Challenging ideas, solution-focused conversations, and a new format at NAAP’s 47th Annual Conference!
We can make a difference! Boundaries, Borders, Biases: helpful and damaging. How can we recognize and address their micro and self-evident expressions in ourselves, our work, and society? Join our group of influential thinkers and practitioners for an opportunity to share ideas: to hear and be heard in our unique town hall format.
This year’s conference will be an opportunity to hear from colleagues engaged in exploring some of the most troubling issues pressing us as mental health professionals and as members of the world community. Whether identity, race, religion, gender, immigration, safe environments, or the politics of training, we face these issues daily. It’s not only the large scale culture of corruption and exclusion that challenges our ability to remain centered. The sometimes subtle erosion of our awareness of boundary breaches or biased listening also have a broadreaching impact on the way we work and live. The times we thought of psychoanalysts as clinicians safely seated in clinical offices, immune to the world fray, have gone the way of phone booths and land lines. Today is the day for us to take a serious look at some harsh realities that need our attention and expertise. There are many areas where we can make a difference in a fragmented world. We can start by stepping back and taking a good look at ourselves, our institutions, our clinical practices and commitments to the larger community.
ANNOUNCEMENT : NEW TOWN HALL FORMAT
We’ve had requests from many of our members to create more time within the conferences for them to explore the topics presented. A sense that provocative questions or issues are raised by our guest speakers and little opportunity to delve into them. We have designed a format to address this, and hope it will encourage everyone to take advantage of the chance to dig deeper in conversation with colleagues.
There will be two morning and one afternoon speaker. That will be followed by participants breaking out into smaller groups where they can choose to discuss issues or questions from the earlier part of the day. At the end of the discussion group everyone will return to a general session. A representative selected by each group will share the questions, suggestions, concerns raised in their group. We hope this will inspire more ongoing discussions and action points we may be able to implement. We can make a difference.
The much sought after Gradiva Awards, celebrating outstanding contributions to creativity and exploration of the human experience, will be presented at a delicious luncheon banquet.
The NAAP Analysts-in-Training Writing Awards will be presented and described at the luncheon.
