Book Review
A Girl’s Chilhood: Psychological Development, Social Change,
and the Yale Child Study Center,

edited by Linda C. Mayes and Stephen Lassonde

 

In 1950, the Director of the Yale Child Study Center, Milton Senn, M.D., a psychoanalytically trained pediatrician, received a grant from the Commonwealth Fund to conduct the Yale Longitudinal Study of the Child. The study was ambitious in its scope and purpose: To learn about child development and to make predictions about personality development from data gleaned from pre-natal and pediatric visits, nursery-school observation, home visits and the psychoanalytic treatments that study subjects and their parents were offered when clinically indicated.

Newsletter Committee News

Newsletter Committee News

by Lynda Connelly, Newsletter Publisher

During the summer the staff will be updating the Roster. Aaron Chow will be asking for contact information updates and I will be doing the same for the various committees, their chairs and members. I will also be doing some research as to the various programs and who we can reach out to in order to gain a wider audience and attendance for these events. I have spoken to several committee chairs as to their thoughts on outreach and I would appreciate input from other members as to where I should look for this information. I expect the summer months to be unusually busy and many projects need my full attention and I want to be able to give all divisions and committee chairs extended attention now that I feel more knowledgeable about the Center and the Membership.

Ethics and Impairment Committee News

Ethics and Impairment Committee News

by Robert L. Friend, EIC member

 

The Ethics and Impairment Committee, in conjunction with the Membership Integration Committee, put on a follow-up workshop on drawing up a professional will on February 28, 2015. Peter Goldberg presented his experience of figuring out how to handle a colleague’s practice who died without having a professional will. Many of the issues that Dr. Goldberg faced are those that need to be considered when drawing up such a will. He had to devise a way of contacting patients and offering for them to be seen by an analyst for consultation around the death and possibly making a referral. This involved calling on colleagues to be available, and developing a specifically transitional consultative role to help the patients consider their options for further treatment.
