IPA Visiting Scholar Clinical Weekend with David Bell

IPA Visiting Scholar Clinical Weekend
November 21-23, 2014
Knowledge as Construction, Knowledge as Experience: Reflections on Psychic Change
The focus of the weekend will be to underline how different theoretical persuasions lead to differences in therapeutic aim, therapeutic action, and therapeutic technique.

Conference Co-Sponsored by the Contemporary Freudian Society (CFS) and the International Psychoanalytic Studies Organization (IPSO). This event is supported by an IPA CAPSA Grant with the aim of stimulating debate on different psychoanalytical theoretical and cultural perspectives and understandings, to enhance knowledge of both the details of clinical process and the range of theoretical issues related to it, and to enable participants to gain a greater sense of being a psychoanalytic citizen of the world.

Friday, November 21, 2014 8:00-10:00pm
Scientific Paper and Discussion
Location: Hatch Auditorium, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Madison Avenue @ 98th St, NY
Fee: $25.00

Presenter: David Bell, B.Sc., MRCP, FRCPsych (London, UK)
Discussant: Fred Busch, PhD (Chestnut Hill, MA)
Moderator: Phillida Rosnick, PhD (New York, NY)

Dr. Bell’s paper takes as its starting point Freud’s paper “Constructions in Analysis” and then moves on to discuss fundamental questions as regards how we understand the aims of psychoanalysis and touches upon important controversies in this area. The paper gives emphasis to what is termed “knowledge as experience”, as distinct from “knowledge as fact”.

Psychoanalytic understanding is viewed as an emergent process involving internal shifts within the patient and the analyst, and so it is argued that an analysis cannot be an analysis without understanding the ways in which a patient’s inner world is brought into the consulting room. As this approach continues to give emphasis to insight as the source of change and to the neutrality of the analyst, it remains wedded to a broadly classical perspective, and so differs from some more contemporary trends in psychoanalysis (such as the intersubjectivity/relational approach). The themes of the paper are illustrated with clinical examples from his work as a Kleinian analyst.
