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. In contrast, link theory emphasizes the dialectic between internal representations and the external world, including the social and cultural aspects, and it highlights the importance of the other as a unique subject, rather than as an internal representation. There will be a case presentation by Lisa C. Beritzhoff, MFT and a discussion to illustrate the perspective link theory brings to clinical issues in psychoanalysis
