Special thanks to William Cornell and the "Keeping Our Work Alive Series"
PPC for an evening with Swiss psychoanalyst and psychologist, Danielle Quinodoz. She is author of numerous articles, and three
books. She was awarded the Sacredoti Prize in 1989, and the Prix Psychologie, in 1995 for her first book. She will be presenting
the conscious and unconscious difficulties that limit therapists’ ability to help patients reconstruct their internal
past while also listening sensitively to current and future needs. Helping individuals to see their lives through the chronology
of different phases, may help them to integrate joyful and painful experiences and provide a journey of self-discovery.
Discussant William Cornell, MA, Private Practice. Appropriate for all audiences.
“People react differently to the process of aging. Some people shy away from old age for as long as they
can and eventually spend it reflecting on times when they were physically and mentally stronger and more independent. For
others old age is embraced as a new adventure and something to look forward to.”
- Danielle Quinodoz
