This talk will present the interface between some of the primary findings of quantum physics and the clinical practice of dynamic psychotherapy. Quantum physics models can be useful for many different therapeutic approaches. They have particular benefit for validating the findings of relational psychoanalysis. Quantum physics models also provide a wider framework for understanding clinical practice than do Newtonian models, which rely on cause and effect, determinism, and accept the bifurcation of conscious and unconscious. Clinical vignettes will be offered for each of the models discussed.

Gerald J. Gargiulo is a psychotherapist/psychoanalyst in practice in Stamford, CT and New York City. He is on the editorial boards of The Psychoanalytic Review, Psychoanalytic Psychology & Contemporary Psychoanalytic Studies. He is a former President of the NPAP Psychoanalytic Training Institute and a former President and founding member of The International Forum for Psychoanalytic Education. He has authored numerous professional articles as well as three texts, the latest of which is Quantum Psychoanalysis: Essays on Physics, Mind and Analysis Today.
