Language and Other Communications
The Child Psychoanalytic Program of SFCP welcomes you to a series of presentations demonstrating the scope of intensive work with children. These events offer an opportunity to hear a range of theoretical perspectives and clinical approaches. This year the series focuses on trauma recovery and the important role of the caregiver’s ability to attend to children's deep anxieties and their defenses. We hope you will attend several events and become part of the ongoing discussion, contributing to enriching clinical work and theoretical understanding.
