This panel offered participants a series of frames to better appreciate psychopathology and the role of relationships in real-world conflict situations. It also examined characteristics of psychopathology, as well as the relational context in which clinical problem solving takes place. The lecture was followed by break-out groups, where participants applied ideas from the seminar series to actual projects being pursued by Harvard Medical students this summer.
