Description: New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute's Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis division continues the "Dialogues on..." series of discussions with leading child development experts.
Dr. Josephine Wright is a Child and Adult Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst on the teaching faculties of New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute and Berkshire Psychoanalytic Institute. She has practiced for more than thirty years in both Manhattan and Connecticut with adults, children, and families suffering from a variety of issues and has developed particular interests in adoption and in the complex interactions of emotional, psychological, and social development in young people with learning and executive function problems such as ADHD. She has consulted widely to schools, including boarding schools in New England and has published articles on these issues in several professional journals. She is the author of the influential "Do We Really Need Ritalin: A Family Guide to ADHD" (HarperCollins, 1997).
With the "Dialogues on..." series of discussions and Q&A, the NYC community has access to child development experts on relevant and pressing topics. The events are free and open to the public and are an integral part of NYPSI's commitment to community outreach. "Dialogues on..." events are geared towards professionals and parents who are involved with the care of children in the school and home environments. Educators, school administrators, community leaders, grandparents, and parents are welcome to attend. The "Dialogues on..." series is made possible by a generous donation to NYSPI from The Poses Family Foundation. Additional funding was received from The James and Judith K. Dimon Foundation in honor of Ms. Themis Dimon.
