Upcoming "Book Club" Teleconference: Fairy Tales and the Social Unconscious
Date: Sunday, December 10, 2017
Time: 1:00-2:30 pm (Eastern)
Haim Weinberg, PhD, CGP, FAGPA, Director of International Programs, Professional School of Psychology, Sacramento, California
Ravit Raufman, PhD, University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel
This teleconference will address how their book combines the study of the social unconscious and the study of fairy tales. Examining different versions of fairy tales told by different ethnic communities teaches us about the relations between universal and local/cultural aspects of the social unconscious. The presenters will show the relevance and bring examples from group therapy.
This event is complimentary for AGPA Members. 1.5 CE credits are available at $22.50 for AGPA members/$45.00 for nonmembers. Detailed CE accreditation information can be found here.
