Two Way: Learning from each other

A webinar series

Each Tuesday, 13 October to 17 November 2020

8:00 – 9:30pm AEST

The Sydney Institute for Psychoanalysis invites you to join us as we bring together First Nations’ thinkers with psychoanalysts and psychotherapists in a series of six webinars in the spirit of Two Way – working together and learning from each other.

All proceeds profits to CASSE’s Shields for Living, Tools for Life, a dual cultural and therapeutic program, based in the Alice Springs region for ‘at-risk’ youth, providing an alternative to detention and reducing the likelihood of offending or reoffending.
