Sheldon Bach, PhD “Some Thoughts on Trust and Betrayal” Registration strongly recommended (see below)

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Scientific Presentation

Beginning in infancy, trust is an experience that spans relationships. Opposing trust and belief are
betrayal and cynicism. In the current sociopolitical context that includes mistrust and pessimism, Dr.
Sheldon Bach explores the role of trust in development as well as in the psychoanalytic situation. He
will also historically examine how conflict between Freud and Ferenczi has engendered ongoing
organizational mistrust and betrayal within the field of psychoanalysis.
Learning Objectives:
• Attendees will be better able to describe the normal line of development of trust.
• Participants will better understand the importance of trust in the analytic situation.
• Learners will better comprehend the pivotal position of the disagreement between Freud and
Ferenczi in the history of the development of psychoanalytic organizations.


Admission is Free. Fee for 2 CME credits: $30 for NOBPC members; $50 non-members
