Panel with Community Forum: Our Country in Transition
DONALD KALSCHED, Ph.D., JEROME BERNSTEIN, M.A.P.C., NCPsyA., and JACQUELINE WEST, Ph.D.
Each November for the past few years, the panelists - Jacqueline, Jerome, and Don - have presented their current reflections about the state of our nation, followed by a group discussion. Given the radical and rapid shifts in our nation these months, it is naturally impossible, until November arrives, to closely identify what will be ripe for discussion at that time, although we can well imagine that it may serve us all to ruminate about what is emerging individually and collectively from the multi-leveled complexity of our current psycho-political world. We will explore whether the fast moving, surprising changes in our individual and collective lives are propelling us towards the edge of destruction, or, whether they are heralding an unexplainable transformation, an innovation, an essential re-formation, or both? How are we contending with these challenges?
