If any California therapists are cruising through this forum....Judy Wyatt and I will be presenting an afternoon seminar entitled "Work is Hell: How Family Therapists Can Help Clients Surivive Abusive Work in the Late Nineties." Dealing with shame-bound work systems is what it will be all about. See you at the San Francisco Airport Marriot, 2:00 pm on May 2! The spirit of Tomkins will be there!
You may also be interested to know that the National Organization for Women, NOW, has just initiated a Women-Friendly Workplace Campaign to combat abusive (shaming) work situations. The dial-in number is 202-331-0066 extension 705...ask for Beth Corbin field coordinator for the project. In San Francisco, call Stacey Karp, 415-861-8880. Judy and I hope we can be involved in this exciting project too. You can e-mail us for more information or just to express your interest.
I've been chin deep in volume one of Tomkins Affect, Imagery and Consciousness....do you think I can make it through all four volumes by May 2? (Smile).
