and Associates is
 honored to co-sponsor Canada’s premier psychotherapy conference with EDGEWOOD Treatment Centre.
 EDGEWOOD is an internationally renowned private addictions treatment centre, located on Vancouver
 Island, and Canada’s leader in alcohol and drug treatment.
 We have invited many of the finest presenters in our field. Keynote presenters have been carefully chosen
 for their outstanding presenting abilities and cutting-edge knowledge. We will be offering many topics
 relevant to mental health practitioners, i.e. multiple addictions, trauma, eating disorders, depression, anxiety,
 eroticized rage/anger, relationships, borderline personality disorder, dual disorders, cybersex, emotional self-
 regulation, dissociation and healing, EMDR: Trauma Power Tool, solution-focused therapy and other topics.
 Ultimately, the conference is about fostering career development and to inspire you to excel with your
 clients. The conference will offer many opportunities to network with others and create a soul-enriching
 and memorable experience.
 You will not be disappointed. Mark this event on your calendar. We look forward to seeing you at this
 special event in November 2010.
