Walking the Talk: Relational-Cultural Theory in Action

Free | Professional Webinar
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (ET)

Presented by: Amy Banks, MD

Held Online

In 2015, Dr. Amy Banks met Isaac Knapper, the man who was wrongfully convicted of murdering her father over three decades earlier. That meeting launched the beginning of an unlikely relationship and led to healing for them both. In November 2021, their book, Fighting Time, was published by Regal House Publishing as a way to share the healing power of relationships.

In this webinar, Dr. Banks will not only share the amazing story of their relationship, but also will highlight RCT lessons learned that continue to impact her personal as well as professional life—helping clients heal from trauma.
