Join us for the upcoming Friday Evening Salon "Psychology on the Edge: Conversations on Suppression, Resistance and Transformations in the Field", a panel discussion with Oksana Yakushko, Michael Sipiora, and special guest Dr. Philip Cushman.
In his now classic American Psychologist article “Why the Self is Empty,” Philip Cushman (1990) called for a “rethinking” of the whole “business of psychology.” But he quickly noted that “most of us do not have the training to attempt such a task.”
On the 30th anniversary of the clinical Ph.D. program and as social engagement is included among the program’s core competencies, Chair Oksana Yakushko and Director of Research Michael Sipiora join Dr. Cushman in a discussion of graduate education in clinical psychology that addresses “the integrity of our profession,” and the “viability of our society” (Cushman, 1990).
This is event is FREE and open to the public.
The Friday Evening Salon series takes place on the Friday evening prior to Pacifica's Saturday event The Pacifica Experience: A One-Day Introduction to Pacifica's Graduate Degree Programs. Please visit our website for or more information about The Pacifica Experience.
