Riggs Fellow Heather Churchill, PsyD, to Present on Psychoanalysis at her Alma Mater, Colorado College
Colorado College alumna and current Riggs Fellow in Advanced Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalytic Studies Heather Churchill, PsyD, has been invited by her alma mater to speak about psychoanalysis and the work done at Riggs.
Colorado College received a grant to bring psychoanalysis to their campus. Knowing of Dr. Churchill’s work, they invited her to present. While she is on-campus, Dr. Churchill will be giving a clinical case presentation in the class Philosophy and Psychoanalysis, answering questions in the college career center and giving a talk titled “Psychoanalysis and the Treatment of Severely Disturbed Souls.”
“It would be great if people became more interested in a career in clinical psychology, or started to think about analytic training. And even if they are not interested in a clinical career, I hope I can also speak to the ways psychoanalytic theory can be applicable across disciplines,” Dr. Churchill said, reflecting on what she hopes her visit will accomplish. She continued, saying, “I also hope to correct some of the misconceptions about psychoanalysis, as well as some of the stereotypes that are often taught in undergraduate studies.”
Dr. Churchill’s talk, “Psychoanalysis and the Treatment of Severely Disturbed Souls,” will be held Friday, November 6 from 3:30-5:00pm at Colorado College in Gaylord Hall (main floor of Worner Campus Center, 902 N. Cascade Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO). For more information, click here.
