    New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute's (NYPSI) is recognized by Time
    Out New York as offering one of the twenty best lecture series in the
    city. NYPSI's mission is to provide the highest level of psychoanalytic
    training to mental health professionals, promote excellence in
    psychoanalytic research and offer a range of educational, advisory and
    affordable therapeutic service programs to the New York City community.
    NYPSI's position as the oldest psychoanalytic organization in the Americas
    parallels its global leadership role in the history of psychoanalysis and
    its influence on the cultural and intellectual life of New York City. The
    Society was founded in 1911 by A.A. Brill, one of the first practicing
    psychoanalysts in the United States and the first translator of Freud into
    Another Kind of Evidence (authored by Norbert Freedman, Marvin Hurvich and
    Rhonda Ward with Jessie Geller and Joan Hoffenberg) describes a decade of
    conceptual and process research within the IPTAR Program of Empirical
    Research Studies. Presented in three parts, Another Kind of Evidence provides
    innovative perspectives on concepts familiar to the practicing analyst.

    In Part I, the authors report how, after termination of
    treatment, the patient thinks about, remembers, and takes on within
    themselves and plays out the relationship with their analyst.

    In Part II, the authors report how traumatic moments in a patient's life
    are observed in both short and long term psychoanalytic therapy during
    “nodal” moments in the transference The authors introduce a “propositional
    method” which allows the analyst to organize clinical observations
    systematically in order to make inferences about the nature of what is
    happening in the psychoanalysis.

    In Part III, the authors examine a sequence of 25 sessions from a recorded
    psychoanalysis and discuss how symbolization evolves and leads to "working
    through". They view symbolization as a synthesizing of the forces involved
    in the interplay between what goes on in the mind of the patient and what
    goes on within the relationship between the patient and the analyst.

    This evening's discussion is presented by the NYPSI-Academic Joint Research
    Seminar, established in 2008 as an important aspect of the mission of the
    Research Center to build bridges with other academic research centers. The
    NYPSI-Academic Joint Research Seminar meets approximately twice a year to
    discuss the work of noted visitors.

    This evening is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Norbert Freedman, a beloved
    senior colleague, who was the moving force for the research
    activities at IPTAR as well as at many other institutions.
