    Allan Schore

    The San Joaquin Valley Psychological Association and the Sullivan Center for Children are pleased to announce a special CE event featuring preeminent neuroscientist, psychologist, and educator, Dr. Allan N. Schore.

    Dr. Schore is on the clinical faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, and at the UCLA Center for Culture, Brain, and Development.  He is the author of four seminal volumes related to affect regulation, disorders of the self, and psychotherapy, as well as numerous articles and chapters.  He is past editor of the Norton series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, and a reviewer or on the editorial staff of 45 journals across a number of scientific and clinical disciplines. His Regulation Theory, grounded in developmental neuroscience and developmental psychoanalysis, focuses on the origin, psychopathogenesis, and psychotherapeutic treatment of the early forming subjective implicit self.

    Dr. Schore has received an Award for Outstanding Contributions to Practice in Trauma Psychology from the Division of Trauma Psychology and the Scientific Award from the Division of Psychoanalysis of the American Psychological Association.  He is also an honorary Member of the American Psychoanalytic Association, and recipient of the Reiss-Davis Child Study Center Award for outstanding contributions to Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

    His most recent publication, The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy, offers a representative collection of essential expansions and elaborations of regulation theory, since 2005.  The book represents contributions to affect regulation therapy (ART) and clinical neuropsychoanalysis, as well as his ongoing work in developmental affective neuroscience and developmental neuropsychiatry.

     ** Early Bird Registration available until August 27th 2017**
