Ackerman Alumnae/i Association Presents Case Consultations

An expectant mother suffering from depression and isolation and a mother and child traumatized by violence were the focus of the two cases presented at the Ackerman Alumnae/i Association’s Case Consultations on Friday, January 23rd. Case Consultations, in which alumni present cases to a panel of Ackerman faculty, is one of the Alumnae/i Association’s most popular annual events. This year’s panel (pictured above from left to right) included Fiona True, LMSW, Dee Watts-Jones, PhD, and Mary Kim Brewster, PhD, who shared their insights and fielded questions from the presenters and an audience of 25 alumnae/i, students and guests.

The next Alumnae/i Association meeting is on Friday, March 6, when Richard Johnson, PhD, LCSW, will present Family Therapy with One Person: Coaching Individual Clients Toward Change in Family Relationships. Admission to Alumnae/i Association events is free for members who have paid their $50 annual dues. Admission is $10 per event for students and externs and $25 per event for other guests. Registration is available online at the Ackerman website.
