    THE MAGIC YEARS OF SELMA FRAIBERG: CLINICIAN, RESEARCHER, AND WRITER

    A Conference in honor of her 100th birthday


    Saturday, September 8, 2018, 12:00 PM until 4:00 PM

    Selma Fraiberg’s integration of social work and psychoanalysis had a profound impact on infant mental health, child development, psychoanalysis, and the larger community. Beginning with group work with disadvantaged children and an unconventional psychoanalytic training, Fraiberg’s interventions with blind children, her groundbreaking innovations in infant mental health, and her prolific writings--including her classic work, The Magic Years--have left a lasting legacy.

    Featuring Li Brookens, LCSW

    This event is free of charge but we gladly welcome donations at the event or on our website.

    Description:

    Participants will be exploring current mental health practices aligning with optimal health for our transgender clients. After initial teachings on gender, gender development, and transgender identity and expression, attendees will participate in a gender experiential group discussion as part of the learning.

    Goals: 

    1. Identify core transgender health needs in mental health and society. 
    2. Expand core concepts of gender identity and expression beyond binary, essentialist thinking. 
    3. Differentiate between Gender Dysphoria and Gender Expansiveness. 
    4. Evaluate the nature of gender identity and expression within clients with regard to tensions between mind, body, and society. 
    5. Utilize methods of facilitating gender expansive dialogue with all clients.
    About the Speaker:
    Li Brookens is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Group Psychotherapist in private practice in Boulder, Colorado. In 2017, they received a Community Service Award for their work with the transgender community from the Colorado Society for Clinical Social Work. Li has advanced skills in working with LGBTQ+ identities, young adults, and groups. Li works collaboratively with clients weaving together psychodynamic theory and postmodern therapy using a social justice lens that centers on marginalized identities. "I believe that each client I work with has an inner knowing that is seeking to be uncovered and understood. I see my job as helping my clients excavate that knowledge so they can empower themselves to make meaningful changes in their lives."  You can learn more about our speaker at librookens.com.

    Call for Proposals – 2019

    Association for Child Psychoanalysis Annual Meeting

    May 3-5, 2019

    Miami, Florida

    The Association for Child Psychoanalysis (ACP) Program Committee invites papers that describe in-depth analytic work with children and adolescents.  Proposals should be between three and five double-spaced pages in length and should include one or two detailed examples of the analytic process, in addition to a brief dynamic case formulation.

    At this time, a theme has not been selected for the conference.  We have found that areas of focus suggest themselves from common threads evident in the proposals received by the Committee.  

    The review by the Committee is a blind, i.e., anonymous, process.  For this reason, please be sure that your proposal does not include any information that would identify you, including your city or state.  Please attach a signed cover letter that lets us know whether or not the paper has been or will be presented in any other venues, i.e., presentations or publications, and specifies those venues.  In this cover letter, please indicate the frequency, i.e., number of sessions per week, and any changes in frequency that occurred during the course of the treatment.  The cover letter will be seen by only the two of us and Ms. Janet Blomquist, the ACP Administrator.  Proposals should be sent to Ms. Janet Blomquist at childanalysis65@gmail.com

    If you have questions, please contact Andrea Weiss, PhD at aweisswhit@gmail.com  or (310) 247-9677, or Karen Weise, PhD at klweisephd@yahoo.com or (202) 237-6161 

    We hope you will consider sharing your clinical experiences with child psychoanalytic colleagues, as every contribution benefits us all.  We are available to think with you or to serve as sounding boards as you develop your proposals.

    NOT A SOCIETY EVENT

    Presenters will address various aspects of our overarching theme,

    Partners in Creation: “In the arts, as in psychoanalysis, partners in creation enjoy the pleasures of intimacy and mutual discovery, while also facing the perils of rivalry and fusion.”

    The planning committee looks forward to the return of well-received presenters from the 2017 Symposium and have also invited additional renowned speakers. Once again, we will offer tours of museums and other attractions in Florence, a city that overflows with superlative art and architecture, within a setting of inspiring beauty.

    Periodically, we will send updates on the 2020 symposium as venues are selected and speakers are added to the program. When the date draws near, we will also share information about hotel accommodations and registration details. If you are not on the mailing list, email: germana@enic.it
