Join Irma Brenman Pick and Penelope Garvey for an exploration of Brenman Pick’s collected works, “Authenticity in the Psychoanalytic Encounter” (edited by M Fakhry Davids and Naomi Shavit, Routledge, 2018).

In this important body of work, Brenman Pick presents vivid clinical narratives that demonstrate her interest in the early roots of conflict in her patients, and her skill in addressing these in the here-and-now of the psychoanalytic encounter. Using the book as a touchpoint, the conversation will explore her original contributions to psychoanalytic thinking in areas such as countertransference, authenticity, adolescence and sexual identity.

Irma Brenman Pick is a Distinguished Fellow, Supervising and Training Analyst and former President of the British Psychoanalytical Society.
