2020 Symposium

2020 Symposium


The NBCC Foundation hosted the 2020 Bridging the Gap Digital Experience: Counseling Together, Apart June 16–19, 2020. This virtual event was held in lieu of the annual Bridging the Gap Symposium because of global health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.


This year’s event included a mix of NBCC-approved continuing education topics within the overall theme of “Family Matters,” with an emphasis on counseling skills, research, and resources that can improve, strengthen, or enrich families that represent minority and other underserved communities. Sessions explored topics such as: intimate partner violence; infertility and reproductive loss; serving immigrant, refugee, and undocumented families; counseling South Asian families; working with military families; and exploring historical issues impacting modern Black families.


Thank you to all our volunteer presenters and over 300 attendees for helping us make this an event to remember. Stay tuned for information about next year’s event. We hope to see you all in person at the 2021 Bridging the Gap Symposium!
