She is a member of Black Psychoanalysts Speak, and an honorary member of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR). She is a 2018 scholar of the NYU Psychoanalytic Society.

Presentation Description: How increasing awareness of your experiences both in and outside of the session are enhanced when the analyst becomes aware of what she thinks and feels about what she sees in her world. Becoming aware of the presence of others seeing you being seen by them and you becoming aware that these others see you seeing them with all the associative material that comes with the times we live in now.  Dr. Jones will discuss an example of how all of this flows through her work. She will also present several vignettes for attendees to think about and discuss.

This presentation is designed for mental health professionals, including psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers, with no regular registration fee. View the entire schedule for the 2018-19 Friday Night Guest Lecture Series.
