Dr Stephen Setterberg

Stephen Setterberg is a psychiatrist and psychoanalytic psychotherapist who founded and developed the PrairieCare system of clinics and hospitals for children and adolescents in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. These psychiatric facilities exemplify the preservation of a depth psychological and relational zeitgeist, despite socioeconomic pressures to the contrary. While subsequently training in Zurich as a Jungian analyst, Stephen co-founded the Stillpoint Spaces project (, a forum for psychologically-minded individuals of diverse cultural and educational backgrounds to connect, share, and reflect on questions of personal meaning and cultural context, utilizing insights from psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and related fields. Stillpoint now has branches in Zurich, Berlin, London and Paris. He continues to direct PrairieCare's strategic innovations as its president and board chairman and joins Confer as a co-director.
