“Brain and Mind, Self and Other: A Neuropsychoanalytic Perspective on Emotion, Fantasy, and Inhibition in Clinical Work”

In this talk, Dr. Zellner will give a lively overview of affective neuroscience, and offer a neuropsychoanalytic model of the dynamic interaction between our “pre-wired” natures and our childhood experiences.  Then she will explore, through some clinical vignettes, how our emotional selves become regulated, in both health and dysfunction, by the rules learned in families and cultures, manifested in fantasies and predictions about self and other.
