Dr. Tim Hogan to Present “The Gift of Cultural Hurricanes”

Catholic clinical psychologist Tim Hogan will present “The Gift of Cultural Hurricanes: How to Build New Bridges that Transform Catholic Families,” on Saturday, August 6, from 10:00am – 1:00pm in the Queen of Saints Room at the Diocese of Bridgeport Catholic Center, 238 Jewett Avenue, Bridgeport.

This event is free and lunch is included. Please register by Wednesday, August 3, so that proper arrangements can be made.

Parents, clergy, catechetical leaders and catechists, school administrators, school faculties and family life ministers are invited to join RCL BENZIGER Religion Publishing and the Office of Faith Formation in welcoming Dr. Hogan.

Dr. Hogan will explore the radical cultural changes that are crashing into the family life. Parents are living in a cultural hurricane that is transforming the landscape of social connections and family life. Once-strong bridges of human connection have been washed away, leaving parents feeling lost and spiritually hungry to find new avenues to get and stay connected.

Participants will be guided, encouraged and supported in their efforts to construct creative strategies to effectively confront these changes head on. Emphasis will be placed on cultivating meaningful relationships and passing on the treasure of a passionate life of faith.

Dr. Tim Hogan is a Catholic clinical psychologist and certified Imago Relationship Therapist who directs the Grace Counseling Center in Detroit.  He consults and presents workshops across the country, and contributed to the RCL Benziger Family Life series, which sponsors him for this event. He holds degrees from the University of Notre Dame and Fuller Graduate School of Psychology in Pasadena California.

He blogs at DrTimHogan.com/my-blog, and lives with his wife and three children in Plymouth, Michigan.
