• "Trauma, Resiliency and Psychodynamic Psychiatry" is the theme of the 54th annual meeting of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Dynamic Psychiatry. The meeting will be held May 20 to 22 at the Astor Crowne Plaza at 739 Canal Street.
The American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Dynamic Psychiatry works closely with APA, translating the applicability of the concepts of psychoanalysis and psychodynamics into the fields of neurobiology, psychopharmacology, cross-cultural psychiatry, creativity and the arts, and related disciplines. Under the leadership of Eugenio Rothe, M.D., and co-chairs David Lopez, M.D., and Juan Raul Condemarin, M.D., this meeting draws upon regional, national, and international speakers to pursue this goal.
The meeting will feature presentations by Glen Gabbard, M.D., Richard Friedman, M.D., Howard Osofsky, M.D., Charles Zeanah, M.D., Marty Drell, M.D., Clarice Kestenbaum, M.D., Sheila Hafter-Gray, M.D., and Richard Chessick, M.D.
