Upcoming Courses

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy 2017 (Full Conference, Pre-Conference, and Main Conference)

March 23, 2017 – March 25, 2017 | Boston, MA | The Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel

This extraordinary 13th annual conference features renowned faculty in the field of psychodynamic psychotherapy offering their innovative and evolving reflections on the integration of theoretical constructs into clinical practice, as well as case presentations and discussions by master clinicians. Our overriding goal will be to widen the scope of applicability of psychodynamic psychotherapy to a broader range of clinical situations and to deepen understanding of the curative process, with special attention to the contributions of both patient and therapist in the unfolding of the “cure.”

This course is designed so that participants will be able to:

Elucidate the therapeutic action of psychodynamic psychotherapy;

Define the contributions of different paradigms to therapeutic change;

Integrate current theories into actual practice;

Expand the scope of applicability of psychodynamic constructs to a variety of clinical situations.
