“Ferenczi, Yesterday and Today” with Jay Frankel Wednesday, February 4, 2015
8:00 to 10:00pm,
Location: TBA

Sándor Ferenczi was Freud=s intimate friend, colleague, and collaborator, and also a radical, independent thinker. His profoundly democratic sensibility, his insistence on providing analytic treatment to the most difficult patients, and – most important – his revolutionary conceptions in areas ranging from trauma, to object relations, to the intersubjective nature of the analytic relationship, and his developing new treatment methods based on these discoveries, ultimately estranged him from his mentor and, for decades, from the psychoanalytic world. But in the long run, his groundbreaking ideas and experiments in technique proved foundational for later object-relational, interpersonal, and relational thinking. Even today, his contributions are at the cutting edge and have much to teach us. And he left behind a Clinical Diary (1932) that, in its clarity of thinking, scrupulous honesty, and frank, detailed descriptions of his courageous clinical work, is a singular document in psychoanalytic literature. We will discuss Ferenczi=s main contributions, both in historical context and as they continue to engage us in dialogue about contemporary clinical thinking and methods.

“Michael Balint and The Basic Fault” with Jay Frankel

Wednesday, March 18, 2015, 8:00 to 10:00pm, Location: TBA

Michael Bálint, Ferenczi=s patient, student, and eventually literary executor, developed and extended Ferenczi=s conceptions in his own particular ways, and was an important link between the ABudapest School@ of the early twentieth century and later British object-relations thinkers. He extended Ferenczi=s insights about trauma and the Atwo-person@ idea of clinical psychoanalysis, continued Ferenczi=s legacy of a liberal psychoanalysis, pioneered psychoanalytic work with psychosomatic patients, and developed a method of mentoring general practitioners in psychological aspects of medical practice. Most notably, Bálint=s 1968 book, The Basic Fault, pulls together much of his earlier work and remains a landmark in understanding the causes, dynamics, and treatment of narcissistically disturbed patients. We will focus on that work in terms of Bálint=s explorations of the child=s developmental needs and relation to her environment; the nature of trauma and of narcissism; the implications of this understanding for analytic technique; and especially the clinical importance, dangers, and optimal clinical management of regression.
