We invite you to take part in the first of seven meetings, one each month, beginning September 17, 2020. The starting point for these meetings is Johnathan Shedler’s seminal article, “The Efficacy of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy” (2010). (Shedler's 2010 article and other related articles are available for free download from A panel (Robertson, Harris, and Waide) and various special guests will guide each discussion. For the September meeting, our special guest speaker will be Jeff Binder, Ph.D.

The first meeting will provide an overview of Shedler’s 2010 article, some discussion of responses to it, and a brief introduction to the seven distinctive features of psychodynamic technique. The following six meetings will expand on the features Shedler outlines in his article. Registration on this website is required, along with a $10.00 fee. Meetings will begin at 7:00PM and end at 8:30PM. We recommend that you read the Shedler article, which you can download here.
