Annual Psychodynamic Case Conference 2023

January 21, 2023

January 21, 2023

The psychodynamic case conference is an annual training to enhance knowledge in the clinical field especially through discussion around insight-oriented approaches to complex cases. Psychodynamic theory approaches case conceptualization of understanding in-depth unconscious and conscious processes related to one’s sense of self, interpersonal relatedness, defense mechanisms and attachment styles. This conference offers a multifaced approach to a clinical case. A presenter will read a clinical case write up, then following the write up the discussants will each read their written conceptualization of the case. This will then be followed with a Q and A from the audience.
