2016 has been an exciting year for our Web Seminars.  Our most recent program ran from October 17 to 31, 2016, and was lead by Margaret Crastnopol (USA). The webinar was entitled “Micro-traumatic Experience: Identifying and Healing its Cumulative Toxic Effects.”  The conversation was challenging and lively, with approximately 100 participants from all over the world.

2017 is shaping up to be another year of rich programs lead by some of the most exciting thinkers in our field. Starting with the Candidates’ webinar from January 16 through February 5, Sandra Buechler (USA) will lead candidates and recent graduates in a discussion entitled “Thinking, Feeling, and Relating.  Readings will include chapters from Buechler’s book Making a Difference in Patients’ Lives: Emotional Experience in the Therapeutic Setting (Routledge, 2008).

From March 27 through April 9, we will conduct a webinar in Italian entitled “The Supervision Experience.” Several Italian panelists, including Susanna Federici, Gianni Nebbiosi, Paolo Stramba-Badiale, Maria Silvia Soriato, and Arcangela Derosa will present. Each faculty member will offer ideas about the supervisory process, combining his or her own experiences with an historical/theoretical perspective, beginning with Ferenczi through to the present day.
