    Listening with a neuropsychoanalytic ear: Does it make a difference?

    Saturday, November 1, 2014
    10:00 AM

    "Listening with a neuropsychoanalytic ear: Does it make a difference?"

    Psychoanalytic case presentation by
    Elizabeth L. Auchincloss, M.D.

    Neuropsychoanalytic discussion by
    Mark Solms, Ph.D.

    Dr. Auchincloss will present a case of regular psychoanalytic treatment with a (non-neurological) patient. Dr Solms will then discuss the case from a neuropsychoanalytic point of view. The discussion is unscripted (Dr. Solms is unfamiliar with the clinical material that will be presented). The ensuing dialogue will explore whether keeping the brain in mind, in our ordinary psychoanalytic work, can enhance understanding of the patient’s psychodynamics and the treatment relationship.

    RSVP is closed for this event.
