Annual Psychodynamic Case Conference 2024

January 20, 2024

Saturday. January 20, 2024

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.

This year's conference will be held live in person at O'Keefe Audtiorium on the main MGH campus and livestreamed via Zoom.

You must register at mghcme.org in order to obtain your CE for attending either version of this course.
