Oxford-Style Debate with Rachel Blass, PhD and Mark Solms, PhD
"This house believes that neuroscience has nothing to contribute to the clinical practice of psychoanalysis."
In this Oxford-Style Debate, the audience will vote for or against the above motion before the presentations begin and then, again, afterward. Each speaker will present his/her case (about 20 mins each), respond to the other's case (about 10 mins each), and take questions from the floor (about 20 mins). The aim is to see who swayed the audience more in what will surely be an exciting and unpredictable debate.
Mark Solms will present first, Rachel Blass second, and Lois Oppenheim will moderate.
No CME or CE credits offered.
This event is supported by a grant from the IPA CAPSA Fund.
