Exploring the Clinical Moment: A Series on Listening Psychoanalytically

The Contemporary Freudian Society offers a series of meetings for early or mid- career mental health professionals on listening deeply to clinical material from within a contemporary psychoanalytic perspective. These meetings are designed to provide a warm, interactive, and inclusive space from which to discuss how we each listen and respond to clinical material from both our theoretical orientation and the unique workings of each person’s mind.  TBD
