We are bombarded with more information than our bodies and minds can process, and are always in need of letting things go. Much of this discarding process takes place automatically – outside of our awareness. But sometimes, that process needs the help of language, relationship, and the functions of our waking consciousness to loosen the grip of ideas that, taken literally, might even kill us. When we form ideas for ending our lives, the struggle not to literalize those ideas can become the catalyst for fundamental transformations of perspective and personality. Join Dr. Jacinda Tucker for this exploration of the deeper dynamics of suicidal ideation. In addition to learning to spot the signs of suicidal ideation in those that we love and care for, we’ll discuss how the autonomous psyche generates life-changing messages, and hides them in plain sight. Discover how to find and work with those messages, and the power unleashed when we make metaphors of even our darkest moments.

This program is being offered IN-PERSON only. Masks are optional while in the building, but encouraged (especially for students who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19).
