Presented by Maria Ellen Chiaia, Ph.D. Drawing from clinical and theoretical material, we will focus on the importance of being and the role of silence in analytic work with children. As the child tells his or her story through play and interaction with the therapist, we in turn imagine and empathize with the child in their world and in the wordless spaces between us.
