Within the enormous complexity of human experience, the reflex to connectedness rescues the person from fragmentation. Dr. Polster will portray connectedness along four dimensions: 1) person to person, enhancing relational experience and belonging; 2) moment to moment, restoring continuity and fluidity; 3) event to event, recovering life's storyline; 4) Characteristic to characteristic, integrating the self.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the central role of connectedness in human existence.
  2. To describe the varied facets of connectedness, stretching the concept beyond its key implications for personal relationships and belonging.
