Weekend Conference, November 18-20, 2016

Rockville Hilton Hotel, 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852

Latin American Psychoanalysis includes an array of evocative ideas and a new theoretical synthesis. Immigration from Europe to Latin America has contributed to Latin American thinking being influenced by a mixture of French, British and other theories and practices. This has created a unique understanding of culture and views on the mental apparatus, on the therapeutic relationship, and on psychoanalytic technique.

The Hater of Love and Goodness: WSPP Five Fridays Seminar 11/18

The Washington Society of Psychoanalytic Psychology Presents ‘The Hater of Love and Goodness’.

Sharon Alperovitz, MSW, LICSW

Friday, November 18, 2016  11:30am-2:30pm

Envy disturbs – within ourselves and as a concept in psychoanalysis. In this workshop we will explore Melanie Klein’s idea of constitutional envy – an idea that stirred – and continues to stir – a storm of protests. In particular we will learn to identify and explore the varieties of envious experience from the most pathological towards the more everyday. In this way, it will help us to recognize an envious attack and, perhaps, more importantly how to think about it and work with it.

Registration: Free to members; $60 for non-members

CEs: This seminar earns 3 CEs which are free to members and included in the $60 non-member fee

Please register and send payment in advance to the address on the form. Registration forms are available at
