The Jeremy D. Safran Memorial Conference

On April 2nd 2023, the Jeremy D. Safran Memorial Conference, hosted by the Sándor Ferenczi Center, will celebrate the scholarship, teaching, and supervision of Jeremy Safran, whose wide-ranging intellectual curiosity led to significant contributions in many areas of scholarly inquiry. The conference will host scholars in conversation with a variety of these contributions, with panels engaging Safran’s pedagogy and central foci of his work, including the relational tradition, psychotherapy research and integration, Buddhism and psychoanalysis, and spiritual concepts and psychotherapy. Through this meeting we seek to foster revitalized conversation around central themes in Jeremy’s work and teaching.
