Honoring our Roots: Grounding CPP in a Deeper Understanding of Core Psychoanalytic Principles,

with Alicia Lieberman, PhD and Lisa Mennet, PhD


Join us in conversation with Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Mennet as we deepen our understanding of core psychoanalytic principles and examine how they guide CPP interventions. We will explore clinical formulations from a psychoanalytic framework and highlight how classic psychoanalytic concepts inform therapeutic responses, particularly when families have experienced complex, intergenerational, and/or historical trauma.

Closing Keynote:

Integrating Our Notes from the Margin: Branching Out into the Future,

with Chandra Ghosh Ippen, PhD and Alicia Lieberman, PhD


As we deepen our appreciation of core psychoanalytic concepts, how do we consciously “brown” those concepts, meaning broadening our lens and integrating a historical, sociocultural-perspective into our psychodynamic case formulations.


Notes from the margins refers to the comments many of us often make in the margins of books and research articles, our imagined dialogue  with formative theoreticians of core psychoanalytic concepts. Examples include questions related to how we broaden ghosts in the nursery to ghosts in society, angels in the nursery to ancestral angels, defenses against unbearable affect to defenses against unbearable societal experiences. As we extend our branches and spread our work, how do we deepen our dialogue so that we embrace the importance of the family’s past, our country’s past, and the past history between and among our cultural groups.
