Dr. Salvador Treviño, Core Faculty and Director of Practicum in the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program at Antioch University Santa Barbara, was the keynote speaker at The Lyceum: Mental Health Awards and Education Luncheon presented by the Community Counseling Center on Friday, October 9 in Pismo Beach.
Dr. Treviño’s keynote speech focused on “Ancestral Knowledge in Dreams,” and he also led a bonus Continuing Education Workshop on “Latino Immigration, Cultural Trauma, and Cultural Complex.”
“Dreams not only have a personal domain but a transpersonal realm that moves away from the private world of the dreamer and into the larger encompassing field of culture and history,” Dr. Treviño said. “Knowledge of these realms is constructed by talking, listening, and reflecting on dream images that have captured the social, cultural, and historical experiences of a community of people.”
The event also included the presentation of a Community Counseling Center scholarship to Betty Purify, a student in the AUSB PsyD program.
AUSB’s PsyD program prepares students for multiple roles in the field of psychology while promoting self reflection, clinical and research skills, and the development of theoretical knowledge required for a successful career. Learn more at www.antiochsb.edu/psyd.
