New voices in South American Psychoanalysis:
a clinical forum using link theory with Argentinian psychoanalyst Monica Vorchheimer

Please join PINC, SFCP, NCSPP and PCPG for a special clinically focussed event featuring our international visiting scholar, Monica Vorchheimer. She is an award winning training and supervising psychoanalyst and couple psychotherapist from Buenos Aires and will be highlighting link theory, an innovative Latin American psychoanalytic model. Traditional psychoanalytic models have relied on the concepts of transference and projective identification to understand relating.

By facilitating symbolic understanding of deviations from these rules, the Frame facilitates symbolic interpretation of the patient’s relationship to the external, to her or his unconscious, and to the therapist or analyst.
