We have reached maximum capacity for this event. 

The purpose of the salon is to gather in an informal setting to share basic and applied psychoanalytic principles that help you explore your interest in psychoanalysis and/or psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Description: Therapist self-disclosure has been a hotly debated topic since Freud’s recommendations for analytic neutrality, abstinence and anonymity. As societal and professional norms change, including our current internet culture where privacy issues abound, how does a modern clinician adapt while maintaining a psychodynamic stance? What might clinical decision making look like when learning your client has “googled” you, obtaining information about your personal life? How do we navigate our own visible and invisible identities as they impact the clinical space? How and when might a clinician disclose an invisible identity? We will explore clinical examples and theoretical perspectives about working psychodynamically with these complicated topics.

Biography: Dr. Nikki Kraslin is a licensed clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst with private practices in both Boulder and Denver.
