The San Antonio Society for Psychoanalytic Studies is excited to announce that Drs. David and Jill Scharff will be our presenters at this year's Fall Workshop, which will be held on Friday, November 6 from 8:30am to 4:30pm, in the Grossman International Conference Center at the University of the Incarnate Word.

David and Jill Savage Scharff, psychoanalysts, developed the object relations approaches to couple and family therapy.  In addition to writing seminal books on these approaches, they are the co-founders of the International Psychotherapy Institute in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  For more information about the Scharffs' approach to couple and family therapy and their teaching style during the workshop, please refer to "Talking with David and Jill Scharff" on the SASPS website.   

The SASPS Fall Workshop will be an interactive experience with video demonstrations, participatory exercises, and lecture.  The workshop will be divided into two sessions.  The morning session will provide an introduction to object relations couple and family therapy, followed by a case example as illustrated by a couple with sexual difficulty and a history of developmental trauma.  The afternoon session will focus on the the interpersonal unconscious within the context of family therapy, followed by a case example as illustrated by a family with two young children demonstrating the unconscious transmission of intergenerational issues.
