interdisciplinary studies of neuroscience, psychiatry, psychology, and psychoanalysis. We are happy to carry out this role in both national and international organizations in Istanbul. Here is some news from our city:

1.   On 8-11 March 2010, Dr. Rise VanFleet, the director of the Family Enhancement and Play Therapy Center, Pennsylvania, and Filiz Çetin, who works as a psychological counselor and play therapist at Nisan Psychotherapy Center, Istanbul, gave an “Intensive Filial Therapy Training” in Dublin. There were 13 participants attending from England, India, and Ireland. Besides the filial therapy approach, the universal value of play across all cultures and the effect of parent-child play on creating attachment via right-hemisphere interactions were also discussed during the whole training.

2.   On 31 May 2010, Prof. Mark Solms—the founder and co-chair of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society—was welcomed to Istanbul to give a conference on “Dreams: A Neuropsychoanalytic Perspective.” Fatma Gökçe Özkarar, Gülbin Tüter, and Serap Altekin from the Doku Psychotherapy Center ( organized the conference at the Istanbul branch of the Turkish Psychological Association. Those who attended were mostly clinical practitioners interested in learning about mechanisms of dreams and neuropsychoanalysis.
