Psychotherapy is not what you see on television or hear on the radio. How does psychotherapy provide unique understanding and solutions for personal problems? This talk uses actual (disguised) case material to demonstrate how a psychotherapist analyzes clues to personal problems and discusses them in plain language. He will also discuss protection of privacy, options for confidential psychotherapy, and psychiatric labels.
Dr. Shulman’s nonprofit organization, Volunteers in Psychotherapy, allows anyone to earn no-fee private psychotherapy, in exchange for volunteer work, done privately and independently, at the charity, nonprofit or government agency of the person’s choice. VIP has been providing therapy in greater Hartford for over 18 years, with primarily licensed clinical psychologists through their private offices. For more info: www.CTVIP.org, or Facebook.

During the 19th century, men from over 30 New England communities sailed the seas in pursuit of whales, leaving their families behind for up to 5 years at a time. Meanwhile, new philosophies encouraging companionate marriages became popular in New England society. The combination of historical phenomena meant men and women in these whaling communities faced the daunting prospect of spending most of their lives apart. That is until the 1840s. A small group of married couples defied social and industrial tradition by going to sea together aboard whaleships. Focus is on a remarkable couple— Captain John and Elizabeth Marble of Fall River, Massachusetts, using letters & journals to tell a story of love, life, & loss at sea.
Amanda Goodheart Parks has been studying gender and marriage in the New England whaling industry for more than a decade. Parks is pursuing her Ph.D. at UMass. Amherst while serving as Director of Education at the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, CT.
