In this presentation, Jack and Kerry Novick will share some ideas about broadening and enriching our analytic repertoire. How many channels do we have open when we are listening to adult patients? What can we bring to bear to encompass the complexity of adult personality, character, history and functioning? They suggest that there are aspects of developmental knowledge, experience, and child/adolescent technique that bring depth to work with adults and may at times illuminate obscure aspects of functioning or offer ways out of impasses. They describe these in the context of the therapeutic relationship in its many dimensions and in terms of the various ways that adults internalize and use parenting functions. (more…)

“We” and “I” in “Don’t Think Twice”

Friday, April 28th, 2017

“We” and “I” in Don’t Think Twice by Herbert H. Stein

“Okay, a little bit of history. In 1955, a group of actors in Chicago invented the idea that improvisational theater could be an art form unto itself, not just a warm-up for other theater.”

Those are the opening words of the film, Don’t Think Twice, spoken in a woman’s voice, probably Samantha, one of the central characters in this fictional work about an improvisational group. The opening, a brief history of improvisational theater, is accompanied by scenes and spoken words from early improvisational artists, starting with The Second City, and of quick peeks at the members of the film’s fictional improv group, the Commune.

They go on to give us the fundamental rules of improvisation, which will prove crucial to the film’s central conflict.
