FARRELL SILVERBERG, CURRENT PRESIDENT
Farrell Silverberg, Ph.D., N.C.Psy.A., joined IFPE in 2007. He has served on IFPE’s Board of Directors, on the Board of Trustees of the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis (NAAP), and has chaired Social Responsibility committees for both organizations. He co-chaired IFPE’s 2013 conference (with Past President Judith Vida) and is chair of IFPE’s 2014 conference committee. Reflecting IFPE’s openness to many viewpoints, Farrell brings an amalgam of orientations, and is a supervising and training psychoanalyst at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis (PSP). He has published in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is the first Westerner trained in Taopsychotherapy’s heart-to-heart approach. His writings include: The Tao of self psychology and Resonance and exchange in contemplative psychotherapy. Farrell co-authored research papers on psychoanalytic efficacy, authored a book distilling psychoanalysis into lay language, and translated works of António Coimbra de Matos (a 2012 IFPE Distinguished Educator from Portugal). The electronic "door" to his office is always open to communications from IFPE members. Email: IFPE President.
