AAPCSW 2019 Conference

Logo: AAPCSW 2019 Conference: Intrigue, Insight, Inquiry: Through Today's Psychoanalytic Lens

March 28-31 | Durham, NC

Intrigue, Insight, Inquiry:
Through Today's Psychoanalytic Lens

In these multilayered and challenging professional times, how can we sustain excellence in clinical theory and practice? Our challenge is in safeguarding core values — individual dignity, respect for diversity, social justice advocacy — as we embrace innovations in psychoanalytic knowledge. Holding this complexity in mind, the conference aims to provide a space to explore the human condition in health and illness. We will view these ideas in relation to clinical experience, based on understanding the intersection of the inner and outer world. We will also continue to build our legacy for the next generation. Join us in our efforts at facing our challenges, and promoting depth and breadth in our insights about contemporary clinical practice.

~ Penny Rosen, Conference Chair

Location: Durham Marriott City Center/Durham Convention Center, Durham, NC.
