We welcome your submission for complex cases! Complex cases was designed to allow people to share their insights on treating patients that do not present “textbook”, have multiple co-existing factors and to help new therapists learn how more experienced therapist critically think through patient’s presentation. This session also gives an opportunity for therapists with some experience to “get their feet wet” with speaking and feel comfortable sharing their thought process.
If your case is chosen we will contact you directly! Submit your case before the deadline.

The past year was a year of connection and isolation. We faced a pandemic together, but the effects of that pandemic could be intensely personal. We sought to address social justice issues as a country, yet our lived experiences with those issues varied widely. We advocated for our profession with a more unified voice than ever, but the results of those efforts were a mix of victories and disappointments.
Through the year, APTA channeled the profession's energy, commitment, and compassion, helping our members navigate uncharted territory while creating opportunities for growth. For us, 2020 wasn't about simply surviving—it was about continuing to pursue our transformative vision.
