Special keynote speaker
In the early years of neuropsychoanalysis, we were cautious about making direct recommendations for applying neuroscientific findings to everyday clinical technique. We found that our neuroscientific models were largely, and perhaps surprisingly, consonant with psychodynamic models of mental functioning; so, no specific changes seemed to be called for.
As we enter our third decade, however, our understanding has deepened. Some neuropsychoanalytic hypotheses have now emerged that seem to have direct implications for clinical technique with non-neurological patients. Also, many of us have found, upon reflection, ways in which neuropsychoanalysis has implicitly and subtly affected our clinical work. These private revisions remain to be explicitly articulated and explored. In fact, psychotherapy in general abounds with clinical challenges that could be productively illuminated by recent advances in neuropsychoanalysis. In this spirit, this conference creates a space to communicate and evaluate the ways in which neuroscientific research findings are influencing and might further influence our clinical work.
Attendance at the Congress requires being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Participants must wear masks indoors at all times, except when giving a presentation. Boosters are not currently required. Additional requirements for travel to the U.S. also apply, including the list of vaccines being accepted by the U.S. for international travel – for more details, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/noncitizens-US-air-travel.html and see the list of accepted vaccines by clicking here.

Any registration may be cancelled for any reason up to July 1 for a full refund. After July 1, we will not be able to offer refunds for registration (including for any individuals who become unable to travel due to a positive Covid test or other personal circumstances), but will offer credits towards future events.
