Description: 
Society is sickening! Panelists will explore how neo-liberalism,capitalism's most recent incarnation,shapes personal and group development and,how we are organizing alternatives. We will discuss contemporary educational institutions, psychotherapeutic theories,practices and Big Pharma;bullying,and the push to conform. We will describe the "lost connections" to self and others, as well as the "neo-liberal personality"-the ultimate "cool" capitalist. We will end with a discussion of "radical hope" and the need for a new imaginary that advances a new concept of selfhood within the construct of connection to others and groups.
