Revisiting History, Concepts, and the Clinical Situation in Classical Psychoanalysis with Barbara Stimmel at CFS

Revisiting History, Concepts, and the Clinical Situation in Classical Psychoanalysis
Eight-Session Program (12 Contact Hours), Presenter: Barbara Stimmel, PhD, Dates: 8 Tuesdays, September 5 – October 24, 2017, Time:6:30-8:00pm Location: 1185 Park Avenue (bet. 93 & 94th St) NYC

The curriculum of a psychoanalytic institute, any institute, must focus on multiple aspects of our very complex and challenging profession so that it is impossible to study many important contexts of psychoanalysis in-depth. This series aims to further and deepen the study of the Freudian project.

This program of study will do three things in an interrelated way: First, we will look at Freud as a man of his time and its science, and his culture as his and his colleague’s paradigm-shifting thought and work invaded the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Second, participants will read several key, early papers closely to see how they reflect the challenges psychoanalysis confronted from without, and within. Third, we will apply the technique of micro-processing to current clinical material with an emphasis on some tried and true technical concepts, primarily free association within the transference, as well as patient/analyst Read the rest of this post »

Workshop Description:

Bion states that containment “is perhaps the most important mechanism employed by the practicing psychoanalyst.” I believe that the challenge of containment is highly important not only for the psychoanalyst, but in any role, such as a manager, a consultant, the chair of a committee, a teacher and obviously for a parent. Moreover, the notion of containment is relevant not only with regard to an individual in his/her role but for organizational entities such as managements and Read the rest of this post »

From Betty Joseph to Michael Eigen: The Dialectics of Change within Psychoanalysis” Aner Govrin at NPAP

THE PROGRAM COMMITTEE OF THE NATIONAL PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION FOR PSYCHOANALYSIS Presents “From Betty Joseph to Michael Eigen: The Dialectics of Change within Psychoanalysis” Aner Govrin, PhD, Israeli Philosopher and Psychoanalyst

TUESDAY: MAY 2, 2017, 7:00 – 9:00 pm, NPAP, 40 WEST 13 STREET, # 216, (Between 5th and 6th Avenues), Handicap accessible facility

Throughout its history, psychoanalysis has successfully embraced an amalgam of what he has defined and termed fascinated and troubled communities. A fascinated community is a group that embraces a psychoanalytic theory (such as Bion’s, Klein’s, Winnicott’s) as one embraces truth. A troubled community is one that is not satisfied with the state of psychoanalytic knowledge and seeks to generate a fundamental change that does not square with existing traditions (such as new psychoanalytic schools, scientifically troubled communities and the relational approach).
In this lecture Govrin will discuss change by troubled analysts within fascinated communities. Over time, all psychoanalytic communities undergo change. But what Read the rest of this post »
