EVENT SPOTLIGHT: TRAUMA AND RECOVERY: A CLINICAL CONVERSATION

Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis North presents Trauma and Recovery: A Clinical Conversation with Paul H. Ornstein, M.D. and Anna Ornstein, M.D. The Ornsteins will discuss various forms of trauma, distinguishing between traumas of everyday life and extreme conditions; traumas experienced collectively or suffered individually and in secret; traumas of infancy and childhood and those experienced in adolescence and adulthood. The presentations will focus on recovery, taking into consideration such factors as: the pre-traumatic level of development (resilience), the nature of the traumatic experience, and the post-traumatic environmental circumstances.

Former close associates of Heinz Kohut, the Ornsteins are renowned exponents and interpreters of Kohut's Self Psychology. 

Saturday, April 29, 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM at UCSF Laurel Heights Conference Center, 3333 California Street, San Francisco. Cost is $75 before April 19 and $85 after that date. Student rate is $40.
