Oberto Commons -- Sinegal 200 (the new Engineering building)
This event is open to faculty, staff, undergrad, and graduate students.
Please join us for this creative, interdisciplinary and interactive workshop with Dr. Jennifer Schulz, PhD, American Literature and MA, Clinical Psychology. Dr. Schulz will explore how we navigate fear of catastrophic change while also fostering a sense of well-being in our everyday, and the opportunities that this reality affords us to create more existentially-grounded relationships with our clients.
This question is one that therapists have faced with clients long before the COVID-19 pandemic, as we directly encounter the consequences of climate change, systemic discrimination and violence against minoritized groups, economic inequality, and increasingly wide-spread viral threats. Indeed, the reality of a “catastrophic era” (in which we have been living for generations) has in recent years come to be on full display. In this workshop we will explore the opportunities that this reality affords us to create more existentially-grounded relationships with our clients.
More specifically, in the face of direct and immediate threats to our physical, psychological, social, and emotional well-being, diving into a shared exploration of loss, fear, and displacement invites us to show up for our clients increasingly in our full humanness, replete with contradiction and ambiguity but also with authentic curiosity. This stance of not-knowing, as opposed to claiming to know and hence offering prescriptive tools, may help mitigate our own anxiety as clinicians. It may also lend itself to new cognitive, emotional, and imaginative avenues for self-realization and connection with and for our clients, which are means to the experience of well-being.
Dr. Schulz comes to clinical work through a career as a literature professor and writer, and thus draws from literary texts and creative practices, in addition to phenomenological theories of well-being, to inform her encounters with her clients. In this workshop, Dr. Schulz will invite you in to some of these creative practices. In other words, this will be an interactive experience; so while specific outcomes cannot be predicted beforehand, this is some of what you can expect to explore together:
This workshop will provide 2 continuing education credit hours to those who are interested.

Dr. Hook explores “Fanon and Phenomenology and The Topic of Racial Ontologizing Through the Body.” Sponsored by the Psychology and Philosophy Departments.
Watch Dr. Hook's recorded presentation here!
Derek Hook is a scholar and a practitioner of psychoanalysis with expertise in the areas of Lacanian psychoanalysis, post-colonial theory (the work of Frantz Fanon in particular), the psychology of racism and critical social psychology. Current projects include the development of two manuscripts to be published by Routledge's Psychology Press, the first, with Sheldon George, is titled Lacan and Race; the second, with Leswin Laubscher and Miraj Desai, is entitled Fanon, Phenomenology and Psychology. His applied (socio-political) research tends to focus on the various psychical modalities of racism, often in the contexts of American and South African culture. He is particularly interested in a psychoanalytic tracing of the various affective/psychical dimensions of race and racism, as exemplified in recent publications focusing on topics such as: white anxiety, petrified life, the temporality of racism in Fanon, death-bound subjectivity and Fanon's zone of non-being, the death-drive in culture, and racist and racializing embodiment.
In addition to his Duquesne University appointment, Derek is an Extraordinary Professor of Psychology at the University of Pretoria and South Africa. He teaches an annual summer class on Lacanian Psychoanalysis in the Department of Psychosocial Studies, Birkbeck College at the University of London. He was the recipient of International Social Research Foundation grant in 2015. He has twice been awarded a Loogman Grant from the Center for African Studies at Duquesne University (for research on the anti-apartheid Africanist intellectual and political leader Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe), and he received the McAnulty College Award for excellence in research in 2016.
