Scientific Meeting
1:00 - 4:00 pm
San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP), San Francisco

The hallmark of psychodynamic treatment is a focus on psychological patterns and processes that underlie overt symptoms — in other words, personality dynamics. In his lecture, “Personality Pathways to Depression,” Dr. Shedler will discuss the personality styles and syndromes most often seen in clinical practice (narcissistic, borderline, obsessive-compulsive, etc.), describe how each personality style represents a unique pathway to “depression” that requires a distinct treatment focus, and offer clinical strategies for deepening treatment.
