Psychoanalytic Lunch & Learn: Mentalization and reflective parenting

September 19 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Sue Fairbanks Psychoanalytic Research Collaboration presents

TINA ADKINS, PHD
mentalization and reflective parenting

Mentalization develops within the context of a secure attachment relationship and is the skill of being able to see yourself from the outside and others from the inside.  This session will examine this ability in more detail, including how it relates to healthy parenting and positive child outcomes.

A light lunch will be served. Free CEUs provided. Registration opens August 21 (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.

Fairbanks Lecture: Elizabeth Kita

October 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Sue Fairbanks Lecture in Psychoanalytic Knowledge presents

ELIZABETH Kita, PhD
“Everyone hates me now, but where were they when I needed them?”: A psychodynamic look at trauma, violence, and mass incarceration.

Please RSVP to ssw-profdev@utlists.utexas.edu

Elizabeth Kita received her PhD in clinical social work from Smith College’s School of Social Work in 2012, after many years of clinical practice in a variety of settings: with children and families in their homes, a community outpatient clinic, a state prison, the department of parole, a psychodynamic psychotherapy clinic, and in private practice. She discovered psychodynamic theory along the way, and found it to be the most humanizing lens through which to understand people and their problems.

In addition to practicing as a clinical social worker, Kita is a lecturer at UC Berkeley, and provides clinical supervision to licensed and unlicensed clinicians. She also coordinates a peer-driven support program for formerly incarcerated “lifers.”
