Tuesday, August 28, 2012 at 3:00pm Pacific Time (6pm Eastern Time).

Once you do you will be on the phone with a group of interesting liked minded GAINS members – just say your name so we can welcome you.

After introductions, Dr. Eppel will speak for a while and then open it up to questions and discussion. If it is like our past calls, we will have a relaxed fascinating discussion.

Only one request – please call from a quiet place so we can keep background noise to a minimum.

Alan Eppel is a GAINS member and has been a practicing psychiatrist over the past thirty years. He is currently director of Community Psychiatric Services at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Hamilton, Ontario, and an associate clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario.

To read about his current thinking here is a link to his blog:The Eppel Intelligence Report on Attachment and Loss http://eppelreport.blogspot.com

Here is a link to his bio and his book: Sweet Sorrow: Love, Loss and Attachment In Human Life http://www.amazon.com/Alan-Eppel/e/B002J8E1FG

Quoting from the Amazon book description: “In this volume the author proposes that it is the interplay of love and loss that lies at the epicenter of the human story. Support for this proposal is taken from neuroscience, art and psychoanalysis. It will also introduce the reader to important ideas and findings from Attachment Theory. An exploration of the relationship between love and loss can lead us to some understanding of the meaning of our lives. It shows how love and loss are inextricably bound at the center of human experience, and form the essential dynamic of the human struggle.”

We really hope you can join us, but if you can’t we will be recording the call. We will send out the details later so you may listen another time.

“See” you Tuesday August 28 3:00 Pacific Time,
