Making it Work: Putting the Play in Play Therapy with Jill Bellinson at MITPP

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

THE METROPOLITAN INSTITUTE FOR TRAINING IN PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY, THE METROPOLITAN CENTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH, and THE METROPOLITAN SOCIETY FOR PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPISTS invite you to

A CLINICAL WORKSHOP MAKING IT WORK: PUTTING THE PLAY IN PLAY THERAPY SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2017
PRESENTER: JILL BELLINSON, Ph.D.

Child therapists are drawn to the work because children seem innocent and appealing and eager to relate. They become expert at making an alliance with children and joining in the play that children engage in so energetically. Then someone — child, parent, or therapist’s inner voice — worries, “All we do is play!” This workshop will explore whether play is all we do, whether play is enough to do, and how to create play that is truly therapeutic. Clinical examples will be offered by the instructor and welcomed from the participants. (more…)

New Study Group: In Dark Times, Freud’s and Ours at Après-Coup

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association: New Study Group: In Dark Times, Freud’s and Ours
FIRST MEETING: Sunday, November 19, 2017, 1-2:30 pm. We will meet every 3 weeks.

In these dark times, “the light of the public obscures everything” (Heidegger). The refuge that psychoanalysis provided in Freud’s time against the public exposure of everyday life is all the more crucial today given the encroachment of mediatized lives accompanied by the persistent demand to program “a life of one’s own”. Fortunately, the unconscious has no biography and it is unnecessary to sacrifice the truths of desire encountered in an analysis for trumped-up stories. This study group will explore writers, beginning with Freud who, unable to live with what passes for politics, embark upon a journey of psychical emigration and travel through political landscapes, making of writing a political act. We will be particularly interested in the writings of exiles and extra-territorials such as Hannah Arendt, Joseph Roth, Norman Manea, and Czeslaw Milosz as well as post-war French thinkers including Lacan, Derrida, Lyotard and Blanchot.

Location: 201 W. 77th street (corner of Amsterdam Avenue), suite15D.

While attendance is free, registration is required. Please contact Salvatore F. Guido at sfrguido@gmail.com or 212 229 0811 for details and to register.
