The Talk  

Published writings are the official documentation of psychoanalysis, yet it is the experience of the individual psychoanalytic practitioner and the unique knowledge and values by which they practice which is the heart of psychoanalysis.

In this conference the presenter discusses his own study of being a psychoanalyst. He will describe his ongoing search for what is true and useful in psychoanalytic theory and technique. Mr. Hagman will share what he has come to believe are the psychoanalytic essentials and how they have shaped his understanding of the field and his clinical practice. Case examples will be shared and discussion encouraged.
