Our group has been involved in consolidating its advanced clinical training program through the integration of neuroscientific and neuropsychoanalytic data.
We also finalized the French translation of Allan Schore's Affect Regulation and the Repair of the Self. The book was published by Les Éditions du CIG and came out on 30 October 2008, to coincide with Allan Schore's visit to Montreal (see below), and 500 copies were sold in less than 48 hours! It is currently in reprint.
We were centrally involved at the organizational and scientific levels in the preparation of the 2008 National Conference of the Quebec Order of Psychologists. Allan Schore gave the keynote address, “The Brain and Psychotherapy,” to an audience of 700 psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals. The next day, he conducted a 6-hour workshop on the topic: “Affect Regulation: An Essential Element of Psychotherapy.” It was attended by a full house of 300. The day following that, our group lead an integration workshop entitled “Neuroscience and Psychotherapy: What Difference Does It Make?” It too was attended by a full house of 150.
We continue to be solicited by universities and mental health facilities to lecture and supervise therapists in the process of integrating recent neuroscientific and neuropsychoanalytic data into the therapeutic process.
A chapter entitled “Une neurodynamique du Self en dialogue thérapeutique” [Neurodynamic dimensions of the self in therapeutic dialogue] written by Gilles Delisle, Ph.D., will appear in Cerveau et psychothérapie [The brain and psychotherapy], to be published in the spring of 2009. The book is edited by Joel Monzée, Ph.D., and is published by Éditions Liber, Montréal.
Projects for 2009 include a presentation at the annual convention of the Quebec Psychiatrists Association, in June. Our Paris group is currently working on a conference to be held in May 2010 where, again, Allan Schore would give a one-day workshop, followed by our own.
A joint research project is currently being considered with the Montreal Psychoneuro Institute, which would investigate a number of neural variables involved in the psychotherapeutic dialogue.
