Community Lecture Series

Open to all mental health professionals.

Lunch, learn, and refresh your practice. We offer 10 free lectures each year.

The Brookline Center welcomes all mental health professionals who work in the Brookline schools or community to join our staff for our community lectures. Experienced therapists and specialists present a wide variety of clinically relevant topics. During these lunchtime sessions, clinicians learn from experts in the field, while making connections with colleagues. We provide drinks and snacks.

Social workers may purchase continuing education units (CEUs); attendance for at least four of five lectures in a semester is required to receive them. Please indicate your interest in CEUs when registering.

Registration appreciated but not required

To sign up, email Jeff Brand, PsyD, or call at (617) 277-8107. Drop-ins also welcome!
