An overflow crowd of students, faculty, and alumni gathered to hear Dr. Jeremy Safran give his talk on Mindfulness, Enactment, and Affect Regulation at the second Roger Peterson Distinguished Speakers Series on October 3rd at Antioch New England. Dr. Safran is Professor of Psychology at the New School for Social Research in New York City and author of numerous books on psychotherapy including Negotiating the Therapeutic Alliance: A Relational Treatment Guide with Dr. Chris Muran. Dr. Safran first offered a framework for his clinical practice and research, and then engaged the audience with conversation around video clips of psychotherapy that focused on his relational psychodynamic perspective. It was a marvelous coming together of people and ideas, which is what we hope for from the Speaker Series.
