The Art of Listening:
Psychoanalytic Transformations

As contemporary psychotherapy has become inundated with approaches offering a quick fix, the act of listening, the “art of listening” in healing psychic pain has lost its once exalted status. Psychoanalytic clinicians believe that deep and sustained transformations occur in an environment in which the individual feels both seen and heard. In this conference, we wish to emphasize that listening is an art, which is mastered through demanding study, hard-won self-awareness, and the gift of innate talent.
