Degrees of Entrapment: Living and Dying in the Claustrum with Pamela Sorenson at CFS

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

The Psychoanalytic Training Institute of The Contemporary Freudian Society
Degrees of Entrapment: Living and Dying in the Claustrum

Two-Session Program
Instructor: Pamela Sorensen, PhD
Dates: Friday, November 6, 2015
Saturday, November 7, 2015
Times: Nov 6th 7:30-10:00pm, Nov 7th 9:00am-3:00pm
Location: Upper West Side, NYC

This two-session program will introduce and explore Donald Meltzer’s concept of the claustrum, which is an original and significant contribution to modern psychoanalytic thinking. Two films will be used to illustrate the concept and provide shared ground for the lecture and discussion.

Donald Meltzer’s book “The Claustrum – An Investigation of Claustrophobic Phenomenon” develops and elaborates Kleinian ideas about projective identification in such a way that the clinician is better able to understand patients’ experiences of being trapped in habits of mind that preclude the possibility of authentic intimate connections. The two films used in the workshop show how there is a continuum of disturbance, ranging from ordinary periods of isolation to severe entrapment leading to chronic and destructive pathology.

Pamelia Sorensen, PhD is a psychoanalytic child psychotherapist trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London, UK in the 1970s. She is the author of journal articles and book chapters about infant development, child psychotherapy, and the training of clinicians. She is the former director of The Under Fives Study Center at the University of Virginia, and provides supervision and consultation to psychologists, social workers, and counselors engaged in psychoanalytic work. Her special interest in Donald Meltzer’s work stems from the inspiration of many years of personal supervision with him.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this program, participants will learn:

1. How Meltzer’s concept of “intrusive” projective identification is different from the original concept developed by Melanie Klein and why this is clinically useful.

2. To identify personality characteristics that adhere to the unconscious phantasies associated with different parts of the claustrum.

3. To understand the range of claustral experience and what factors mitigate chronic feelings of entrapment.

“Changing Sex, Changing Psychoanalysis” with Patricia Gherovici at CFS

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

THE PSYCHOANALYTIC TRAINING INSTITUTE OF THE CONTEMPORARY FREUDIAN SOCIETY
“Changing Sex, Changing Psychoanalysis” Presenter: Patricia Gherovici, PhD
Friday, September 18, 2015, 8:00 – 10:00pm

I take as my point of departure the dawn of psychoanalysis: hysteric patients presented somatic problems for which traditional medicine could give no answer; this led Freud to invent a new mode of treatment. For Freud it meant postulating the existence of the unconscious. The hysterics’ symptoms all revealed a sexual origin. At the same period, leading sexologists and pioneer activists like Magnus Hirshfeld worked closely to Freud, which seemed to promise a fruitful collaboration between the fields. Unhappily prejudice prevented this collaboration, and sexology and psychoanalysis took divergent, even opposed paths. Despite these tensions, transsexualism has remained (more…)

President’s Message

By Marilyn Charles, PhD

These are difficult times for members of Division 39, as we reel from increasing evidence that reveals APA complicity in supporting psychologist involvement in torture. While awaiting the Hoffman report, some members are questioning the ethical imperatives brought forward by largely uncontroverted information that has already been revealed. How do we locate ourselves as an ethical individual in relation to a parent organization that seemingly has engaged in morally repugnant and even corrupt practices? (more…)
