IARPP Offering - Reading Philip Bromberg

February 08, 2021 12:48 PM | Russel (Trey) Thompson (Administrator)

Reading Philip Brombert

A 6 session reading group on the work of Philip Bromberg

Colleagues of Philip Bromberg have joined together to offer a program to discuss and celebrate Bromberg’s work.  There will be a series of six, monthly, online group discussion meetings, each focused on a single article of Bromberg’s, followed in July by a larger memorial to Bromberg’s life and work (the details of the larger memorial will be announced shortly).  All these meetings are accessible to members of all the professional communities across the analytic and trauma worlds who have followed Bromberg’s work over the decades.  

Each of the monthly online reading group meetings will be a discussion of a paper selected by the group leader(s), who are all people who Bromberg deeply influenced.  These meetings began in February and will continue monthly through July. 

Attendance is free.  To facilitate discussion, attendance at each group meeting will be limited to 25 people. Due to high demand, please only sign up for one meeting, as available. Each meeting will be announced about one month before it is to take place.

PROCESS: We are doing registration for one session at a time. Sessions further along in the schedule will be open for registration about one month prior to being held. The registration link is appended just below the description of the seminar (see: REGISTRATION) and is for that seminar only.

SCHEDULE: Sundays from 1-2:30 p.m. (New York City time) (to accommodate an international audience)
