NPSA Clinical Workshop II
New York City
Sunday, April 8, 2018

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 ideas in neuropsychoanalysis that enrich our theory and technique. Two analytic case presentations will then be followed by detailed discussions of clinical material from a neuropsychoanalytic perspective. See below for program and registration.
2 CME/ CE credits offered per session for physicians, psychologists, and social workers. 6 CME/CE credits offered for the day's 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.
Early bird rates available through April 1.
