Healing the Self Through Affect Integration: An Intersubjective Approach
– by Jane Rubin, PhD [SEMINAR]

Fri October 16, 2020 | 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Zoom, Virtual CA United States
$300 – $320

Narrative: What is the source of our patients’ suffering? How can we most effectively address it? There are as many psychoanalytic answers to these questions as there are psychoanalytic theories.
