Screening & Discussion of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation with Helen K. Gediman at NYPSI

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Brill Library Film Series: Screening & Discussion of The Conversation with Helen K. Gediman, Ph.D.

Screening & Discussion of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation Helen K. Gediman, PhD
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 7:30 – 10:00 pm The Marianne and Nicholas Young Auditorium 247 East 82nd Street, NYC

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.

General Admission – $15
Student Admission – $10

According to cognitive neuroscience there are at least two ways of knowing yourself: One, through integrating multimodal signals into an egocentric reference frame and assigning the first person perspective; another, through the cognitive ability to disengage from the embodied first person perspective and adopt another person’s perspective on your experience. These research traditions have progressed with relative independence in the field. For example, different paradigms examine feelings of body ownership and agency from a first person perspective (e.g. the Rubber Hand Illusion) versus third person perspective, self-recognition in mirrors. 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 (more…)

9:30am – 10:45 am: Dr. Ron Britton (followed by audience Q&A)
The paper describes the evolution of so called post-Kleinian analysis and its current style as exemplified in the work of Ronald Britton. The development of a method of using psychoanalysis with young children largely based on the application of dream analysis to children’s play made considerable changes to adult analysis. A child case is described that illustrates manifest recapitulation in play of an immediate life trauma and its segregation from the primitive phantasy that existed in the child’s frightening dream life. The paper discusses some of Britton’s own ideas and those shared with others such as John (more…)

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 (more…)

Social Media: How to Develop a Practice That Works for You

Training at the American Institute for Psychoanalysis provides the knowledge, skills and support system necessary to thrive in private practice in the age of the internet.

The AIP training programs have been serving the complex needs of clinicians for over 77 years. Member of the American Psychoanalytic Association & International Psychoanalytical Association

“Freedom to Choose: Two Systems of Self-Regulation” with Jack Novick and Kerry Kelly Novick at CFS

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Honoring Jack and Kerry Kelly Novick Focusing on their Latest Publication: “Freedom to Choose: Two Systems of Self-Regulation”
One-Session Program (2 CE Credits) Presenters:Jack Novick and Kerry Kelly Novick Discussants: Jane Hall, Kimberly Kleinman, and Donna Roth Smith
Date: Friday, May 18, 2018 Time: 8:00-10:00pm Location:Mt. Sinai’s Goldwurm Auditorium, Madison Ave @ 98th Street, NYC

At this event we will celebrate Jack and Kerry Novick’s contributions to our field, with special emphasis on their most recent book, “Freedom to Choose: Two Systems of Self-Regulation.” This is a fitting focus, as the book articulates a central strand of their developmental and clinical thinking from early work on beating fantasies in the 1960s, through writings on sadomasochism, to more recent formulations of a model of two systems of self-regulation.
The evening is planned as a collaborative engagement among the speakers and the audience, with the goal of thinking together about how psychoanalytic ideas evolve and can be made useful and accessible. Well known for their clarity and warmth, the Novicks will share experiences to illustrate their work. They will be joined by two distinguished colleagues, Donna Roth Smith and Kim Kleinman, who will talk about ways they have applied some of the Novicks’ concepts and technical approaches. (more…)

Digging Deeper with an Anxious Adolescent with Christina Garidis at MITPP

A 15 year-old girl sought treatment for severe anxiety believing her symptoms were related primarily to fears that she would not achieve academic success. Beneath her academic distress were issues independent of academic achievement including an insecure attachment to her parents, and an enmeshment communicated both emotionally and physically. At times the patient expressed her feelings about her parents through rage, and at other times guilt, pity, sadness and fear of loss. These shifting expressions were often dependent upon the interplay with her therapist. The therapist regularly experienced a sense of constriction in the room, and the feeling that she “couldn’t get it right” in responding to the patient. These interactions provided the therapist with clues about the patient’s need to remain connected and attached while simultaneously becoming an autonomous individual. (more…)

The Psychoanalytic Fellowship is a one-year program at the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute designed to introduce participants to modern psychoanalytic theory and practice.

Seminars are conducted on the second and fourth Tuesday evenings of the month during the academic year, October through May. There is no tuition fee.

Application to the Fellowship is open to candidates earning doctoral degrees in psychology and social work, residents and fellows in psychiatry, and (more…)

Jacques Barber’s presentation:

What do we know about the efficacy of dynamic therapy for specific disorders? For years, psychodynamic therapy has been under attack for not being sufficiently empirical. Interestingly both friends and foes are not sufficiently aware of the outcome literature. This presentation will address this gap in knowledge and present systematic reviews addressing the efficacy of dynamic therapy for depression, anxiety disorders and personality disorders. I will delve in greater depth into examining the question of what treatment works for whom. I will suggest a way this kind of critical question for our field can be (more…)
