Works in Progress Seminar: Who was R.D. Laing?
During the countercultural revolution of the 1960s and 70s, R.D. Laing was the most famous psychiatrist in the world — and arguably the most controversial psychoanalytic thinker since Freud. Regarded as the father of the antipsychiatry movement, Laing challenged the basis of conventional psychiatric treatment, particularly with regard to schizophrenics. His ideas enraged the psychiatric establishment but caught the imagination of the public at large. Laing’s books – The Divided Self, Sanity, Madness, and the Family, and The Politics of Experience – sold millions of copies and cemented his status as a culture hero. But by the time Laing died in 1989, his influence had all but vanished. Dr. Mezan will give a portrait of the man and his ideas, based on his encounters and friendship with Laing and the world surrounding him. (more…)

Modern Kleinian Clinical Case Seminars with Phee Rosnick and Ann Rudovsky at CFS

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Modern Kleinian Clinical Case Seminars
Three-Session Program (6 Contact Hours)
Presenters: Phee Rosnick, PhD and Ann Rudovsky, LCSW
Date: Fridays, April 14, May 12, and June 2, 2017
Time: 1:30-3:30pm

These clinical seminars will focus on the contribution the Modern Kleinians have made to working with patients with more severe pathology. Typically, they struggle with either absent or persecutory internalized objects, cruel superegos, feelings of fragmentation, and a failure of self-object differentiation. Primitive defenses including projective identification, splitting, denial, manic triumph, as well as omnipotent solutions and devaluation are used in an attempt to avoid overwhelming feelings of anxiety, despair, and/or narcissistic humiliation. These patients are prone to develop intense and primitive transferences which in turn provoke disturbing counter- (more…)

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.
