  • I am Susan C. Vaughan, MD, the Director of the Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. We were the organization sponsoring the panel described in this article through our Public Outreach Programming. I just wanted to make clear that Dr Jeffrey Lieberman was invited BY ME to participate in this first program during my tenure. I apologize if this was not reported to my colleague Brenda Berger in a timely way or there was misunderstanding here and did not realize how badly Bandy Lee and James Gilligan felt about the panel until reading this piece. But I do think it mischaracterizes things to say that Dr. Lieberman pushed his way and took over the evening when I had invited him and also invited him to speak briefly as part of including him.
