At more frequent intervals, MIP’s Program Committee offers a series of Scientific Presentations, panels, and workshops on Saturday mornings on the Cambridge Hospital grounds. As a comparative institute, speakers and discussants are paired to represent different theoretical viewpoints on a given topic. Discussion with the audience is always provocative and evocative as a consequence. Internationally and nationally recognized authors and researchers are recruited to share their passionate interests and clinical work with our membership. A particular effort is made to generate programs on subjects that are underrepresented in our training program or very different from the reigning consensus in our geographical area. Interdisciplinary subjects, such as psychoanalysis and social action, psychoanalysis in literature, art and theater, and intersections with brain sciences are popular as well.
