The film series "Women in Crisis: Scholarly and Clinical Perspectives" is a collaboration between the Tampa Bay Institute for Psychoanalytic Studies (T-BIPS), the Tampa Bay Psychoanalytic Society, and the Department of Women's Studies at the University of South Florida. The series will take place on Thursday evenings in building/room BEH 104 from 6:00PM-9:00PM on USF's Tampa campus. It is free and open to the public.

The theme of the film series, "Women in Crisis" complements and enhances T-BIPS/ Institute's clinical Workshop on Trauma (Oct 08-Mar 09) entitled "Healing Haunted Lives." The film series will feature academic and clinical perspectives of trauma explored through women in film. The goal is to provide an accessible way for the public to discuss the topic of struggle and transformation in women's lives. These are key themes that are studied and researched in the academic discipline of Women's Studies.

One USF scholar and one local clinician will speak briefly after each of the films, and then facilitate a discussion with the audience.
