    Candidate Case Presentation: An analytic approach to issues of gender, race, and class

    Tuesday, June 20, 2017
    8:00 PM

    Presenter: Thomas DePrima, M.D.
    Discussant: Avgi Saketopoulou, Psy.D.

    Dr. DePrima will be presenting material from the analysis of a middle aged Latina woman with a focus on her difficulty with romantic relationships. He will highlight the ways in which gender, race, and class play a central role in the patient’s life, in her relationship issues, and in the treatment. After presenting a brief history and formulation of the case, Dr. DePrima will present process material to discuss with Dr. Saketopoulou who will offer insight into the ways she thinks through issues of gender, race, and class as they pertain to the clinical case. Time will be left for the discussion to be opened up to the audience.

    No CME or CE credits offered.

    Closed Meeting: NYPSI members and candidates only.
