    "Clinical Neuropsychoanalysis: Three Cases of Psychoanalytic Therapy with Neurological Patients" with
    Mary Edlow, Joel Gavriele-Gold, and Les Max

    Introductory Remarks: Edith Laufer

    Discussant: Mark Solms, PhD

    This year the Neuropsychoanalytic Clinical Study Center of NPAP, a group of psychoanalysts working with neurological patients under the supervision of Mark Solms, celebrates its 10th anniversary. As part of the celebration, three members of the group will give brief presentations of cases which demonstrate the feasibility, effectiveness, and challenges of working with this kind of patient.

    While certain technical modifications are required, the audience will see that the essence of psychoanalytic work can be preserved, with valuable lessons for psychoanalysis as a whole.

    RSVP is appreciated but not necessary; first come, first-seated
