Bion and D. Meltzer. He is much sought after as a supervisor, lecturer, and teacher in Europe ( e.g., Barcelona, Sofia, Florence, Venice, Madrid, Salzburg, Rome, Paris, and St. Petersburg); South America (Chile, Peru, Buenos Aires), and Asia (Tokyo, Mumbai). In these centers he reads papers, supervises, teaches in postgraduate seminars and gives Master classes on psychopathology and technique. He has lectured extensively on the psychoanalytic process, narcissism, dreams, autism, thought disorders, and psychoses.

It is through her recommendation that the Society and Institute brought Dr. Hahn to Chicago.
