The Psychiatric Clinical Faculty Association’s
2019 Distinguished Psychiatrist Lecture

Due to a family emergency, Dr. Daniel Carlat has had to cancel his trip to Los Angeles to participate in PCFA’s Distinguished Psychiatrist Seminar Series. In his place, our colleague and fellow PCFA member, Jonathan Salk, M.D., has graciously agreed to step in to deliver this year’s Distinguished Psychiatrist Lecture.

Integrating Psychopharmacology, Psychotherapy and Development: The Joy of Psychiatry
Saturday, October 19, 2019
10:30 AM – 12:30PM
UCLA Faculty Center

Dr. Salk is Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. He is currently in full-time private practice, but also lectures, writes and teaches the theory and practice of psychiatry. He has a particular interest in the effects of experience and trauma on human development. Dr. Salk is Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council and a member of the Advisory Board of the Population Media Center. He is also the author of A New Reality: Human Evolution for a Sustainable Future, an updated, revised and redesigned version of the 1981 book of that title that he wrote with his father, Jonas Salk.

In this year’s lecture, through case examples and theory, Dr. Salk will discuss the blending boundaries across various therapeutic modalities and their  integration in clinical practice. Among these modalities and orientations, he will address psychopharmacology, cognitive behavioral perspective, psychoanalytical/relationship oriented psychotherapy, expressive and experiential processes, trauma, family systems approach, and broader social implications of what we do as psychiatrists.

The lecture is free and open to all mental health professionals.
