The Magic Years of Selma Fraiberg: Clinician, Researcher, and Writer – A conference in honor of her 100th birthday
September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Selma Fraiberg’s integration of social work and psychoanalysis had a profound impact on
infant mental health, child development, psychoanalysis, and the larger community.
Beginning with group work with disadvantaged children and an unconventional
psychoanalytic training, Fraiberg’s interventions with blind children, her groundbreaking
innovations in infant mental health, and her prolific writings–including her classic work, The
Magic Years–have left a lasting legacy.
