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

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. Read the rest of this post »
