Postgraduate seminars, begun in 1979, developed from the interest of postgraduate trainees in continuing their connection with the Center in a different format than the formal training programs.
The seminars serve as a stimulus and forum for those interested in the serious pursuit of natural systems ideas and in the systematic study of the human family. People with quite diverse interests but with the common goal of developing and extending family systems ideas participate. People also use the seminars as a way to move ideas toward publication. All who have completed three or more years in one of the Postgraduate Training Programs are eligible to apply.
The seminars are scheduled in conjunction with the Thursday Professional Lectures and the Clinical Conference Series. Participants attend the Clinical Conference on Friday (tuition for the seminars includes admission to the Clinical Conference that month). The seminars meet either on the Wednesday before or the Saturday or Sunday after the clinical conference.
