Annual Dinner: Why Gossip Matters: Social, Organizational, Psychological and Psychotherapeutic Dynamics
Presented by Jay Einhorn, PhD, LCPC
Tuesday, May 8, 2018
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Gusto Ristorante Italiano
1834 Glenview Road
Gossip is a basic part of human relationships, and it's not all bad. Gossip means talking about someone who is not present in ways that evaluate their behavior and character. It is so fundamental that it has been seen as the wellspring of human language, taking the place of "grooming" in animal relationships. We will explore the meaning and dynamics of gossip in our relationships, our organizations (where sociologists have studied its role in communicating key information), in psychotherapy (where much of the conversation is about others who are not present), and in our own understanding of, and adaptation to, self and world. Don't miss it, or we might be talking about YOU!
