This event will present Dr. Gann’s original and groundbreaking work with adolescents through Today’s Future Sound.  The program will explore musical and cultural aspects of hip hop, including sampling and beat-making, in relation to the practice of the analytic frame, using Freud’s theory of repetition, Winnicott’s notion of “going-on-being,” and Peter Goldberg’s concept of beta-function.

Elliot Gann, PsyD is a child and adolescent clinical psychologist.  He is a long-time beat maker and Executive Director of Today’s Future Sound, an organization focused on youth in Bay Area schools, community settings, and across the globe, using Hip Hop beat making and culture as a mental health, educational, social justice and cross-cultural interventions.
