About Making Connections

MAKING CONNECTIONS is a forum in which TPI members can get to know one another. The forum is designed for clinicians at all levels of experience and practice. Between October and June, Making Connections meets on the first Friday of each month, unless otherwise noted. Members and their guests gather at the Institute from 3:45pm – 6:00pm to discuss a topic that relates to the experience of being a therapist. 

At each Making Connections gathering, there is a presentation and time for discussion. The presentations, and ensuing dialogues, often focus on the rich intersection between our professional and personal selves, and how this cross-fertilization both impacts and informs the work we do. One of the main goals of Making Connections is to provide an open and informal discussion of clinical issues and dilemmas not typically discussed in other venues. There also is time to socialize, network, and cultivate collegial affiliation.

Making Connections is a way to give colleagues an introduction to TPI in an intimate professional setting, and guests are welcome.

Present ideas—formed or unformed—that intrigue, puzzle, or surprise you. Brainstorm, dialogue, and stimulate thought while building community. Network and participate in small-group discussions and experiential process.
