The New School Psychoanalytic Workshop presents:
“On Therapeutic Action: Relational and Lacanian Perspectives”
with Drs. Adrienne Harris and David Lichtenstein,
moderated by Dr. Chris Christian.
Two experienced psychoanalysts, Dr. Adrienne Harris and Dr. David Lichtenstein, will be discussing their conceptions of therapeutic change from a relational and a Lacanian perspective. They will compare and contrast their approaches to analytic work, exploring how the analyst listens, what the analyst listens for, what changes in treatment, and how. Dr. Chris Christian will moderate the discussion.
Friday, March 30th from 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Wolff Conference Room
The New School for Social Research
