The group will read, study, and discuss books and papers by distinguished authors and researchers that explore some of the seminal concepts and clinical issues in neuropsychoanalytically informed psychotherapy. During the academic year 2022-22, we will be reading selected chapters of the book Affect Regulation Theory: A Clinical Model by Daniel Hill (2015) W.W. Norton & Company, New York. This book is a readable, clinically-based compilation of contemporary research and theory related to affect regulation – how humans regulate their emotions. As a central element of optimal human development and functioning, affect regulation is a central focus of psychoanalysis and other forms of psychotherapy. While this book draws heavily on the theories of Allan Schore, it integrates attachment theory, affective neurobiology, cognitive neurobiology, mother-infant studies, and developmental psychoanalysis. For January 6, we will discuss the following sections of the book:
Chapter 4: “The Neurobiology of the Primary Affect-Regulating System,” pp. 68-82
Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Differentiate the primary characteristics of right brain processing and left-brain processing.
– Explicate the “adaptive advantage” of right brain/left brain integration and flexibility.
– Explain the difference between Implicit and Explicit Memory.

The Edith Laufer Neuropsychoanalytic Clinical Study Center provides emotional support in the next step of your recovery process after a brain injury.
Our licensed professionals treat the symptoms and psychological sequelae of stroke, TBIs, and other brain injuries. These symptoms may include depression, anxiety, identity issues and the feeling that you are just not your old self. After medical intervention and rehab, the next step is to address the psychological, social, familial and environmental challenges. When changes in the brain occur, these changes also affect how we feel about ourselves and how we relate to family and friends.
Our licensed clinicians are trained and highly experienced in this next step of the recovery process. The brain has an innate neuroplasticity and we are here to facilitate your recovery and to enhance your sense of well-being.
What We Offer
Brain-injured patients often experience symptoms of depression, anxiety and a sense that they are not the person they once were. Often they find that psychological services are not available to them after they complete their rehabilitation treatment.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy can help these individuals reduce their psychological symptoms and reestablish a sense of identity and well-being.
In the psychotherapeutic process, we work with you to facilitate your recovery and to reestablish a sense of self.
We are licensed clinical social workers, psychologists and psychoanalysts, collaborating with an educational consultant and a neurologist.
The Center’s licensed clinicians provide ongoing education, facilitate reading groups, give presentations at national and international conferences and contribute to scholarly journals.
