The Jane Roiter Sunday Morning Seminars is the Society’s longest running program. The Seminars are named after and dedicated to the memory of Jane Roiter who was President of the Society and for many years chaired the Sunday Morning Seminar Planning Committee. Over the years the presenters at the Seminars have been among the most distinguished and talented clinicians in the Chicagoland area. In recent years presenters have included Irwin Hoffman, Frank Summers, Froma Walsh, Katherine Tyson, Joseph Palombo, Jill Gardner, Hylene Dublin, Barbara Burger and Mathew Selekman. The Seminars meet four times from October through March for 3 hours on Sunday mornings, in a comfortable classroom at the Northbrook office of The Jewish Child and Family Services.
The Seminars provide participants wonderful opportunities to improve their clinical skills, gain cutting edge knowledge of contemporary practice theories, to socialize and network with friends and colleagues and to accumulate CEUS for LCSW license renewal. A highlight of each Seminar, is a delectable and scrumptious continental breakfast served by the Seminar Planning Committee. The Committee members include: Karuna Bahadur, Carol Crain, Margaret Grau, Mary Ann Jung (Co-chair), Eric Ornstein (Chair) and Jane Pinsoff. Members pay a reduced fee and low cost series subscriptions are available. Look for information about speakers for the next round of Seminars on this Website, on Facebook and LinkedIn. A brochure describing the Seminars will be widely distributed by mail in the fall. The Committee would love to hear from Members about your ideas for future seminar presenters and topics. Contact Us
