The fourth annual Summer Institute in the Human Services will be held July 8-16 at the University of Utah. Sponsored by the Graduate School of Social Work Continuing Education Program, the institute will offer 20 sessions on a variety of topics.
Dr. Ernest L. Rossi, a Jungian analyst, will be the featured speaker. He will discuss new techniques and theories in psychobiology, the study of how mind and body work together in physical and emotional healing.Rossi is the author of a dozen books on psychotherapy, co-author of several books on therapeutic hypnosis and editor of a semiannual publication that reviews Jungian theory.
Many of the sessions are geared to professionals, while those of interest to the general public include discussion of adult children of alcoholics and adults molested as children, misbehaving adolescents, adoption issues, psychobiology, and hypnosis.
Other clinical offerings are gay and lesbian issues, family and group therapy, child sexual abuse, depression, psychotropic medication, borderline and narcissistic patients, and personnel management.
More than 800 participants from 47 Utah communities and eleven states took part in last summer's institute, says Naomi Silverstone, coordinator and adjunct assistant professor.
