This is an inter-theoretical conference in which panelists will present their ideas about what it means to think developmentally in doing psychoanalytic work. The audience will have an opportunity to discuss the presentations with the panelists after each of the two panels, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. In addition, there will be luncheon break-out groups in which participants will be able to react to the panelists and speak with each other about their own ideas.
