The Riggs Blog
The Riggs Blog is a mix of news about clinical work, research and educational activities from the Austen Riggs Center, as well as a source for information beyond our walls that we find interesting and thought-provoking.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Austen Riggs Center, Lisa A. Raskin, PhD is pleased to announce that Andrew J. Gerber, MD, PhD, will be the next medical director/CEO for the Austen Riggs Center. Dr. Gerber will begin his appointment on July 1, 2015.
Austen Riggs held a blog competition among staff members where we asked them to write about what makes Riggs unique. This is the second blog in the series, written by one of our Admissions Coordinators Nicki May.
On November 9-10, the Erikson Institute for Education and Research at the Austen Riggs Center hosted a working conference entitled Psychodynamic Training in Psychology: Crises, Challenges, and Opportunities. Attendees consisted of individuals from 22 psychodynamically oriented training programs in the USA and Canada.
We offer a two-year Fellowship in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and a four-year Fellowship in advanced psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalytic studies.
