Study Shows Connection Between Armed Conflict and Birth Weights
Sponsored by the Margaret S. Mahler Foundation and The Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. The Miller Theater, Columbia University, New York, NY.
On October 1, 2011 Columbia University's Miller Theater was filled with about 200 therapists, social workers, psychiatrists and researchers for a day-long conference to discuss new evidence that suggests consciousness and nociception during prenatal development. A wealth of discussion regarding the implications for advanced medicine, such as prenatal surgery, was also introduced, as well as potential challenges for the integration of this thinking into mainstream knowledge.
