Riggs Presenters Discussing Conflict at the Division 39 Annual Meeting



Conflict is the theme of the 34th annual spring meeting of The American Psychological Association (APA) Division 39 (Division of Psychoanalysis). Although conflict is experienced at many levels - from individual suffering, to interpersonal and familial struggles, to violence and war, there are often few forums to discuss and learn from these experiences. This year’s program will promote a pluralistic dialogue to engage conflict openly and directly in an effort to hear differentiated perspectives with the goal of negotiation, clarification and understanding. Three Austen Riggs staff members will be presenting in this year’s program in New York City, taking place April 23 – 27.
