The Naomi Chernoff Creativity Conference - Inner Theaters/Outer Screens: Film as Process, Representation and Reflection
The Naomi Chernoff Creativity conference is aimed at continuing the dialouge that began at our first conference in May 2007; a dialogue aimed at re-energizing and supporting the inner intelligence of mental health practitioners of all disciplines, medical and non-medical. The daylong seminar will develop the ground for more open and in-depth conversations about the humanistic and artisitic components of psychotherapy. This year we will specifically focus on how film reality and inner experience, how they are reflected into each other and their relation to the ways humans perceive themselves and others. These are abstract concepts but have a direct influence on the perception of disruption of health as well as restoration of health.
