“Works in Progress” Seminar Series

The Usage of Psychoanalytic Concepts to Inform Direct Intervention with an Avoidant Infant and her Parents

Wednesday, February 1, 2017
8:00 PM

Presenter: Christine Anzieu, M.D., Ph.D.

How can some classical Freudian concepts such as defense, transference, infantile sexuality, the role of body ego and super ego in the first year of life be applied to help the analyst working with parent-infant dyads?

The case of a newborn that could not look at her mother, who didn’t feel empathy towards this child conceived from an egg donor, was understood using Winnicott’s notion of early superego and the lack of libidinal pleasure. The notion of defenses towards primitive anxiety and the role of the unconscious maternal functioning were helpful in helping the baby as well as the parents to regulate their interactions.

Scientific Program Meeting

Reality is Real - It's Not All Fantasy

Free For Members & NYPSI Students

Tuesday, February 14, 2017
8:00 PM

Presenter: Martin Silverman, MD
Discussant: Anna Balas, MD

Sigmund Freud could not believe what patients told him about sexual and other forms of abuse by family members. This, together with his observations about psychosexual development, led him to over-emphasize the role of fantasy in generating emotional problems. In this communication, extensive clinical material is provided to support the thesis that what patients report about past and present impingement upon them from the outside world is equally important and needs to be taken very seriously.

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.

A SPECIAL SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM MEETING

Oxford-Style Debate with Drs. Rachel Blass and Mark Solms

Friday, March 31, 2017

Oxford-Style Debate with Rachel Blass, PhD and Mark Solms, PhD

The Motion:
"This house believes that neuroscience has nothing to contribute to the clinical practice of psychoanalysis."

In this Oxford-Style Debate, the audience will vote for or against the above motion before the presentations begin and then, again, afterward. Each speaker will present his/her case (about 20 mins each), respond to the other's case (about 10 mins each), and take questions from the floor (about 20 mins). The aim is to see who swayed the audience more in what will surely be an exciting and unpredictable debate.

Mark Solms will present first, Rachel Blass second, and Lois Oppenheim will moderate.

No CME/ CE credits offered.

This event is supported by a grant from the IPA CAPSA Fund.

Scientific Program Meeting

Is there an unconscious organization of the couple?

Free For Members & NYPSI Students

Tuesday, May 9, 2017
8:00 PM

Presenters: Graciela Abelin-Sas Rose, MD and Peter Mezan, PhD
Discussants: Eric Weitzner, MD and Virginia Goldner, PhD

In this paper presentation, Drs. Abelin-Sas Rose and Mezan will discuss results of a collaborative study by two analysts working in two different modalities, individual and couple, with the same patients. Differences in the analysts’ perceptions of the patients, in the narratives presented by the patients, and in the transferences to the analysts and to the partner are considered. And the dynamics in the two settings, with the unconscious organization of the couple distinct from the unconscious organizations of the individuals, are discussed. The question of how, in the process of constituting the couple, the individual is transformed and acquires a new identity will constitute the primary focus of the presentation.
