2018-2019 Series


Beginning in September, the 2018-2019 Master Speaker Series will focus on The Use of the Object, and will feature live presentations by IPI faculty and guest presenters, discussion, case presentations, and advance readings distributed before each session. The course meets one Friday per month for 9 months (September-May). IPI SLC offers two options for attending the Master Speaker videoconferences. First, participants can attend the videoconference with other attendees on the Westminster College campus. These sessions meet for three hours: a two hour lecture and case presentation (via videoconference) with the visiting speaker, and a one hour large group discussion, which offers a chance to integrate theoretical and clinical ideas with group members' personal and clinical experience. To ensure a seat and to receive readings, be sure to register in advance. 

The second option is to participate only in the two-hour videoconference from your home computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. For this option, participants can join the videoconference easily by downloading a free program and clicking on a simple link provided for each session. Contact IPI's national office at info@theipi.org for further information on participating online.

For both options, participants may register for single sessions, or for the full series of nine.
