Struggling to Connect: Addiction, Attachment and the Self

June 7 @ 5:30 pm - June 8 @ 6:00 pm

We are pleased to announce the first inaugural Catherine Shropshire Hardman Symposium for the Advancement of Clinical Psychoanalysis and Interdisciplinary Research: Struggling to Connect: Addiction, Attachment, and the Self.  On the weekend of Friday, June 7, 2019-Saturday, June 8, 2019, Emory University Psychoanalytic Institute will be kicking off this new and exciting initiative.

The CSH symposium committee has designed this program for all clinicians, scholars, trainees, advocates, and patients who are interested in- and affected by substance abuse disorders.  Through interdisciplinary exchange and dialogue, we aim to deepen our clinical understanding of the interacting psychological, developmental, neurological, familial and linguistic systems that contribute to substance abuse disorders, use recurrence, and recovery from addiction.

The symposium’s Friday evening events include a networking hour and Keynote paper presentation by Linda Mayes, M.D. Saturday morning, we will reconvene for a continental breakfast followed by a series of panel discussions and interdisciplinary cross-talks.  Our very own Yudit Jung, Ph.D., LCSW and Andrea Crowell, M.D., Ph.D. will be presenting!  For more information about our distinguished panel presenters and the symposium schedule, please see the attached registration brochure.
