Contemporary Freudian Mind-Body Seminars


In 2014, the Contemporary Freudian Society is sponsoring a series of study groups on topics that explore the mind-body connection. We are offering psychotherapists and psychoanalysts in the DC metropolitan area the opportunity to learn about current theory and technique in this clinical spectrum in small group settings.

The following MARCH 1 Saturday morning workshop is limited to a group of 25 participants.  Register early to ensure a space.

 Injury in Adolescence: Its Impact on the Developing Mind-Body Relationship (GROUP 1)

This workshop will address the impact of injury on adolescent athletes. We will discuss how it affects their evolving sense of identity, the relationship that may develop between the mind and body because of the injury, and how an injury may create a sense of marginality in the adolescent’s peer group. We will look at all of this in the context of the three sub-phases of adolescence: early, middle and late.

Dr. Marsha Levy-Warren, Group Leader, is the author of The Adolescent Journey: Development, Identity Formation, and Psychotherapy, and numerous articles on the psychoanalytic theory of development, clinical work, and ethnicity and culture.

Location: NW Washington, DC  – American University

Registration will close on February 22.
