OPC offers a series of meetings for early or mid-career mental health professionals, on listening deeply to clinical material from within a psychodynamic perspective.  They provide a warm, interactive, and inclusive space from which to discuss how we each listen and respond to clinical material from, both our theoretical orientation and the unique workings of each person's mind.  An OPC member will present a clinical moment from his/her practice, which will be followed by a lively discussion.  Each presentation is designed as a separate and self-contained learning experience.

Please note:  this program is NOT held at OPC.  Location addres to be provided prior to the program. There isno charge; there will be refreshments! Advance registration is required, as space is limited.
