This Speaker Series would invite distinguished members of the psychology profession to AUNE and bring together alumni, students, and faculty for a presentation and discussion. The program will enhance the learning experience of current students while informing and inspiring alumni and faculty who are active in the field. The series is named for Professor and Distinguished Senior Scholar Roger Peterson, former department chair, honoring his countless contributions to the field of psychology and the thousands of people whose lives he has touched throughout his long career.
On April 17, 2015, as part of Antioch’s 50th anniversary celebration, the Department hosted its first Distinguished Speaker Series event. Kenneth J. Gergen, PhD, presented Losing Our Minds and Saving the World.
On October 3, 2016, Jeremy Safran, PhD, presented Mindfulness, Enactment, and Affect Regulation. Dr. Safran , Professor of Psychology at the New School for Social Research in New York City, is the author of numerous books on psychotherapy, including Negotiating the Therapeutic Alliance: A Relational Treatment Guide with co-author Chris Muran.
