The Freud/Ferenczi Letters: A staged Reading of Selected letters

Saturday, November 1, 2014 3 - 6 PM (1.5 CE) University of Denver (Craig Hall, Community Room) Four prominent clinicians will enact a staged reading of selected letters from a remarkable correspondence between Sigmund Freud and Sandor Ferenczi. This dramatic reading highlights the history of the founders of "the talking cure". The complex emotional texture of this highly creative relationship led to the growth of the practice of psychotherapy. Their tensions stimulated the development of the art of psychotherapy. The echo of their personal struggles still reverberates in the contemporary dialogues and debates in our field. The strength of their disagreements at the dawn of the 20th Century led to the roots of Freudian and Relational trends in psychotherapy today. Many of the issues that each of us face in our daily clinical practice will be illuminated by an appreciation of how Freud and Ferenczi confronted and handled the challenges of their psychotherapeutic work. This program has been presented to audiences of psychotherapists in Prague, New York, and next year in London. We are fortunate to have Denver counted among those cities. After the staged reading and a discussion, there will be a social hour with food and drink. Register now! $25 - Students, $45 - Members, $55 - General admission.
