Enriching Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy Using New Models and Metaphors from Contemporary Science

December 9, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST


2 CE Hours available for
NY Practitioners – LCSWs, LMSWs, LPs, LMFTs, LMHCs, LCATs, PHDs, PSYD’s

Overview: Psychoanalysis and psychotherapy can be enriched through interdisciplinary studies that move beyond the confines of psychoanalysis itself.  This scientific meeting will look toward the contemporary sciences to provide new ideas, models, and metaphors that can both broaden and enrich psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.  Freud was very much influenced by the Newtonian paradigm of his times.  Contemporary science has undergone major paradigm shifts since Freud’s studies.  These presentations will explore how such contemporary models can help deepen the psychotherapeutic process.  Areas of contemporary science to be touched upon are quantum physics, chaos and complexity theory, neuroscience, and epigenetics.
