Better Than Money-Back Guarantee
The Oasis Psychiatry Conference continues its famous tradition of the 100+100 Guarantee: If you are not satisfied with the conference for whatever reason, we will then refund 100% of your tuition and an additional $100 as our thank you for giving us a chance to serve you.
still not convinced?
The Oasis Psychiatry Conference differs from all other psychiatric conferences by being powerfully practical. Sure, our faculty members are up-to-date on the latest research, but the difference is they are not shy about giving actionable guidance on how to manage difficult patient cases. I get frustrated when listening to speakers who can quote research findings all day long, but won’t answer clinical questions with other than generic platitudes.
Since the Oasis Psychiatry Conference has a better-than-money back guarantee, it’s not in my interest to make it sound better than it is. So, I can say to you with confidence: if you are a front line practitioner, you’ll leave the conference with actionable guidance that will increase your level of confidence and competence. You’ll feel better about your job because you will have gained a higher level of mastery over challenging situations. That’s what effective learning is all about. So, please plan on joining us.
Who should attend
The Oasis Psychiatry Conference helps you navigate real-world clinical challenges when working with adults of all ages. Too often psychiatric presentations focus too narrowly on specific disorders and their treatments. Although crucial, this narrow focus ends up not addressing the complexity inherent in guiding a human being (the patient) and those who love him or her (friends and family) through the months and possibly years of treatment. The conference addresses this broader context by tackling problems related to, for example, treatment adherence, keeping appointments, parental mutual agreement, and acting out behaviors by members of the family unit.
Given the Conference’s focus, attendance can benefit all clinicians who treat adults with psychiatric, emotional, and behavioral issues. Professionals who will benefit include:
- Psychiatrists and residents
- Psychiatric Nurses
- Nurse Practitioners
- Physician Assistants
Although treatment with medications is a primary focus, even non-prescribing professionals can benefit from a thorough understanding of the benefits, limitations, and potential adverse effects of pharmacotherapy.
Additional presentations (with wide applicability to all degreed professionals) focus on clinic procedures, career design, and clinician well-being.
And last, the Oasis Psychiatry Conference includes a better-than-money back guarantee that gives you the peace of mind that if the conference is not right for you, you can simply let us know to activate your guarantee.

Why specialize in anxiety disorders?

“I don’t like to miss this program-maybe “I am addicted to it”. Getting better every year.”
Dominic Gomes, MD, Westlake, OH
“Dr. Jack, I go to lots of meetings, and yours are among the most useful and enjoyable. I appreciate your obvious understanding of the balance between learning and absorbing so much information, and the need to pace that learning with meaningful opportunities for rest and relaxation between sessions. Thank you!”
Pam Forbes, MD, Roswell, GA
“This is my first Oasis conference and I am already looking forward to attending annually. The speakers, who are experts in their field, gave current information and new data on research, which are relevant to clinical practice. They provided practical approaches to difficult cases. I also appreciate the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel resort, which is also suitable for a family getaway.”
Rinah Gutierrez, MD, Kennewick, WA
“This course met, and in most cases, exceeded my expectations for such a course. The opportunity to “catch up” on the latest clinical information and research in both adult and child/adolescent psychiatry was incredible. I also greatly appreciate the opportunities to interact with so many psychiatrists in different types of practices.”
Robert Zeszotarski, MD, Santa Margarita, CA
“Great way to reconnect with faculty, colleagues and friends, and share/learn new knowledge and stay up to date. Fun way to earn needed CME.”
A. Temerova, Los Angeles, CA
“Jack, this was a SPECTACULAR course, practical and useful. One of the most powerful presentations was your presentation on suicide. I have recently supported the expansion of intensive outpatient services, and your concept and strategies to suicide treatment and assessment is what I will bring back to my team. I believe this additional education is the support needed to all case managers. Thank you!!”
Maria Villarosa, Riverside, CA
“I appreciated the lack of “Drug Rep” types of influences. Wonderful conference in a beautiful setting.”
Louis James Land, Colorado Springs, CO
“Amazingly comprehensive course by experts in the field that review most relevant research. Worth every penny. Love how many CMEs we get from the conference.”
Laila Contractor, Ladera Ranch, CA
“I have been a client since 2005 and plan to continue attending until I retire.”
Kim R. Guy, Los Angeles, CA
“Appreciate the separate adult and pediatric tracks. Topics were much more relevant to my clinical practice.”
Lucia Cheng, San Jose, CA
“Every year I love learning key interventions, treatment plans, and recommendations that I can apply in my practice. I appreciate taking time off to participate in a course that provides practical information. Never a waste of my educational time, which is so important to me. My time is valuable and you don’t let me down.”
Maria Villarosa, Riverside, CA
“Excellent Comprehensive review that exceeds just focusing in pharmacology. Good emphasis on benefits of CBT and medical legal risks.”
Audrey Hill, MD, Grand Blanc, MI
“Truth be told Dr. Jack, the fact that despite this mastery and executed course you feel and know you can make it better, is a testament to your awesome character. An inspiration to us all! You search and seek from all you can for ways to improve. You optimize Human potential in ALL of us.”
Bethie Wharton, Ann Arbor, MI
“I love how these conferences provide me with practical information that I can implement immediately in my practice.”
Alison Sikes, St. Cloud, MN
Very useful, practical information. Increased my confidence in decision making in treating psychiatric conditions. As a mid-practitioner, I felt this was an excellent overview of what is needed for a safe and effective delivery of psychiatric care.
