SPECIAL NOTICE - Visiting Professor - March 16-21, 2020

As many of you were notified recently, Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Visiting Professor program with Jack Drescher, M.D.

Due to the state of emergency that Governor Whitmer has declared and a result of our rapidly changing coronavirus situation locally and globally, we decided it would be best for all if we did not gather together in groups.

We have also cancelled the MPI Open House scheduled for Saturday, March 21.

We hope that all individuals and their families stay safe and take the appropriate precautions of quarantine and isolation if sick and seek immediate medical care. It is clear that early intervention is extremely important for this illness.

About the presenter: Dr. Drescher is a distinguished life fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, past president of the Group for Advancement of Psychiatry and a past president of APA’s New York County Psychiatric Society. He is clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons and faculty member, Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research.

He is a training and supervising analyst at the William Alanson White Institute. With authorships and honors too numerous to mention here.

Practice Gap Need and Course Description: Many analysts/therapists are not aware of Freud’s early contributions to homosexuality, which can have, and be perceived to have, embedded moralizing and judgmental qualities. Through use of power point and discussion Dr. Drescher will detail Freud’s early contributions to the study of human sexuality and then the problems in psychoanalysis that have served as obstacles in promoting its findings to other disciplines, as well as, patients.

After attending this presentation, participants will be able to: 1) Define Freud’s early contributions to the study of human sexuality. 2) Identify current problems in the field of psychoanalysis that serve as obstacles to promoting its findings to other disciplines.
