FARMINGTON HILLS – Dr. Sidney H. Phillips from Yale University will address issues in same-sex relationships on May 13 at 8 p.m. at the Michigan Psychoanalytic Center in Farmington Hills. The talk is titled, “For Better and Worse in Gay Relationships: Psychoanalytic Reflections.”
According to a flyer for the event, “Homosexual individuals are as capable as heterosexual ones of intimate relationships. Unconscious conflict about homosexuality, however, can interfere with the ability of gay men and lesbian women to form and sustain such relationships. Because of such conflicts, they may be unable to integrate affectionate and sexual currents within a single relationship – similar to the symptomatic picture we see in our heterosexual patients.”
Dr. Phillips is a Training and Supervising Analyst at Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis and Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine. He is the author of many professional publications in psychoanalysis. Dr. Phillips lives in New England with his partner of 20 years and their 8 year old son. The event is free and open to the public.
The Michigan Psychoanalytic Center is located at 32841 Middlebelt Road in suite 411 in Farmington Hills. Call 248-851-3380 for more information.
