42nd Annual Scientific Conference
Shame, Guilt & Prejudice: Emerging Possibilities
Scholastic Center, 577 Broadway, NYC
Saturday, November 15, 2014
I want to welcome you all to the 2014 annual NAAP conference, "Shame, Guilt & Prejudice: Emerging Possibilities.” For the second consecutive year, we have integrated two noted, contemporary visual artists—Josephine Mecksepper and Chloe Piene—with outstanding psychoanalysts to create what I believe you will find to be an exhilarating program.
I also want to thank and congratulate Patricia Bratt, our Conference Chair, and the entire Conference Committee for their outstanding work in coordinating and arranging all the aspects of this year's conference. As usual, they have made it look seamless, but it required hours of preparation.
Thanks, too, to our distinguished psychoanalyst presenters: Arnold Richards, recipient of the 2013 IFPE Hans Loewald Award; Emily Kuriloff, whose book Contemporary Psychoanalysis and the Legacy of the Third Reich provided the initial impetus for the conference topic; and Claude Barbre and Richard Raubolt, both former Gradiva® Award winners.
Please, enjoy the day. I'm sure it will fill all of your senses with food for thought.
Douglas F. Maxwell, President
