Movies and Meaning Group "Oh My God"-December 17

The Thursday, December 17 movie is Oh My God directed by Peter Rodger who spent three years traveling to 23 different countries asking the question, "What is God?" I know the trailer poses the question, "Did God create man or did man create God?" Perfect question for our discussion. It poses a good query, "Is the Bible God's way of reaching out to us or our way of reaching out to God?" Rodger interviews many celebrities including Hugh Jackman, Seal, Baz Lurhmann, and Ringo Starr. See a fuller description and trailer at http://www.fandango.com/ohmygod_126633/movieoverview.

Community Fundraising Auction for Marysville School PTA 
set for January 7, 2010

On January 7, a group of local school fundraising professionals will host a benefit auction and dinner at the Ambridge Events Center (1333 NE MLK Blvd.) to raise money for the Marysville School PTA. Local favorites Boka Marimba will perform their high-energy African-style dance music, and benefit auctioneer Kelly Russell will conduct the live auction.

In the aftermath of the November 11 fire that consumed the Marysville School in SE Portland, many businesses and community organizations donated clothing, backpacks and school supplies to help the community make a smooth transition to a temporary new home in the Rose City Park school building.

Trainings

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Psychosis and Trauma training at PSU

Cognitive Therapy for Psychosis: An Evidence-Based Psychological Approach for Delusions, Hallucinations, and Paranoia Fr Jan 8 8:30-4 pm with Ron Unger, MSW The first day of this two-part series focuses on cognitive therapy for psychosis as an evidence-based approach that can help people reduce problems associated with experiences such as delusions, voices, and paranoia. Learn how to work collaboratively with clients with psychosis, "explore the evidence," rather than impose beliefs, and use strategies that are often surprisingly similar to cognitive methods for reducing depression and anxiety. Develop options for clients so they are no longer forced to rely entirely on the often limited effectiveness of medications for symptom reduction.
