You are invited to join

Donna Roth Smith, LCSW & Hilda Catz, Ph.D

Saturday, October 26, 2024 

11 am – 2 pm Eastern time

via Zoom

This conference offers a new way to talk about our clinical work. Our interlocutors will talk together through the year about ongoing treatments and then bring participants into the conversation they have been having.

Moderator – Kerry Kelly Novick

Clinical work performed in isolation or within only a small group of colleagues risks a narrowing of techniques. A continuing conversation between experienced clinicians, working together throughout the year and then sharing their discourse with the conference participants, allows for a detailed examination of clinical process with children of different ages. These distinguished interlocutors from Buenos Aires in Argentina and New York in the USA bring different training traditions and approaches, allowing for cross-fertilization at both theoretical and technical levels.


After this conference, participants will be able to:

-Expand the repertoire of their technical interventions to address complex pathology

-Include new approaches that address developmental pathology

-Describe the effectiveness of different technical approaches.
