Transforming Trauma:  A Story of Tragedy and Triumph –
The Power of the Relational Unconscious and “Chemistry”
in the Treatment of a Paraplegic Patient

Presenter:  Claire Beth Steinberger
Discussants: Judith Rappaport and Loveleen Posmentier

Sunday, December 7, 2014
6:00 – 7:30 PM

at NPAP, 40 West 13 Street* 
This emotionally evocative (analytic) journey builds on the analyst’s etiological contributions and “self” experience and the co-created enactments, symbols and metaphors that emerge spontaneously in the dyadic and contextual field.  An eclectic perspective that illuminates the analyst’s role-receptivity encompasses classical, object relations, relational, systems, and self-psychological paradigms.   
The evening’s presentation will honor the life and achievements of NPAP colleague and friend, Dr. Janet Finell, who passed away on October 6, 2014.
