December 14, 2011 Psychology Roundtable:

December 14, 2011 - Teachers College Psychology Roundtable: "Living in a Traumatic World" 

The 9/11 terrorist attacks. SARS. Hurricane Katrina. The Gulf oil spill. The earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan. 

Those are some of the stresses of life in the 21st century, along with the vicissitudes of love, aging and family relationships. The Office of Alumni Relations has partnered with TC's Psychology faculty to bring you "Living in a Traumatic World," the first in a series of TC Psychology Roundtables showcasing ongoing work across all psychological disciplines. "Living in a Traumatic World" brings together six diverse TC-affiliated experts to discuss and debate questions such as: What defines a traumatic experience or exposure to trauma? Do we learn or change from such experiences, or merely endure? Are there resilient and non-resilient types of people, and is their makeup genetically determined? How can we enhance resilience? What are possible therapeutic approaches? 

Please join us for what promises to be a stimulating and wide-ranging discussion. Moderated by TC's Marla Brassard, Professor of Psychology and Education, the panel will include TC faculty members George Bonanno, (resilience, grief and trauma); Lisa Miller, (religion & spirituality) and Phil Saigh (post traumatic stress disorder). They will be joined by TC alumnae and clinicians Dr. Dale Atkins, an expert on relationships, stress and life balance ; and Dr. Ghislaine Boulanger a Professor in the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis who is an expert on adult onset trauma.

Walk ins welcome.
