Event Description

Does Psychoanalysis Work? A lunchtime talk with Dr. Robert Galatzer-Levy

We joke about the interminable length of psychoanalysis and the real difficulty of demonstrating tangible and quantifiable progress. But is this the reason that approaches to mental health that emphasize practical steps and chemical intervention have risen above the slow task of self-examination?

Free and open to the public! *Lunch is available for the first 30 people to RSVP by emailing*

Robert Galatzer-Levy, MD is on the faculties of the University of Chicago Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, and the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. He is co-author of numerous books on psychoanalysis and social science, and provides psychiatric services, including evaluations, psycho-therapy and psychoanalysis to adults, children and adolescents.
