Dr. Jeanne Magagna will discuss aspects of psychotic states of mind through a supervision of therapeutic encounters with a child.  The audience will have various types of opportunities to participate in the discussion of the relationship between the child and the psychotherapist and the child's internal and external family relationships.  Assessing psychological development during a session and throughout the work will be part of the aim of the meeting.
