This series is comprised of lectures and workshops that promote interdisciplinary conversations focused on human identity, suffering, and potential, with particular concern for the enduring ethical questions at the heart of human existence.
Many of our offerings offer continuing education (CEs) for psychologists, licensed mental health counselors, and social workers. Please see below for more details related to specific offerings. Past offerings can be found at the bottom of the page.
Human life demands the fullest account of itself -- lest we fall into simplistic reductions, corrosive divisiveness, and calcified identifications. The Psychology and the Other Conference is a biennial convening space that models what it points to -- a sandbox meant to allow for the play of languages, ideas, and formulations across fields and disciplines.
Our hope is to foster new and emergent ways of speaking to human identity, suffering, and potential -- not for knowledge’s sake alone, but in order to better serve the call of the suffering Other. Academics, clinicians, and students seeking dialogue are welcome to call this space home.
