Hope, Outrage, Community: A Pre-Election Gathering @ Zoom
Oct 18 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Panelists: Frank Bosco, Perry Gunther, Michael Vincent Miller & Lee Zevy

Please join us for a structured community event ahead of perhaps the most momentous American presidential election ever — one that will have consequences for the U.S. as well as the rest of the world. A panel of speakers will reflect on relevant topics such as Paul Goodman and activism, how the current political climate is impacting therapists and clients, and the historical importance of the arts during times of crisis. There will also be opportunities to express and exchange, both in large and small groups, our hopes, fears, and other feelings about where we are in today’s charged — and unprecedentedly outrageous — environment.

SPECIAL EVENT ~ Working With Clay in Therapy: Coming Home to the Feeling of What Is @ Zoom
Jan 22 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
SPECIAL EVENT  ~  Working With Clay in Therapy: Coming Home to the Feeling of What Is @ Zoom

Presenter: Christine Stevens

Description:
Basically, this workshop involves playing with clay! This is an experiential workshop involving hands-on experiments with clay and theory discussion. It combines embodied connections and interpersonal neurobiology with clinical application. Clay can offer back to us our way of being in the world. Haptic perception, through touch, is our earliest and most fundamental form of human experiencing. We come to understand about the world through our hands. Using clay within the Gestalt therapy relationship combines kinesthetic motor action with sensory perception and field sensitivities. It gives us access to non-verbal affect, materializing into awareness experience that is then therapeutically available.

Learning Objectives:
Participants completing this workshop will be able to 1) integrate an informed understanding of the use of clay into their clinical practice; and 2) differentiate a distinctively Gestalt therapy theoretical approach to the use of clay from a phenomenological perspective.
