Sac/N.Inland: Beyond Rants and Raves; Clinical Steps and Missteps in a Volatile Political Climate. Nov. 2, 2018, 6-8 pm, UCD Mind Institute. Our political beliefs are a reflection of our most closely held values and hard-won life experiences; this is also true of our clients. Our religious or spiritual beliefs and backgrounds, still embraced or rejected, also are an intimate reflection of our values, as they are for our clients. What are the dangers and opportunities unique to the clinical encounter embedded in 2018 American culture? Are there capacities the clinician can develop that make it more possible to hold on to the capacity to think or to become aware when the capacity to think is interrupted? Presenters Susan Flynn, PhD, and Erik Shwarts, MD will discuss clinical concepts such as countertransference, enactment, and rupture and repair, embedded in case examples. Audience participation is encouraged, so the discussion can be clinically useful. RSVP to    (Ad expires:  Tuesday, November 13th 2018)
