WORKS IN PROGRESS SEMINAR

Wednesday, May 2, 8:00 pm
“The Analytic Frame: Neither Subject nor Object”

Presenter: Marion Oliner, PhD

In this presentation Dr. Oliner will examine the tacit actions involving the frame that take place in each analytic treatment. These actions are not enactments to be accepted as sources of analytic insight. As Bleger (Bleger, 1967) has shown, tacit actions are the secure foundation for the process, and should be analyzed at the conclusion of the analysis. It is important not to confuse the contemporary rejection of the rigidity formerly associated with the Freudian model with the silence surrounding the frame, as if it were a throwback to the old authoritarian model. Dr. Oliner’s interest draws on Winnicott’s conceptualization of the use of the object. Applied to the analytic process, the analyst’s analytic attitude in response to the destructive transference is experienced by the patient as the analyst’s survival. Case material will illustrate Dr. Oliner’s belief in the crucial importance of the survival of the frame for the patient.

THE ARNOLD PFEFFER CENTER FOR NEUROPSYCHOANALYSIS

Saturday, May 5, 10:00 am
“Mentalising Homeostasis: The Somatic and Social Origins of the Self”

Presenter: Katerina Fotopoulou, PhD

Inspired by psychoanalytic insights on development, Dr. Fotopoulou will present a set of behavioural and neuroscientific studies with healthy individuals, neurological patients with right-hemisphere damage, and patients with anorexia nervosa, putting forward the idea that first and third-person perspectives on the self dissociate and proximal, embodied experiences of affective congruency may act as the ’emotional glue’ between such first and third-person perspectives on one’s own self-consciousness. Without such unification, self-consciousness is either dominated by egocentric (narcissistic), interoceptive priors (as in anosognosia for hemiplegia), or third-person (super-ego) judgements lacking in affective anchoring to the body (as in anorexia nervosa). By contrast, the progressive integration of these perspectives contributes not only in a flexible, unified experience of the self in adulthood, but our ability to understand other minds and empathise with their embodied and mental experience, even though ours may be different.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM MEETING

Tuesday, May 8, 8:00 pm
“La Situación Psicoanalítica: Latin American Contributions to Psychoanalysis”

Panelists:Jorge Balan, PhD, Irene Cairo, MD, Luis Ripoll, MD (moderator), Rogelio Sosnik, MD

This panel will address a distinctly Latin-American perspective in psychoanalysis. Latin-American contributions to psychoanalysis have been of increasing interest in the age of psychoanalytic pluralism and, over time, they have come to be grouped together. Yet there is limited opportunity to study this collective contribution, especially where European, British, and North American psychoanalytic traditions prevail. To a greater extent than in other regions, psychoanalysis in Latin America has been characterized by an enthusiasm for object-relations theory, based largely on Melanie Klein’s depressive and paranoid-schizoid positions. British, post-Kleinian authors, along with Wilfred Bion, have also played a significant role (particularly with regard to their research on psychosis, however varied it may be) in the thinking of Latin American psychoanalytic theorists. Some have also been curious about the elucidation of linguistic aspects of the unconscious and associated distinctions between specific levels of mentation, including an interest in unconscious phantasy, with its individual and trans-individual dimensions. Within the broader domain of Latin American contributions to psychoanalysis, the focus of this panel will be the precise theoretical, societal, and historical frameworks of Latin-American contributions to the field.

Exploring Child Analysis: A Case Presentation, Discussion & Exploration of Training Options

Presenter: Susan Sherkow, M.D.

The evening will feature a case presentation by Dr. Susan Sherkow, who has significant experience in working with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other “atypical” children. Dr. Sherkow will discuss how she uses analytic techniques and tools to work therapeutically with this challenging clinical population.

It is an opportunity for licensed clinical social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatry residents, psychology graduate students and other licensed mental health professionals to learn about child analytic training at NYPSI and how this intensive training program can enhance their theoretical knowledge and clinical skills. We look forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

Screening & Discussion of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation

Post-film Discussant: Helen K. Gediman, PhD

Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 masterpiece, The Conversation, is the brilliant forerunner of films in the surveillance stalking genre in which professionals are paid to stalk. The incomparable Gene Hackman portrays a schizoid private investigator whose personality deteriorates under work-related personal guilt that breaks through his characteristic dissociative defenses. The surveillance technology of the Watergate era that sustain his fragile persona is uncannily prescient of present-day omnipresent hacking in Cyberspace. For chills and thrills in great cinema, come one and all.

No CME/CE credits offered.
