Norma Writes for Selvedge Latin Issue #89
What is a Study Tour: Our programs are designed as learning experiences, and as such we talk with weavers about how and why they create, what is meaningful to them in their designs, the ancient history of patterning and design, use of color, tradition and innovation, values and cultural continuity, and the social context within which they work. First and foremost, we are educators. Norma worked in top US universities for over 35 years and Eric founded the education department at Oaxaca’s textile museum. Our interest is in creating connection and artisan economic development.

Oaxaca Lending Library Talk: Why Living Together is Complicated
Biological Evolution vs. Intimate Relationship: How We Are Wired & Why That Makes Living Together Complicated is the subject of a talk by Stephen Hawthorne, LCSW, scheduled for Thursday, June 23 at 5 PM at the Oaxaca Lending Library, Pino Suarez #519, Centro Historico, Oaxaca. The cost is 50 pesos (less than $5 USD).
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Stephen Hawthorne has been on the faculty of Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, since 1977. There he created the Department of Psychiatry’s first family therapy training program, where psychiatry residents and psychology interns receive coaching and education from faculty as they work with patients in a clinical setting.
Mr. Hawthorne is in private practice in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where he works with couples to improve their relationships. Hawthorne developed ABC Therapy that combines affective, behavioral and cognitive therapy models. This combined approach has the most promising outcomes for relationship improvement.
