"Women in Crisis: Scholarly and Clinical Perspectives" at USF -- Helping the community understand the effects of trauma--Free and open to the public

Women in Crisis Scholarly and Clinical Perspectives

The Film Series “Women in Crisis" is a collaboration
between The Tampa Bay Psychoanalytic Society
(TBPS), The Tampa Bay Institute for Psychoanalytic
Studies (T-BIPS) and the Department of Women's
Studies at the University of South Florida.

USF Tampa Campus, BEH 104, 6-9pm

4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, FL 33620

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. We have invited one USF scholar and one local clinician to speak (about 10 minutes each) after each of the films, and then to facilitate a discussion with the audience.
