He currently speaks english and french languages. He has obtained the degree in Medicine and the specializations in Psychiatry and in Clinical Criminology (University of Bari). Having got a psychoanalytic training, at the present time he works as brief dynamic psychotherapist, with particular interest for adolescent psychopathology, and as group therapist (psychoanalytic approach) with young schizophrenic outpatients. Among his professional experiences: stage in 1994 at the "Service psychotherapeutique pour enfants et adolescents" of the University of Strasbourg (France), directed by Claude Bursztejn; psychiatrist with a temporary appointment in the ULSS of Portogruaro (Venice - Italy). Since 2004 he attends the supervision seminars and the training psychotherapeutic groups at Venice (Italy), directed by Salomon Resnik (I.P.A. psychoanalist). Since 2005 he is member of N-PSA (International Neuro-Psychoanalysis Association), whose main office is at London. He is founder of A.S.S.E.Psi. (Association for the Study of the History and the Epistemology of Psychiatry web site: http://web.tiscali.it/bibliopsi ) and Ce.Psi.Di. (Center of Dynamic Psychotherapy) which publishes the web revue "FRENIS ZERO" (web site http://web.tiscali.it/bibliopsi/frenishome.htm ). "Frenis Zero" wants to explore the border areas between psychoanalysis on the one hand and arts, philosophy and neuroscience on the other. In 2007 he founded "Edizioni Frenis Zero" ("Frenis Zero Publishing") whose first book was "Vite soffiate. I vinti della psicoanalisi" (Narrative, ISBN 978-88-903710-0-4), a fiction novel written by Giuseppe D. Leo, about a series of analysts, pioneers in the history of psychoanalysis, who committed suicide (Tatiana Rosenthal, Eugenie Sokolnicka, Sophie Morgenstern, Viktor Tausk, Wilhelm Stekel) or who suffered some mental illness in their life (Otto Gross, Sabina Spielrein).
