The clinical case review group will meet quarterly to discuss clinical issues raised by cases from works of fiction and non-fiction. Participants will be asked to read the assigned book in advance and to come prepared to respond to the case questions, but are welcomed to fully participate in the group even if they haven't had time. Participants are also encouraged to raise additional questions and clinical strategies.
