Dr. Joseph Aguayo at IPTAR

SAVE THE DATE FOR THIS EXCITING MEETING WITH DR. JOSEPH AGUAYO

Dr. Joseph Aguayo, Training and Supervising Analyst of the Psychoanalytic Center of California, is pleased to return to IPTAR and will present a full-day program on Saturday, December 3rd, 2016. The two programs for IPTAR are a morning and afternoon presentation.

The Saturday morning paper, ‘On the Life and Work of W.R. Bion, is based on an extensive book review that will appear in a forthcoming 2016 issue of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis of the recently issued 16 volume Complete Works of Bion (CW). This includes a power point slide presentation that includes photos of the First World War, the cumbersome tanks that Bion commanded; as well as his evocative watercolor paintings, (which appear in the Complete Works). This lecture is more a ‘virtual tour’ of Bion’s life and work, and is pitched at the level where those new and old to Bion studies may have their curiosity potentially piqued. It covers all four periods of his work–the group period; the psychosis papers; the epistemology; and the so-called ‘late’ period of his clinical seminars and aesthetic works.

The Saturday afternoon program is a clinical extrapolation of Bion’s analytic method of treating patients. It is part of a forthcoming book, co-produced with London Kleinian and Amercian colleagues, Robert Hinshelwood, Sira Dermen and Barnet Malin. This paper addresses the general question of whether we can explicate if there in fact something like a ‘Bionian clinical technique.’ I emphasize some of Bion’s own clinical cases as well as supervisions he conducted from 1967-1978, as reproduced in his many Clinical Seminars given in North and South America an Europe. Here I take up his final, mature clinical thought, adding in examples from my own analytic cases. I maintain that Bion’s innovations in technique in turn set the stage for the developments made by others, such as the contemporary Klein group in London.
