Support the EBF in 2018
As the EBF ends another year of work advancing Becker’s theories and their applications to our modern lives, we ask you to support our efforts with a generous donation. Now, more than ever, it is important to contribute resources towards refining and communicating our understanding of human motivation and behavior in an increasingly interconnected yet conflict-ridden world.
Death Salon 2017
After several years “on tour,” Death Salon finally came to Seattle this past September. The University of Washington School of Social Work hosted the two-day sold-out event and the EBF joined as a co-sponsor. Executive Director Deborah Jacobs and Communications Manager Christa Masson attended the event and facilitated lunch discussion groups for attendees.
Becker and the Holidays
We ask ourselves, what’s really the point? Even the best of families have conflicts, fights, and jostlings in the rankings for favorites, and can never measure up really to the “Holy Family” of our cultural mythology, gathered around the Thanksgiving/Christmas table of the Norman Rockwell calendar on the wall.
