Topic: The Phenomenon of the Black Panther: A Convergence of Pop Culture and OD
When you see a popular music video or a scene from a meaningful movie, can you visualize it as material for working with your clients? Join us for an interactive session looking through the lens of the movie Black Panther. We will learn how the film illustrates themes, lessons and benefits of incorporating pop-culture as a relevant intervention tool. Come join us to reflect and discuss innovative ways to better engage and understand clients, enhance interventions, and deepen consulting skills. Participants will be introduced to the Parker Thompson-Mack Pop- Culture Model of Change. Black Panther movie clips will be shown.
Presenters: Karen Mack, MSOD, ACC

Changes: We are changing the way we run the Coaching Community of Practice. Those who receive notice they are on the attendance list will pay $5.00 by Venmo to reserve their place. We will send instructions regarding using Venmo when you receive notice you are on the attendance list. We will not be offering refunds. We ask that cancellations be at least 48 hours in advance so we can contact those on the waiting list and give them sufficient notice to attend. If necessary, last minute cancellations are appreciated so we can do the appropriate room set-up.
In order to balance who attends we delay notifying those on the attendance list for up to a week to include those who have not attended recently. We also encourage new members to attend. We apologize if you do not get on the attendance list each month and hope you understand that we want to include more members, not only those who responded quickly. We limit our sessions to 30 attendees as we sit in a circle to encourage full participation. From now on those who are 'no-shows' or last minute cancellations will be placed on the waiting list for future meetings until we have openings. RSVP only if you want to attend, no need to send 'regrets.'
Please let us know if you are a new member or have not attended the last three or more sessions. We are very grateful for your interest and support.
We need a few volunteers to help set up the room. Please let me know if you can assist us at 6:00.
You will receive notification within the next seven days about whether you are on the list to attend or on the waiting list. Also, please include the phone number where you can be reached if we need to contact you the day of the meeting. Be sure to check your email for any updates if the weather is challenging or for any other changes that evening.
