Join PSI for ‘Journeying Through Grief’, a Six-Week Series Spanning Fall 2015
If the work of grieving has a goal, it might be this: to realize that life will never be the same again, but to begin to sense that there is much in life that can be affirmed. PSI staff therapist the Rev. Sarah Segal McCaslin will be leading “Journeying Through Grief,” a six-week series to address loss, grief, and recovery starting October 21st. The group will meet Wednesday evenings at the Pine Street School; more details are available at the Trinity Wall Street website.
Fall 2015 Conference Raises Key Questions About ‘The Future of Spiritually Informed Treatment’
The Fall 2015 PSI Conference co-sponsored by The Interfaith Center of New York and American Association of Pastoral Counselors (Eastern Region) brought together scores of people from a range of disciplines and orientations to discuss ‘The Future of Spiritually Informed Treatment’ on Oct. 17; a summary of the proceedings can be found here. Keynote speaker Dr. Pilar Jennings, author of Mixing Minds: The Power of Relationship in Psychoanalysis and Buddhism, led the group in a shared Tonglen meditation; read more about that here. The general consensus was that more questions were raised than could be answered. A continuance of those collegial conversation is currently under consideration.
