Regina Boarman, Ph.D., Clarke College chair and assistant professor of sociology/social work, will present the faculty lecture in this year’s Clarke College Mackin-Mailander Lecture Series on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in Jansen Music Hall on the Clarke campus. Boarman’s lecture is titled “Vulnerable Moments: Understanding Ourselves, Experiencing the Sacred.” Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.
Boarman’s lecture will examine how vulnerability becomes a source of empowerment. She says the vulnerable moments in our lives have the potential to become a pathway to understanding ourselves, being with others, and experiencing the sacred in our lives.
Boarman holds a master’s in social work from Loyola College and her Ph.D. in social work from the College of Chicago. She was a social worker in Chicago for over 20 years. Her experience includes clinical work in in-patient and out-patient services at Rush Presbyterian, St. Luke’s Medical Center, Michael Reese Hospital and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago where she was director of social work. In addition to her work as a medical social worker, Boarman maintained a private practice in Chicago, working with women who were experiencing transitions in their lives.
