WEEKEND WORKSHOP WITH MARK SOLMS
A PRACTICAL INTRODUCTION TO NEUROPSYCHOANALYSIS: CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS
 
New York City
December 9-10, 2017

The Arnold Pfeffer Center for Neuropsychoanalysis
of the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute

247 East 82nd Street, New York, NY
 
How do emerging models of the brain and mind inform clinical practice?
Join Mark Solms for an overview of key topics in neuropsychoanalysis that enrich our theory and technique. A series of in-depth lectures will be presented, followed by detailed discussions of clinical material. See below for program and registration.
 
2 CME/ CE credits offered per session for physicians, psychologists, and social workers. 12 CME/CE credits offered for the two day program in its entirety.

Attendees will also accumulate credit for a clinical register being established by the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society. Completion of the workshop will count towards certification, when the register opens (there will also be additional requirements, still being determined).

Morning and afternoon coffee and refreshments will be provided. Lunch is not included in registration; participants will go out for lunch at nearby restaurants.
