Charles Brenner’s (1913-2008) recent death deprived the psychoanalytic world of one of its towering
figures. As theorist, clinician, supervisor, consultant, and teacher, Dr. Brenner had a profound impact on
every aspect of psychoanalysis. Shortly after his death the New York Psychoanalytic Institute held a
memorial meeting during which family, friends, colleagues, students, and former patients shared personal
reminiscences of Charlie. This meeting will be different and will be comprised of discussions of his
scientific and clinical contributions.
After this meeting, attendees will have a familiarity with the scientific and clinical contributions to
psychoanalysis of the late Charles Brenner.
