A Neuropsychodynamic Model for the Treatment of Individuals with Learning Disorders

3/21

In recent years, psychotherapists with a psychodynamic orientation have been giving increased attention to the contribution of neurological factors to unsuccessful accommodations. The integration of knowledge from other disciplines, particularly the neurosciences, into psychoanalysis presents major challenges to psychodynamic theory. This seminar offers a new model for the understanding and treatment of these conditions.
