The Sue Fairbanks Psychoanalytic Research Collaboration presents
TINA ADKINS, PHD
Defense mechanisms explained
We’ve all heard of “denial”…and it’s definitely not a river in Egypt! In this session, we will dive deeply into these dark waters, hopefully shining a light on how a number of common defenses both protect and harm their owners.
A light lunch will be served. Free CEUs provided. Registration opens November 6 (session limited to 30 people).
The Psychoanalytic Lunch & Learn sessions seek to introduce psychoanalytic concepts to community practitioners, researchers, social work students, social workers and those in all helping professions. These sessions are sponsored by the Fairbanks Psychoanalytic Research Collaboration, a program at the Texas Institute for Child & Family Wellbeing.Find out more »

Join the Institute on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (IDVSA) for its CORSA Project’s Decision Case Train the Trainer: A New Technique for Trainers in the Field of Sexual Violence.
This three-day, FREE Train-the-Trainer Conference held at UT Austin will introduce and build instructional skills in the decision case study method. This method promotes dialogue and deep learning using case studies developed from dilemmas faced by Texas professionals in law enforcement, prosecution, and advocacy.
IDVSA will train a multi-disciplinary cohort of trainers from around the state from the fields of law enforcement, prosecution and advocacy with expertise in sexual assault cases to become trainers on this new methodology. IDVSA is currently recruiting individuals who can train system responders in their area of the state as part of their current position or regular work. Please contact Maggy McGiffert for more information at email@example.com
Each trainer will receive access to the six decision cases that IDVSA has compiled as well as the complementary training resources and curricula / facilitation guides. The training will involve learning about this innovative model and practicing facilitation skills with a national leader on this methodology, Dr. Terry Wolfer, from the University of South Carolina.
