AAPCSW Conference: Mind & Milieu

March 23-26
Baltimore, MD

Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards
110 South Eutaw Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

This conference will highlight the inextricable link between mind and milieu and the complex relationships between our inner and outer worlds. These perspectives are at the core of social work’s emphasis on “person in environment” and the importance of relationships. We invite you to Baltimore, the birthplace of American psychoanalysis and home to many prominent thinkers who embraced the significance of the worlds within and beyond the consulting room. Join us as we explore and expand our contemporary understanding of the mind/milieu dynamic.

Cosponsored by The Washington Center for Psychoanalysis and
the National Institute for Psychoanalytic Education and Research, Inc. (NIPER), educational arm of AAPCSW.

17.5 maximum hours offered.
