Redefining Expressive Analysis: Past, Present and Future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 710

Licensing of LCATs has led to an over identification with the medical model of 'curing illness,’ and has taken our profession far from our original focus on human development and potential for growth and improvement in 'quality of life' experiences. This panel of LCATs and licensed psychoanalysts will explore the need to refocus our training on the importance of creativity development and establishing the link between creativity and the unconscious as being the central treatment goals for the vast majority of patients that we see today. Each panelist will also explore her/his unique vision of expressive analysis. There will be time for group discussion.
