Annie Rogers - A Public Forum
Join us for a public forum with Annie Rogers
Tony would like to invite you to an upcoming public forum by Annie Rogers. Tony recently profiled Annie’s book The Unsayable on the Marian Finucane Show which you can listen to here. Annie has now kindly agreed to give a public lecture.
“Allowing Young People to Say the Unsayable”, Annie Rogers will profile the challenges that young people (12-25) face in their journey to adulthood. She will draw on her experience working with young people who struggle to come to terms with experiences that were traumatic. Tony will respond to Annie’s remarks and facilitate an audience Q&A.
Annie G. Rogers, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychoanalysis and Clinical Psychology at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. She is the Dean of the School of Critical Social Inquiry and professor of clinical psychology. Annie received her B.A. from Webster College and her Ph.D. from Washington University. She spent fifteen years teaching and doing research at Harvard University.
Annie has conducted studies on a range of topics including the psychological development of girls; ego and moral development in both genders; and the ways trauma and its repetition shapes development for girls. She is the author of A Shining Affliction (Penguin Viking, 1995), and The Unsayable: The Hidden Language of Trauma (Random House, 2006), as well as academic articles, memoir, short fiction and poetry.
