About the Event:
These two sessions will focus on major clinical concepts from contemporary Self Psychology and, through the use of verbatim clinical dialogue, study their implications for conducting dynamic psychotherapy. Emphasizing patient- centered rather than theory-centered treatment, we will focus on implementing an empathic listening stance and understanding of the basic theoretical concepts underlying self psychological treatment.

In addition, Dr. Geist is on the Executive Board of the International Association of Psychoanalytic Self Psychology.  He has written numerous papers on clinical self psychology, many of which have emphasized the theme of connectedness in clinical practice.  He is currently working on a book entitled Connectedness: the clinical application of contemporary self psychological theory.  He maintains a private practice in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in Newton, MA where he
sees children, adolescents, adults, and couples, in addition to doing private supervision.

After the program the participants will be able to:
