This year’s conference, jointly sponsored by Cedars-Sinai’s Psychological Trauma Center, and Cedars-Sinai’s addiction psychiatry program, will be among the best ASAP conferences to date. The presentations will be at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, in the Thalian’s Auditorium, in the heart of West Hollywood/Beverly Hills. Our location is blocks away from numerous restaurants, stores, stars, paparazzi, and all the absurdity that LA has to offer. The selected presenters are among the leaders in the field, drawing from local and national Universities, including Cedars-Sinai, UCLA, Harvard, and NYU. The program is constructed around two major themes, psychological trauma and addictions, with some violence presentations, featuring Park Dietz, among others, mixed in.
We secured unbelievable rates (starting at $160 a night! It’s a secret how we got this rate, but we had to pull strings …) at one of the hottest new hotel’s in Los Angeles, “Le Petite Hotel,” again in the heart of West Hollywood, one block away from the Sunset Strip. The hotel is two blocks away from The Viper Room, where River Phoenix OD’d, and one block away from the Santa Monica Boulevard nightlife, where red carpet events occur weekly. The hotel features one of the most stunning rooftop pool and lounges in Los Angeles. Although Le Petite will be the host hotel, there are numerous other hotels close by, for those wanting something else. Among the possibilities are the legendary Peninsula Hotel, Bel Air Hotel, Beverly Hills Hotel, Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and Mondrian Hotel.
Although there are numerous restaurants in the area. You can have lunch at “The IVY” where you are sure to see stars, or, if you do not wish to battle the paparazzi, you can eat at the original Jerry’s Deli. Both restaurants are one block away from Cedar’s auditorium.
Do not miss this year’s program!
