SPECIAL NOTE RE: FORMAT - this seminar will be offered either as an in-person or telephone seminar. Nancy has taught telephone seminars for many years and they work out very well. She has a conference call line you call into (so you will need unlimited long-distance service if you are outside area code 303). This will be offered as a phone seminar to our out-of-state colleagues, but local participants may also choose to have a phone seminar, instead of coming to Nancy's office in Lone Tree. She is fine with either, but the advantage of the phone is that you don't spend time commuting. We will wait to see who responds and what the preferences are before making the final arrangements - and then we will let you know.

Using the Emmy-nominated HBO series aired in early 2008, we will meet weekly for five
weeks to discuss the 43 sessions of therapy conducted by Dr. Paul Weston with three
individuals and one couple, in addition to his own therapy. The format will be that of a book
club; each of us will watch a segment of the series on our own, then come together to wonder
about and consider the meanings and motivations of therapists and clients and their actions.
We will have an opportunity to hear how psychoanalysts react to what we see. Each week a
different analyst will join the class so that over the five weeks, we will hear many different
understandings of waht is happening with the characters. In this way, we hope to enhance
our thinking about what motivates people and how to respond as therapists in ways that
advance well-being. [ The DVDs of the series will be released on September 9 (Purchase
price: $60). Some shows can currently be seen on HBO/On Demand. You can get them
from Amazon.com. You can rent them from Block Buster - but you might want to reserve
them ahead of time. You can put them on your Netflix queue, they can be purchased or
rented.] Participants are responsible for purchasing or renting their own DVDs.
