The “Not I” Patient with Susan Finkelstein of IPTAR

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

THE “NOT I” PATIENT: Instructor: Susan Finkelstein, LCSW, Wednesdays, October 18, 25 November 1,8,15, 830-10pm, 771 West End Avenue

The “Not I” patient is the clinical representation of the traumatized ‘ mouth’ depicted by Samuel Beckett in his play of the same name, whose experience of pain is disembodied and disowned. These sado-masochistic parts of the self become part of the transference /counter-transference dynamic but neither patient nor analyst are aware of them or want to experience them, resulting in mutual enactments.
The class will use clinical vignettes from both the instructor and participants to illustrate and understand the unconscious anxieties and primitive defense of projective identification of these unmetabolized experiences that prevent deeper understanding and working through. (more…)

Navagating Boundaries and Countertransference When Working with Children, and Adolescents and Their Parents with Shelly Petnov-Sherman at MITPP

Monday, September 18th, 2017

The Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, The Metropolitan Center for Mental Health and The Metropolitan Society of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists

Invite you to a Scientific Meeting: Friday, October 20, 2017 – 7:30 PM
NAVIGATING BOUNDARIES AND COUNTERTRANSFERENCE WHEN WORKING WITH CHILDREN, ADOLESCENTS AND THEIR PARENTS PRESENTER: SHELLY PETNOV-SHERMAN, LCSW

Treating children and adolescents can be extremely fulfilling and fun, as well as complex and difficult. Navigating the engagement of parents while maintaining confidentiality and boundaries can feel like “walking on a tightrope without a safety net.” This presentation will help facilitate and may challenge your understanding and knowledge of the dynamics involved in working with children and adolescents and their parents. Shelly Petnov-Sherman will use clinical material to illustrate these dynamics. She will also discuss her countertransference with this group of patients and how it has impacted and informed the treatment. This presentation will include how she came to this work and the trials she has endured, as well as how her ways of working have evolved over time.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will: 1) discuss how transference and countertransference can facilitate or make for impasses in working with children, adolescents and their parents/caregivers, 2) identify nuances of confidentiality and the impact of treatment with this population, and 3) discuss the importance of acknowledging, respecting and working with racial and ethnic values with children, adolescents and their families.

Two Psychology Trainees Discuss Their Dissertations at NYPSI

Two Psychology Trainees Discuss Their Dissertations: Jessica Wolman, PhD and Kate Mannix, MA, Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 8 pm, New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute 247 East 82nd Street, NYC (btwn 2nd and 3rd Aves), Register HERE, visit nypsi.org or call 212.879.6900

NYPSI Works in Progress Seminar:
Two Psychology Trainees Discuss Their Dissertations

This works in progress seminar will be devoted to presentations by two NYPSI trainees who will discuss their dissertations and research.

Jessica Wolman, PhD will present “Aliveness and Deadness in the Therapeutic Process.” Based on the theories of Winnicott, Ogden and Green among others, Dr. Wolman will present 5 clinical cases and show the application of the ideas of these thinkers to her clinical material.

Kate Mannix, MA will present “Narcissism and the Response to Interpersonal Dependency.” Based in part on some ideas of Melanie Klein, Ms. Mannix hypothesizes that narcissism is often a defense against feelings of dependency. In her work she will show by using a variety of measures that when narcissistic individuals are asked to recall thoughts or emotions resulting from dependency on another person, they will show an increased use of defense mechanisms.

Meeting the Challenge of Treating Atypically-Wired Children using Psychoanalysis with Susan Sherkow, M.D.. at NYPSI

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Meeting the Challenge of Treating Atypically-Wired Children using Psychoanalysis, Presenter: Susan Sherkow, M.D.. Discussants: Alexander Kalogerakis, M.D. and Robert Scharf, M.D., Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 8 pm, New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute, 247 East 82nd Street, NYC (btwn 2nd and 3rd Aves)

This presentation aims to demonstrate the confluence of psychoanalysis and neuroscience in the context of the internalization process in neurodevelopment. Dr. Sherkow will present clinical material from the analytic treatment of an “atypically wired” five-and-a-half year old boy focusing on the child’s mental representational world and shedding light on: 1) distortions in the child’s mental representation of mother and being mothered, caused in part by atypical neurocircuitry 2) the impact of these distortions on the mother, the child, and the mother-child relationship 3) how these distortions come through in the transference and 4) how psychoanalysis can help “rewire” the brain to allow for a secure internalization of the mother.

Analytic Listening and Concepts with Hadassah Ramin at CFS

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

The Psychoanalytic Training Institute of The Contemporary Freudian Society
Foundations of Psychoanalytic Practice
We are pleased to offer a six-week course on Analytic Listening and Concepts beginning Fall 2017. This course qualifies for 9 Continuing Education credits.

This course is suitable for students from a wide variety of backgrounds, including practicing clinicians from all disciplines, recent graduates of Masters-level or Doctoral-level programs, professionals considering changing careers, and anyone interested in exploring the possibility of post-graduate psychoanalytic training.

Analytic Listening and Concepts, Instructor: Hadassah Ramin, LCSW, Dates: October 16, 23, 30, November 6, 13, 20, Time: 6:30-8:00 pm, Location: Upper West Side

The initial consultation is the stage on which patients present the cast of their internal objects. How we listen and what we listen for will be explored with a focus on the initial consultation. Paying close attention to the narrative presented will facilitate identifying the transference, its effect on us – the countertransference – and the way we use this kind of listening as a tool to deepen our understanding of the patient’s relationship to his/her internal objects. This understanding will inform us about how to formulate our interventions in a way that will be useful to the patient. (more…)

“S’auteuriser de lui-même?” with Alain Didier-Weill and Jean-Michel Vives at Après-Coup

We regretfully announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, Alain Didier-Weill will not be able to attend this conference.

Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association presents

PANEL DISCUSSION
“S’auteuriser de lui-même?”
Alain Didier-Weill and Jean-Michel Vives

Saturday, June 24, 2017
10:30 am – 2:30 pm
The School of Visual Arts
136 West 21st Street, New York, NY

When Lacan says “the analyst is authorized only by himself,” to what does “himself” (lui-même) refer? Far from being a solipsistic turn back upon the self, this lui-même implies an opening onto the Real and receptivity toward the unexpected. The discourse of the analyst is one in which a subject ventures an act of creation through a speech act.

Alain Didier-Weill is a psychoanalyst, psychiatrist and writer. He was a member of the École freudienne de Paris and active participant in Lacan’s 1975, ’76 and ’80 seminars. He co-founded Coût freudien, and (more…)
