Center Seminar Series

Psychoanalysis and the Broken Mind



The post-stroke mind needs to heal in order to regain the function of a life involving a personal past, a personal present, and a personal future.  This seminar will discuss the trauma to memory pre and post-stroke, and will illuminate the exciting innovative techniques available in our community to save the mind and allow the patient to experience a meaningful future.

 Learning Objectives:

 After attending this session, participants should be able to:

        1.  Describe how psychoanalysis is involved in the healing process of stroke recovery.

        2.  Discuss how cognitive processing is not possible without memory.
