Analysts to Meet In New York

Volume 39 Number 6 page 36-36

The American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Dynamic Psychiatry will hold its 48th Annual Meeting in New York City at the Sheraton New York Hotel from Thursday, April 29, through Sunday, May 2, contiguous with APA’s annual meeting.

The theme of the meeting is "Psychodynamic Education, Assertive Approaches." For several decades, the teaching of psychoanalytic and dynamic precepts has waned in general psychiatric education. Now residents and attending psychiatrists have begun to seek more understanding of the ways to approach their patients through dream interpretation, transferential analysis, and behavioral motivation. Residency review committees are requiring proficiency in dynamic psychiatry as well.

The program is designed to approach these objectives in several ways: panelists will present the overview of what is right and what is wrong in psychodynamic education and where it needs to go. There will be workshops on supervision, use of videotaping, and use of pharmacology and neurobiology to teach an integrated comprehension using writing, dreams, and therapeutic failure. In addition, case presentations and interpretations will be made by respected senior analysts from Europe and America. Stressing the juncture of dynamics with the field of psychiatry as a whole, the keynote address will be given by APA President Marcia Goin, M.D. The opening talk will be given by Samuel Klagsbrun, M.D., a noted author and educator.

Psychiatry has always ventured outside the examining room and worked with human issues and rights. In honor of the dedication and courage of Judd Marmor, M.D., who died in December, a special panel will examine his life, his work, and his contributions to humanism and therapy. In honor of Alexandra Symonds, M.D., a full-day symposium will take place on Saturday, May 1, focusing on women, anger, and assertiveness from the Renaissance to today, noting characteristics of particular racial and religious groups constructively working on solutions. Discussion groups and a luncheon will encourage participation and sharing by audience members.
