This interactive discussion will engage all audience members to think and discuss together as a group about the ways we cultivate a psychoanalytic practice. We will answer the questions: how do we advertise for analytic patients; how do we screen analytic patients, whether that is on the phone, through email, or in an initial consultation; how do we initiate folks into the psychoanalytic process; and how do we help grow and develop psychoanalytic thinking and experiencing in our patient’s minds.
Learning Objectives: At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
· Identify three specific techniques to advertise for or screen analytic patients.
· Describe two techniques to cultivate psychoanalytic thinking and experiencing in patients.
