Reflections on Klein’s Radical Notion of Phantasy and its Implications for Analytic Practice with Rachel Blass, PhD at NYPSI

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

NYPSI’s 1020th Scientific Program Meeting: Reflections on Klein’s Radical Notion of Phantasy and its Implications for Analytic Practice
with Rachel Blass, PhD

Rachel Blass, PhD

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 8 pm, New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute, 247 East 82nd Street, NYC (btwn 2nd and 3rd Aves)

Analysts may incorporate many of Melanie Klein’s important contributions (e.g., on preoedipal dynamics, envy, and projective identification) without transforming their basic analytic approach. In this lecture I argue that adopting the Kleinian notion of unconscious phantasy is transformative. This notion of phantasy is grounded in Freud’s thinking and draws out something that is essential to his work. At the same it involves a radical change that defines Kleinian thinking and practice and significantly impacts the analyst’s basic clinical approach. This impact and its technical implications in the analytic situation will be illustrated and discussed. (more…)

The Fundamental Epistemological Situation with Howard B. Levine at CFS

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

The Fundamental Epistemological Situation: Psychic Reality and the Limitations of Classical Theory”
Presenter: Howard B. Levine, MD, Friday, March 10, 2017 8:00-10:00pm

While many of Freud’s formulations were restricted by the epistemological assumptions of his times, his creative genius allowed him to anticipate post-modern views that are at the cutting edge of contemporary analytic thinking. This paper will attempt to examine the epistemological basis – what do we think we know and how do we think we come to know it? – for the shift in the aims of analysis from a predominant emphasis on uncovering mental contents to one that also includes the creation of mental contents and the strengthening of the instruments for thinking and the capacity for thought. A brief clinical example will illustrate some of the clinical implications of this shift. (more…)

PREGNANCY AND POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION: TREATMENT AND ITS COMPLICATIONS SATURDAY, MARCH 18, 2017
PRESENTER: ALEXANDRA CATTARUZZA, M.S., L.P.

Treatment during a patient’s pregnancy can prove quite challenging as the new mother has to meet the biological, psychological and environmental demands of an expected or newborn baby. In some mothers who have experienced a lack of good-enough care from their own mothers and have internalized a bad parental object, there is a powerful resistance that can result in the patient abandoning the treatment. Women who have a history of abandonment by one or both of the parents, may repeat this experience in the transference, prematurely terminating the treatment. (more…)

Psychoanalytic Conversations on Diversity and Race: A Panel Discussion at NYPSI

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM MEETING
Psychoanalytic Conversations on Diversity and Race: A Panel Discussion; Free For Members & NYPSI Students
Tuesday, March 14, 2017, 8:00 pm, Moderator: Beverly Stoute, MD, Panelists: Anton Hart, PhD, Milton Hollar, MD and Kathy Pogue White, PhD

This will be an interactive presentation devoted to how we discuss our experiences of and resistances to thinking and talking about difference. How do we experience difference in the analytic dyad? How do we frame it? How ready are we to look inward? What are our resistances as individuals and as a field? How do we deal with a lack of openness to curiosity? What are the resistances to curiosity regarding difference? What is the reluctance to allowing curiosity to develop in analysis? Although the conversation about diversity and race has evolved in some quarters toward issues of “cultural competence” and knowledge, it is our position that a productive psychoanalytic frame would involve a persistent exploration of how we experience curiosity – or its inhibition – in approaching matters of race, difference, and otherness.

2 CME/CE credits offered.

The Dream Cycle of the Analytic Couple with Steven Ellman at The New School

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

The Dream Cycle of the Analytic Couple: a talk by Steven Ellman with an introduction by Sheldon Bach Sunday, April 2, 2017 – 10:00am – 12:30pm, at the New School, Starr Foundation Hall, UL 102, University Center, 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10003

Dr. Ellman’s presentation will explore the analytic process as analogous to the manner in which the dream is an integrated part of a person’s sleep and waking experience. He will postulate that in optimal circumstances the dream is a welcome part of human life, but that unfortunately this is often not the case, as many adults suffer from some type of dreaming (sleep) disturbances. He will show how these disturbances mirror the difficulties in transference-countertransference cycles. He will demonstrate how conceptually enduring transference-countertransference states allow patients to experience their dreams, and he will explain how dreams are discharged in a manner that is parallel to difficulties in tolerating transference manifestations.
