    Through An/Other Lens:  Multicultural Perspectives

    A day in the Life of a Syrian Refugee

    Ingi Soliman, Ph.D.

    Sunday June 11, 2017

    2 – 4 pm



    Dr.  Ingi Soliman will be presenting a piece of writing that is a compilation of her work with several refugee families that have resettled in CT over the past two years. It is a narrative piece written in the voice of a Syrian refugee.  The presentation will engage the audience in entering the world of a Syrian refugee and her family and the struggles that are faced throughout the journey from war-torn Syria to the United States.  It will address issues pertaining to trauma, immigration, cultural awareness, and the current political climate in the United States. The presentation will be followed by a discussion of how best to understand and aid this population and other similar populations in their continued journey to adjusting to their new home while taking into consideration their complicated history.


     Dr Soliman is currently in full time private practice in White Plains, NY and Westport, CT where she sees individuals struggling with life transitions, including refugee status, immigration, parenthood, divorce and emerging adulthood, as well as eating disorders and anxiety disorders.  She serves as a consultant to several organizations regarding issues of immigration, acculturation, and acclimating refugees,  and  she is on the voluntary faculty of Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC.

    The Fairfield Region's 

    Psychoanalysis and Film series 

    will be discussing: 


    June 18

     11 AM - 1 PM 

    "Moonlight" is a look at three defining chapters in the life of Chiron, a young African American gay man growing up in poverty during the “war on drugs era”.  His epic journey to manhood is guided by the kindness, support and love of the community that helps raise him.  The film beautifully portrays the crushing loneliness and horrific violence of being a gay man in a culture where homosexuality is a weakness.


    Moonlight is a perfect film for a psychoanalytic audience. The film is available on VOD, DVD and Blu Ray.  

    Please view the film before the meeting.

    The meeting will take place at the home of 

    George Hagman:

     1912 Shippan Ave. Stamford, CT  06902 

    The Film Club is open to all CSPP members and you do not have to have attended earlier meetings to take part.

    RSVP: Susanne Weil
