City Within a City was the secret diary written in Polish in 1944 when Basia (Batya) and her husband Adolf-Abraham Berman, lived on the Aryan side of Warsaw—the part designated by the Nazis for Polish Christians only—and led a secret network helping thousands of Jews to hide and survive.

“I would like to describe this state within a state, or rather, a city within a city, this most underground of all underground communities, whose members met with each other, worked and talked in the midst of a population which didn’t suspect anything; where every street, every coffee shop, every tram stop called to mind dozens of unique adventures. Every name was false, every word that was uttered carried a double meaning, and every telephone conversation was more encrypted than the secret diplomatic documents of embassies.”
—Basia Berman

Dancing in the Dark: Intuition as a Guiding Light

Impasse in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

Spring Workshop*: Jane Hall, LCSW Dancing in the Dark: Intuition as a Guiding Light
Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the New York Freudian Society; a founder of The New York School for Psychotherapy

Labels such as negative therapeutic reaction or impasse (a deadlock with no anticipated progress) can box us in. Ms. Hall invites us to explore what makes the therapist resort to these labels. Using case material she will revisit the repetition compulsion and the attachment to abuse that often exhaust the dyad. Her premise is that benevolent curiosity, hopefulness, caritas, and patience are what keep us going. She will remind us that change, no matter how longed for, means loss: loss of early objects, reliable (though often crippling) defenses, and even one’s sense of self. What often seem like impasses can be seen as calls for help to face powerful fears of separation. Although our work seeks to cast light we must also be comfortable dancing in the dark.
