For the Community
The Institute's community Lectures & Seminars program breaks new ground every season, offering psychoanalytic insights into the many dimensions of human experience: art, politics, literature, family, relationships, the stages of life, masculinity/femininity, work, love, and human passions. The format varies from discussions around lunch to large lectures. The lively Celluloid Couch Series and pre-performance discussions of Shakespeare in the Park entertain and enlighten.
Our academic year is quiet for the summer, but courses begin again in August for the 2013-2014 season. Keep checking our website for updates.

KEEPING YOUR CHILD IN MIND:
The Mindful Way to Solve Everyday Behavior Problems -
From Infancy through Adolescence
CLAUDIA M. GOLD, MD
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2013 7:00 P.M.
Being understood by someone we love is one of the most positive, powerful feelings we can have at any age. For a young child, it is also the most important of all experiences, because it encourages the child's mind and sense of self to grow. When children feely truly heard and validated, they learn to understand, and eventually control themselves.
Guided by the most current research in child development, together with more than twenty years' experience practicing pediatrics, Dr. Gold focuses not on "what to do" but rather on "how to be" with a child.
Claudia M. Gold, MD, is a pediatrician with a long-standing interest in addressing children's mental health needs in a preventive model. She currently runs the Early Childhood Social-Emotional Health Program at Newton-Wellesly Hospital. Dr. Gold is on the faculty of the Brazelton Institute and the Berkshire Psychoanalytic Institute. Her book, Keeping Your Child in Mind: Overcoming Defiance, Tantrums and Other Everyday Behavior Problems by Seeing the World through Your Child's Eyes, is a short, insightful guide, backed by new research in developmental psychology and attachment theory, and vivid stories from her practice that all caregivers will recognize, which shows how to keep a child's perspective in mind and deepen this central relationship in their lives.
