George Makari’s second book, Soul Machine: The Invention of the Modern Mind, is a brilliant and comprehensive history of the creation of the modern Western mind.  His first-ever appearance at White is an opportunity to hear him talk about the concepts he evolved in it, taking us back to the origins of modernity, a time when a crisis in religious authority and the scientific revolution led to search questions about the nature of human inner life.

Leadership, Learning & Change

  • The Cenacle

Leadership, Learning and Change is a training conference being offered at the Cenacle in Chicago April 27-29, 2015, just before the AKRI Dialogues.  

The cost of the conference is extremely low ($500 covers room and board at the Cenacle as well as the conference itself), so it is a great low-cost opportunity for students and others who are interested in group dynamics work but who can’t afford the expense that other such conferences entail.

Here are links to the conference brochure and registration form:

LEADERSHIP, LEARNING, AND CHANGE: WHO’S IN CHARGE? WHY LISTEN TO EACH OTHER?

Discovering What Counts in Consultation: Exploring Authority and Identity

The program will open a dialogue about our experiences in consulting roles.  Our focus is on the relationship between the process of consultation and issues of authority & identity.

Presenters will offer short vignettes drawn from their experience during specific consultations, focusing on the intersection of authority & identity.  Paradoxical, intentional and unexpected directions resulting from these consultations will be explored.  What parts of our identity were revealed?  What parts were kept covered? What roles do the clients play in these situations, and how is their authority embedded into the choices we make as consultants?  And more…

The program will be participatory: Presenters will share their experiences Discovering What Counts in Consultation. Participants are encouraged to bring brief personal examples that raise questions or have generated hypotheses about the intersection between authority and identity.  The program will look at areas of overlap, lessons learned, questions about how these concepts relate and “best practices.”  

PRESENTERS:
Mary McRae, Ed.D
Robert C. Whitehouse, MA

PROGRAM CHAIR:
Howard A. Friedman, Ph.D
