Educational Programs 2024-2025
Depth and Vitality
in Intrapsychic, Interpersonal and Social Realms

HPS is inviting potential speakers and study group facilitators to submit proposals for online programs in 2024-2025. The proposed presentations and study groups should address some aspect of our annual program theme, Depth and Vitality in Intrapsychic, Interpersonal and Social Realms. The following program formats are possible:

  • Thursday evening lectures (45 minutes - 1 hour, followed by Q&A)
  • Reading and study groups (usually 3 – 6 sessions, 1.5 hours each, scheduled in the evening)
  • Book discussions with authors (1 to 1.5 hours on relevant books published during the last 2 years)
  • Film discussions (1 to 1.5 hours)

Proposals should state the preferred program format, a few sentences about the content, and the presenter’s name and qualifications. Speakers and study group facilitators will receive a small honorarium for their presentations. Proposals are due December 15, 2023 and should be sent by email to

Speakers and facilitators will be notified in January 2024 whether or not their proposed program has been accepted. If accepted, speakers and facilitators will need to submit required information, including the program title, a brief program description, 3 learning objectives for each 1.5 hours of programming, 3 references from the professional literature, a syllabus/reading list for study groups, a CV, and a brief professional bio focusing primarily on the speaker/facilitator’s qualifications to present a program on the proposed topic. The required information must be submitted in our online portal by April 1, 2024 (no fooling!) or the program will be cancelled. Questions about proposals may be sent to JoAnn Ponder, PhD, HPS Program Chair at
