Online Office Hours - 2017-05-25

Description:

Are your students not asking enough questions in class? Are there long lines, or no lines, outside your office every week? If so, consider moving some of your office hours online! Engagingstudents via IRC, an anonymous text-based interface, enhances the ability of busy, working students, EAL students, shy students or students with disabilities to access professor feedback at their ownpace. This technique is popular with students and has led to dramatic increases in retention and understanding of material covered. The workshop will introduce participants to IRC and its courseapplications, and will also briefly review the use of Skype for group project feedback.

Description:

THE WEDDING PLAN

Director: Rama Burshtein; Israel, 2016, 110 min, Hebrew with subtitles

At 32, Michal (Noa Kooler) is finally looking forward to the comfort and security of marriage, when she is blindsided by her fiancé’s decision to call off the wedding withonly a month’s notice. Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to put her trust in fate and continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date.

She enlists the help of two different matchmakers, goes on a series of disastrous blind dates and finds an unexpected connection with a charming but utterly unsuitable popstar – all while dismissing pleas by concerned friends and family members that she reconsider her risky plan. As the day of the ceremony grows closer and no suitor appears, Michal puts everything onthe line to find happiness.

MDMA-assisted Psychotherapy for PTSD: Research and Possibilities - 2017-05-26

Description:After a 50 year hiatus, psychedelic medicines are being studied again for possible uses in psychotherapy of such conditions as PTSD, end-of-life anxiety and addictions. A Vancouver team waspart of a multisite Phase 2 research study into MDMA (street name: “ecstasy”)-assisted psychotherapy of PTSD. It was completed last year. The experience of participating in this study and resultsfrom Canadian and US research will be presented. About the Speaker Dr. Ingrid Pacey comes from a Lithuanian family which migrated to Australia in 1949. She came to Canada in 1967 after completing medical school at the University of New South Wales, Sydney,Australia. She received her psychiatric training at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, graduating in 1972. While in medical school, she witnessed LSD psychotherapy in a psychiatricsetting as part of her training. Her private practice in Vancouver became focused on psychotherapy for trauma survivors, particularly women who had been sexually abused as children. From 1987 - 1990,she trained with Dr. Stanislav and Christina Grof in Holotropic Breathwork. Over the next 14 years, she went on to pioneer the use of Holotropic Breathwork with trauma survivors, observing thespecial needs of people with PTSD when working in Holotropic Breathwork groups. Through this work she came to see the value of working with nonordinary states of consciousness for people sufferingfrom PTSD. Dr. Pacey continues to practice psychiatry in Vancouver, and she has lectured in Canada and the US.
