Event description
Long-Term Therapy in the Rear-View Mirror: 'Evidence' From My 40-year Career

About this Event

About the Presentation:

Market values are now deeply embedded in the practice of psychotherapy and our ideas about what is considered 'evidence' have become increasingly constricted. This presentation, by letting the patients' words speak directly to the audience, provides clinical 'evidence' that demonstrates how long-term therapy profoundly affected the lives of four deeply troubled individuals.

William S. Meyer, MSW is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Ob/Gyn at Duke University Medical Center.  He has practiced and taught psychotherapy to trainees from psychiatry and clinical social work for decades. He is a past-president of the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work and was honored with their Lifetime Achievement Award. He is on the faculty of the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas, The University of North Carolina and Smith College.  He is on the editorial boards of Clinical Social Work and Psychoanalytic Social Work and he is particularly proud of the many presentations he has made across the country that focused on the painful history of the relationship between psychiatry and the LGBT community. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards from sources as varied as the Council on Social Work Education; the American Psychoanalytic Association;  Smith College School for Social Work; and in 2020 he was the recipient of the William S. Meyer Teaching Award, granted by the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas, an award so named in his honor.
