Sponsored by: 

                     Please join the Northwestern Psychoanalytic Society & Insititue for this special event!

We are pleased to invite the mental health community of Seattle and the surrounding area, to get together to meet twelve of our local "mental health authors" and celebrate their writings and creativity!


This will be a place where professionals subscribing to different psychoanalytic theories will come together to learn about some of the excellent books that have been written right here in the Seattle area. Twelve authors from Seattle have been invited by NPSI to present brief descriptions of their published books, giving us the unique opportunity to hear directly from each author and engage them with our questions and comments.


We will finish the event with wine, snacks and a toast to our local authors, their productivity and the joy of gathering together to grow our mental health community and our friendships within it.


Copies of the books will be available for purchase and author signings.
