The Child Analytic Program of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis welcomes you to a series of presentations representing the remarkable scope of child psychoanalysis today. These discussions will offer us an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the mind and of human development seen through the lens of clinical experience with children and adolescents. We also will examine the use of film portraying the thinking processes of children.

Dr. Rosenfeld, internationally known for his work with psychot-ic and addictive patients, presents a film which documents his treatment of a young boy diagnosed with autism. We observe what “Dr. David” did and said to his patient. The film follows Benjamin moving from a child without language, in a state of constant panic to recovery and becoming a “real kid”, capable of friendships and progressing in a normal school setting.
