The Inattentive and Disinhibited Self

12/6

Does my client have ADHD?  The 2-part workshop “The Inattentive and Disinhibited Self: Attention, Attention Deficit and the nature of psychological development in the life of children” is designed to help clinicians understand the complicated nature of attention. It begins with a class on the multi-faceted nature of attention and how to assess the different elements clinically. We will next look at all the factors that could impact attention as well as the interaction between attentional problems and psychological distress. Finally, we will discuss clinical material to get a better understanding of attention and disinhibition in context and how attention problems contribute to and are shaped by the developing self.

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.
