Dr. Apprey is one of a select few individuals trained in London by Anna Freud at the Hampstead Clinic, now The Anna Freud Centre,  where he graduated in 1979.  Dr. Apprey then trained in adult psychoanalysis at the Contemporary Freudian Society, the institute in which he now serves as training and supervising analyst.  Interested in the tension between description and interpretation, he continued his studies with Amedeo Giorgi at the Saybrook Institute in San Francisco.  It was from that Institute he received a Ph.D. in human science research. In addition he has a Doctor of Management from the Wetherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University where he studied social change management.

With his focus on interethnic conflict resolution, he was a member of the interdisciplinary team from the Center for the Study of Mind and Human Interaction of the University of Virginia that managed the transition from Sovietization to the restoration of independence of Estonia in Eastern Europe from 1994 to 1999.

Today, Dr. Apprey  is a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia where he has taught undergraduate and medical students, residents in psychiatry and psychology, and hospital chaplains, among others.

A prolific writer, Dr. Apprey has published extensively on the topics of: conflict resolution and social change management; modern French and German phenomenology; and child, adolescent and adult psychoanalysis. This blend of knowledge, passion and research has informed his latest publications, and attendees can expect him to draw from all areas in his presentation.

Dr. Apprey will be considering the analysis of transgenerational transmission of destructive aggression.  Dr. Apprey utilizes ordinary and extraordinary stories of returning to oneself as part of the narrative on transgenerational transmission.  In his paper he poses the following questions: What basic conceptual assumptions could facilitate how we theorize transgenerational transmission? What impediments present themselves when we use existing psychoanalytic theories in inflexible ways as points of entry into the psychoanalytic exploration? Additionally, he brings a concept of resistance as provider of opportunity rather than as opposition.
