Dr. Shapiro will provide a review of contemporary psychoanalytic theories and address questions such as: “What do Freud, Ferenczi and Harry Stack Sullivan have in common?”; “What does neuroscience have to do with psychoanalysis?”; and “What does psychoanalytic process mean?”. He will present clinical material to illustrate how different ways of thinking have expanded his own ways of working with challenging cases.
