IPTAR PRESENTS
 BION’S CLINICAL SEMINARS IN LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK CITY
Joseph Aguayo, Ph.D.
November 21 and 22, 2014
IPTAR WEST, 140 W. 97th Street
Dr. Aguayo will discuss the only two clinical seminars ever given by Wilfred Bion in the United States:  the Los Angeles Seminars and Supervision in 1967; and the IPTAR Seminars in New York City in 1977.  The presenter’s interest lies primarily in bringing clinical Bion to the fore and in examining some of Bion’s ground-breaking concepts when he first introduced them in the 1960’s and 70’s.  On Friday evening, Dr. Aguayo will take up the clinical and technical implications of Bion’s ideas as he attempted to make these ideas accessible to classically-trained audiences unfamiliar with his work. On Saturday morning a panel of IPTAR analysts who attended Bion’s 1977 seminars will recount their experiences hearing Bion for the first time. Dr. Aguayo will then present case material that highlights Bion’s technique in his work with near psychotic patients.

This Conference is a rare opportunity to learn about Wilfred R. Bion’s historical presentations in Los Angeles and New York. Dr. Aguayo will also present his own clinical notes and interventions to distinguish Bionian interpretations from Kleinian interpretations. In attending this conference you will gain knowledge about Bion’s concepts of “no memory or desire” as well as understanding differences in psychoanalytic technique between Freudian, Kleinian and Bionian perspectives.
