Finding the Unfound: The Convergence of Psychodynamic Principles and Neuropsychology in the Understanding and Treatment of Asperger's Syndrome

Psychoanalysts William Singletary (Philadelphia), Susan Sherkow (New York) and Katharine Gould (Chicago) will present clinical work with toddlers, children and young adults diagnosed with Asperger’s. Neuropsychologist Laeeq Evered (San Francisco Bay Area) will discuss Asperger’s from the perspective of neurobiology, expanding insight into the world of those living with Asperger’s and their families. Moderated by Joseph Schaller, PsyD: Clinical Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist.

Please join us in a discussion as we think about psychodynamic treatment models and the way that they are inextricably intertwined with the neurological aspects of the disorder.
