On Thursday, May 31, 2018, The American Turkish Society organized a panel titled, Psychotherapy in Turkey and The United States. The event was hosted by The Society’s board member, William J. Parker, at the EastWest Institute in Manhattan.
We were thrilled to have Tahir Ozakkas, M.D., Ph.D., Mustafa Tuncer, specialized clinical psychologist and Jeffrey Magnavita, Ph.D. as speakers and Goksin Ozkarahan, M.D. as our moderator. During the panel, participants gained valuable information about how psychotherapy evolved in Turkey and U.S's role in its evolution. Mustafa talked about what the striking cultural differences were in treating patients with personality disorders in both countries. Tahir took us back in history by explaining how he founded the Psychotherapy Institute in Istanbul with the help and support of many important American psychotherapists. Following the panel, participants enjoyed a reception prepared by Sipsak restaurant and a musical performance by Mustafa Tuncer’s daughter, violinist, İlke Işı Tuncer.
The Society is renowned for providing high-level events that shed light on US-Turkey relations. In this regard, the Ambassador Series is a signature event that hosts American and Turkish Ambassadors to discuss issues of current importance.
The Society is proud to host H.E. Mr. Feridun H. Sinirlioğlu for a luncheon lecture at the Knickerbocker Club near Midtown in Manhattan. The topic is "Turkish Foreign Policy", as Ambassador Sinirlioglu has a depth of experience in foreign affairs. Before assuming his current post in 2016, he previously served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2015 and the Undersecretary for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Ankara since 2009.
