The SPSI Art Salon Committee presents a screening of the film, Lars and the Real Girl. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Rebecca Meredith, MA, and Liz Ulrich, LICSW, who will explore the concepts of grief and sadness, and how we replace our lost objects, when mourning is incomplete. Sue Radant, PhD, will moderate the discussion. 

This film is presented in conjunction with the Continuing Education event, Guys and Dolls: Intimacy in Technological Era, by Danielle Knafo, Ph.D. on October 18th and 19th.  (You may register for the CE event by clicking the link above.)

This event is free, but we encourage you to make a donation to SPSI to support future programming. Thank you for your support!
