The Existential Humanistic Institute Invites You to the Launching of Their Film Series
Hosted by Candice Hershman, MA, MFT
Cinema is the great contemporary art form of the 20th and 21st century. In his book, Sculpting in Time (1987), Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky asserted that cinema, along with music, was the most personally impactful art form in the sense that it has the capacity to bring us into the most direct experience of a story possible. Through suspended belief, an audience can experience a moving work of art in a palpable way, transcending the barriers that separate us from the world of the "other," and expanding our sense of personal emotional life through a deep intimacy that is developed with complex characters and estranged worlds. Existential Humanistic Psychology has a rich history of creative acknowledgement, recognizing that artists are perhaps among the greatest of psychological minds. Because of this, we invite the community to share a filming experience with each other, both as observers and dialectic participants.
Cost: $15 per screening. EHI Members will only be charged $10
Where: Laguna Grove Care, 624 Laguna St, San Francisco, CA 94102
Due to limited seating, please RSVP in advance with Candice Hershman at email@example.com or 415-328-4575.
- We hope to see you there. Bring popcorn!
Sunday, May 6th, 2012, 2 – 5:30 PM: The Elephant Man (1980), directed by David Lynch.
Film Synposis: The Elephant Man was nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best picture, Director, and Screenplay, and was also nominated for four Golden Globes. The Elephant Man won Best Foreign Film at the French Syndicate of Cinema Critics. David Lynch tells the true story of John Merrick, a severely disfigured man who made his way through the world pimped off as a circus freak until he was discovered by a surgeon, Frederick Treves, who had an agenda of his own. The transformation that occurs as a result of the relationship leaves the good doctor to examine his own character and the disfigured man to discover the great beauty that lies beneath his repulsive exterior. The film is a masterful portrait of the collective shadow, what we value, disregard, as well as the beauty and ugliness that exists within every human being regardless of what we choose to invite in or cast out.

Love in the Psychotherapy Relationship

Location: CIP, 1330 Lincoln Ave, San Rafael, Suite 201
CE Credits: 4 CEUs per session approved for MFT's and LCSWs and 4 CEUs approved per session by the MCEPAA for Psychologists
Freud once said to Jung: “Psychoanalysis is in essence a cure through love.” If this is true, is psychotherapy a “love cure”? Is there a therapeutic kind of love? What forms does it take? How might “disorders of the heart” appear in psychotherapy? More personally, how does love (or the lack of it) in our own lives affect our work with our patients? The overall purpose of this series of seminars is to contemplate the varieties of love in the therapeutic relationship. Practical applications of theory to clinical work will be central to the seminars. We will explore Jungian, existential- humanistic, and contemporary psychoanalytic perspectives on love.

He has also trained in contemporary psychoanalytic, existential, and transpersonal approaches and has practiced meditation for 40 years. He teaches at the C. G.

- Betsy Cohen, PhD, LCSW, is a Jungian psychoanalyst in Albany, CA and has been in private practice for 38 years. She is the author of The Snow White Syndrome and several papers on the practice of Jungian psychoanalysis. She is a teaching analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.
- Jane Jordan, PsyD, is a psychoanalyst with practices in San Francisco and Santa Cruz. She is a training and supervising analyst for the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles and a member, coordinator and instructor for the international advisory council of the International Association for Psychoanalytic Self Psychology.

EHI's Third Annual Conference
From Crisis to Creativity: Necessary Losses, Unexpected Gains
November 19-21, 2009
First Unitarian Universalist Church & Center
1187 Franklin, San Francisco, CA 94109
The theme of our conference reflects the paradoxical nature of life and our times. In order to change and grow, a familiar way of being must end. As people and therapists, we are often at the center of a person's dance between loss and gain, between the comfort of the old and the anxiety of the new. This conference will attempt to further our understanding of this dance and the richness and diversity of its movements.
