2015 Workshop Series: Basic Pharmacology for Psychotherapists

The field of mental health and well-being is more and more requiring a multi-modal, holistic approach to the practice and process of psychotherapy.  As practitioners within this diverse environment, it is an important augmentation to a therapist’s knowledge to be conversant in, and informed about, the kinds of psychopharmacological interventions that are often used in conjunction with psychotherapeutic work.

Where Theories of Human Development and The Feminist Movement Begin to Work on the Same Project

Jo-Anne Corbeil and Barbara Dewar are sending you an invitation to audit our Lecture on November 29, 2003 at 316 Dupont Street at 1:00 P.M. $ 25. at the door or sliding scale. The topic:

Where Theories of Human Development and The Feminist Movement Begin to Work on the Same Project Supporting a Pathway to Cultural Inclusion

This lecture traces the history of theories of human development (psychodynamic/child development), challenges by the feminist movement and Esprit Social practice and supports connection in understanding another culture. We see a movement from de-contextualized theory where the expert makes universal statements about human growth to contextualized theory where the issues involve understanding personal context from a health model rather than a disease perspective.

Look forward to the announcement of our next speaker for our Speaker Series
