Maine Colloquium

MAY 5, 2009
Reception 5:00 - 6:00 pm
Presentation 6:00 - 7:30 pm

Dr. Deb Butterfield will present a lecture "Intuition as a Reliable Skill in a Clinical Setting and as a Resource for Client Health and Well-being"

Intuitive awareness appears to be increasingly compromised by a complex reality unique to our culture: the pace of daily living; absorption of too much information; over identification with cultural ideals of productivity; the impact of the media's subliminal messages and exposure to trauma all affect intuitive awareness. Unexpressed or overwhelming emotions, fear and stress impede intuitive receptivity.  In depression, intuitive awareness is often shut down, depriving individuals of a natural means towards health and wholeness.

Who Should Attend:
Social Workers, Mental Health professionals, Individuals interested in pursuing a master's degree in social work and Interested members of the community.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

The Colloquium will be held in Jewett Hall Auditorium, 77 Fort Road, on the Southern Maine Community College Campus in South Portland, Maine. Attendees may park where "Visitor Parking" is designated on the map.
