In addition, Scientific Programs and Conferences featured throughout the academic year provide an opportunity to learn from LAISPS members and candidates as well as local, national, and international psychoanalysts as they present original psychoanalytic papers and provide more in-depth study of special topics. These educational programs address contemporary, cutting-edge topics as well as theoretical issues in psychoanalytic technique, and are designed to be of value to therapists with all levels of clinical experience.
