The Gould Center for Psychoanalytic Organizational Study and Consultation Citizen Forum: One Year Later
A Facilitated Group Event — MARCH 5, 2018 7:30-9:30PM at IPTAR Conference Room

The social and political partisanship that characterized the 2016 election has continued. As citizens, we have been subjected to a cascade of actions and pronouncements that has differed dramatically in tone and substance from anything we have experienced before. After a chaotic and fragmented beginning that led to failure in executing goals, those in power have coalesced to carry out their agenda in a manner that has been shocking even to many of those who are members of the same political party. While there has been some movement within our governmental system to assert checks and balances on what is feared to be moral corruption and emotional instability at the highest level, those whose side lost the 2016 election have been rendered powerless as major changes are taking place. However, there are also signs that the opposition is mobilizing with some initial success.

Join us for a Citizen Forum to take the pulse of our polity. What are the issues of greatest salience and impact as we experience them? Race? Economic disparity? Women’s rights? Sexual harassment in the workplace? Gun control? Climate change? Our standing among and relationships with other nations? How great is the danger of a nuclear attack? How secure is our democracy? How do these issues influence decision-making in the public domain? How do we understand the change that has swept aside the familiar social conventions and ethical norms of our governmental processes and its impact?

As we enter 2018 –another critical election year– our group discussion about these and other issues will enable us to identify common themes. We will then move to a deeper level of work to discover shared unconscious beliefs and currents influencing society and the body politic.

Seating for this group will be limited to the first 25 rsvps, so register early to secure a place.
