Event description

Description


What are the clinician’s guiding principles when confronted with issues related to morality? In raising this question, Freudian (superego) and post-Freudian (values and ideals) concepts as well as the analyst's subjectivity in the treatment process will be examined. How do political systems affect one's individual sense of morality? Nazi Germany and the Chinese Cultural Revolution will be explored, tracing the psychological changes that are made possible by steady exposure to a charismatic demagogue and to brainwashing.

This event offers 4 CE contact hours for LMSW/LCSW, LP, LMHC; APA.
