    Incorporation of psychoanalytic treatment into the world of evidence-based care

    Tuesday, April 29, 2014
    8:00 PM

    This Academic Research Seminar will be the Kupferstein Memorial Lecture presented by Barbara Milrod, M.D.

    Dr. Milrod will review central research avenues she has pursued. She will discuss her outcome studies in Panic Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (PFPP), the only psychoanalytically-based psychotherapy to meet evidence-based treatment criteria for an anxiety disorder. She will describe newer research endeavors, including some of her early formulations on separation anxiety and attachment. She will also highlight work that she has just begun to develop, involving dissemination of dynamic based therapies to community settings.

    RSVP is closed for this event.

She is currently developing and testing a psychoanalytic psychotherapy for non-responders with anxiety disorders and depression with her NARSAD Distinguished Investigator Award.

    The Leon Kupferstein Memorial Award for Innovation in Psychoanalysis was established in 2006 in honor of Dr. Leon Kupferstein, a graduate and past-President of the then New York Psychoanalytic Society (2001 - 2003). Dr. Kupferstein was a dedicated student of Sigmund Freud, but also possessed a firm belief that the art and science of psychoanalysis must move forward and respond to new discoveries about the human condition.

    The inaugural recipient of NYPSI's Leon Kupferstein Memorial Award for Innovation in Psychoanalysis was Dr. Kupferstein's mentor and colleague, Dr. Charles Brenner. Dr. Kupferstein wished that Dr. Brenner be honored for his long-standing commitment and considerable body of work that has contributed so significantly to the current understanding and practice of psychoanalysis and its enduring value.
