We are increasingly aware of the significance of affective processes in essential human survival functions. A number of scientific and clinical research studies have been converging on the centrality of affect, including unconscious and dissociated affect. These are now becoming a central focus of psychotherapeutic work.
This program is composed of pioneers and essential contributors to the ongoing paradigm shift. All are authors who have written extensively on the themes of the relationship between early development, affect regulation, relational trauma, psychopathogenesis, and psychodynamic models of the treatment of both mind and body, especially with the more severe personality disorders. The conference faculty includes infant researchers, neuroscientists, psychoanalysts, and trauma investigators, and yet all are experienced clinicians, each with decades of psychotherapy practice.
All of the presentations focus on the practical applications of ongoing neurobiological and developmental studies, groundbreaking clinical explorations, and interdisciplinary theoretical modeling of survival-related affective and self- regulatory phenomena. Presenters discuss various aspects of their current work, as well as dialogue between other presenters and the audience.
