2015 ACES WOMEN’S RETREAT October 6-8, 2015


Philadelphia’s “Main Line” and the St. Raphaela Center provide the background for our 2015 ACES Women’s Retreat. St. Raphaela Center (http://www.straphaelacenter.org) in Haverford, PA is approximately 30 minutes from the Philadelphia airport and somewhat less to downtown Philadelphia.

Format and Leaders: The purpose of the retreat is to establish professional and personal networks and to reflect on issues impacting us as female counselor educators. Christine Moll, our retreat facilitator and a native to Philadelphia, intends to build the experience upon themes of our destination! Through experiential learning, small group discussions, and personal reflections, we will connect with each other around those common themes. There will be many opportunities for networking.

Schedule: The retreat will begin between 4:00 and 4:30 pm Tuesday afternoon (October 6) and ends Thursday morning (October 8) by 10:00 a. m. You will receive CEs for attending this event.

What is Included: The registration fee of $135 includes dinner on Tuesday, all meals on Wednesday, and breakfast on Thursday, as well as housing (double occupancy). We have a limit of 40 participants.

The registration deadline is August 12, 2015.
