Dr. Thomson has taught at the University of Virginia medical school Department of
Psychiatry for many decades and has been a celebrated mentor for literally hundreds
of trainees in dynamic psychiatry. He is also a charter member of the Virginia
Psychoanalytic society and has been a frequent presenter on a variety of topics. The
idea of a “gathering” is primarily a tribute to his creative thoughts on teaching.
Dr. Van Slyke, captain in the United States Navy, is the only psychoanalyst at the
present time in the Navy. He is the sole psychiatric consultant to the submarine fleet,
and in the past has been director of psychiatry residency training and the chair of the
department of mental health at Naval Medical Center, Portsmouth.
Dr. Blackman is a professor of psychiatry at Eastern Virginia Medical School and
distinguished professor of mental health at Shanxi medical University in Taiyuan,
China. Also a supervising and training analyst at the Freudian Society in Washington
DC, he has taught trainees of different backgrounds for several decades.
