The Magic Years of Selma Fraiberg: Clinician, Researcher, Writer

March 24, 2018 @ 2:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

The Sanville Institute and the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work present a conference celebrating the centenary of the birth of Selma Fraiberg

Selma Fraiberg’s integration of social work and psychoanalysis had a profound impact on infant mental health, child development, psychoanalysis and the larger community. Beginning with group work with disadvantaged children and an unconventional psychoanalytic training, Fraiberg’s interventions with blind children, her groundbreaking innovations in infant mental health and her prolific writings–including her classic work, The Magic Years–have left a lasting legacy.

6 CE credits for LCSWs, MFTs & Psychologists
