This conference addresses issues related to the application of current knowledge about brain development and brain functions in the clinical setting. The aim is to enhance clinicians’ effectiveness by enlarging their understanding of patients’ psychodynamics and increasing the repertoire of interventions available to them.

Sexual harassment is the buzzword of our times, yet most professionals have had little or no sexual harassment prevention training or knowledge about addressing the ethics.
The presentation aims to explore the issues of Aging as a Psychotherapist through both historical and clinical lenses.
How does a female therapist negotiate power, gender, and psychic violence in the therapeutic dyad with a male patient? In this presentation, one clinician will present the case of a male patient with an erotized transference with a strong coercive element to it.
