Scientific Meeting 2 CE Hours available for LCSW’s, LP’s, LMFT’s, LMHC’s and LCAT’s
QUANTUM PHYSICS AND PSYCHOANALYSIS: NEW CLINICAL MODELS FOR UNDERSTANDING DYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY
Live, in-person presenter: Gerald J. Gargiulo, Ph.D.

Friday, October 6, 2017 8:00 p.m.
Suggested contribution: $20 Admission with CE: $30

Community Unitarian Church 468 Rosedale Avenue White Plains, NY 10605 RSVP to Ken Barish barish@wcspp.org

Clinical vignettes will be offered for each of the models discussed. (more…)
