Exploring the Clinical Moment: A Series on Listening Psychoanalytically

The Contemporary Freudian Society is offering a series of five monthly meetings for early or mid-career mental health professionals on listening deeply to clinical material from within a psychoanalytic perspective. These meetings are designed to provide a warm, interactive, and inclusive space from which to discuss how we each listen and respond to clinical material from both our theoretical orientation and  the  unique workings of each person’s mind.  The meetings will be held at the same location each month and, after a light dinner, will feature a different CFS member who will present a clinical moment from his or her practice and help facilitate a lively discussion after.  Although participants are encouraged to attend as many meetings as possible, each presentation is designed as a separate and self-contained learning experience.

Please confirm early as there is limited space, and no later than 48 hours in advance.
