    Sticks and Stones: Perspectives on Enactment in Psychoanalysis

    Tuesday, June 10, 2014
    8:00 PM

    "Sticks and Stones: Perspectives on Enactment in Psychoanalysis" with Theodore Jacobs, Donnel Stern, & Leon Hoffman (moderator)

    As described in "Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts," the concept of enactment (a co-constructed experience between patient and analyst) has been present in the psychoanalytic literature for many years. As a result of the greater influence of object relational, relational, and interpersonal theories it has been given more attention in recent decades.

    The panelists will discuss their understanding of the concept, its theoretical usefulness, and its applicability in psychoanalytic treatment.

    Funding for this video recording has been provided by the American Psychoanalytic Foundation through the American Psychoanalytic Association.
