God at an Analytic Impasse: Poverty, Devotion, and the Elusive Self – May 11, 2012

God at an Analytic Impasse: Poverty, Devotion, and the Elusive Self

The Suffolk Institute For Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

PRESENTS

God at an Analytic Impasse:
Poverty, Devotion, and the Elusive Self

Co-sponsored by:

The NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychoanalysis

and

The Division of Psychoanalysis of
The New York State Psychological Association

Friday, May 11, 2012

6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Registration and light meal from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

NYU Kimmel Center

60 Washington Square South, #914/912
New York, NY 10012

Guest Speaker:
Sue Grand, Ph.D.,
author of The Hero in the Mirror: From Fear to Fortitude and
The Reproduction of Evil: A Clinical and Cultural Perspective

Discussants:
Lewis Aron, Ph.D., ABPP & Jeff Wells, M.Div.

Dr. Grand’s fascinating paper presents her work with a migrant worker who struggles out of poverty to become a physician and caretaker. Unknown to himself as a human subject, his life is a devotion to the needy other. His own health is compromised and his sacrificial practices draw him close to near-death. Analysis of his masochism fails. To save his life, the dyad must examine his Christian convictions of passion, devotion, and sacrifice. These values collide with the analyst’s philosophical/metaphysical system, derived from relational analytic theory, her own reform Jewish ethos, and atheistic beliefs. Can patient and analyst meet — and save his life?

Please join Dr. Grand, her discussants, and many colleagues as we explore this compelling intersection of psychoanalysis, religion, and social justice in the consulting room.

For further information and to register, go to WWW.NYSPA.ORG or call NYSPA central office at: (800) 732-3933.

CE credits offered.

Integrating

Psychotherapy Research & Clinical Practice:

Let’s Create a Dialogue

Dr. Jacques P. Barber

Dean, Gordon F. Derner Institute of

Advanced Psychological Studies

Adelphi University

Dr. Barber will address: How we study the efficacy of psychotherapy with a focus on dynamic therapy?

Dr. Barber will especially focus on the evidence available regarding dynamic therapy for depression. He will then describe a large randomized clinical trial (RCT) that he has conducted examining the efficacy of Supportive-Expressive Therapy, a form of Short-Term Dynamic Therapy in comparison to SSRI and Placebo (Barber, JP, Barrett MS, Gallop R, Rynn MA, Rickels K (2012). Short-term dynamic psychotherapy versus pharmacotherapy for major depressive disorder: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial. The Journal Of Clinical Psychiatry 73 (1): 66-73). After examining some implications of the results of this study and other RCTs, he will end by suggesting how to perhaps integrate psychotherapy research with clinical practice with the hope of engaging the audience in this process and eliciting feedback.

An electronic copy of the article is available from hoffman.leon

NYPSI: LACAN’S RETURN TO FREUD

PLEASE JOIN NYPSI AS IT CONTINUES ITS

CENTENARY CELEBRATION

CELEBRATING A CENTURY OF ADVANCEMENT THROUGH SELF-KNOWLEDGE

THE NEW YORK PSYCHOANALYTIC SOCIETY & INSTITUTE:

Extension Committee

247 East 82nd St., between 2nd & 3rd, NY, NY 10028

LACAN’S

RETURN TO FREUD

& ITS CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS

Jamieson Webster, Ph.D. &

David Lichtenstein, Ph.D.

Thursdays

8 – 10 pm

May 3 – June 7, 2012

(6 sessions)

Fee: $120

Jacques Lacan is a Parisian psychoanalyst whose clinical theory is little known to many in the U.S., often because his work is rarely translated into English. The clinical field of Lacanian psychoanalysis, however, is one of the fastest growing, extending across Europe, South America, and Australia. Lacan’s ideas concerning the handling of transference, analytic listening, the place of unconscious fantasy, theories of interpretation, and the unfolding of the cure, are valuable additions to understanding our work with patients. This program serves as an introduction to Lacanian clinical ideas and their practical uses for therapists and analysts.

We will overview Freud texts covered by Lacan in his seminars, and Lacan’s discussions of his own theories regarding the mirror stage, the theory of the object, the importance of the death drive, the structuring of fantasy, jouissance, and the end of analysis. We will cover a range of readings, including Freud and Lacan’s commentary on Freud, as well as papers by contemporary Lacanians published in English. We will provide case material for illustration.

Dr. Webster is in private practice in NY and is an advanced candidate at NYPSI. She is on the faculty at Eugene Lang and NYU; and she teaches and supervises externs and interns at both IPTAR and NYPSI. She is the author of The Life and Death of Psychoanalysis (Karnac 2011).

Dr. Lichtenstein is in private practice in NY. He is on the faculty at CUNY’s doctoral program in clinical psychology; founding member of Apres-Coup Psychoanalytic Association; and editor of Division/Review, a quarterly publication on psychoanalysis by Division 39. He has written extensively on psychoanalysis, Lacan, his clinical work with children, art and politics.

Writing Madness | Radio Times

Writing Madness | Radio Times

http://www.radiotimes.com/episode/px458/writing-madness

Men weren’t mad in Victorian times, only women. As ludicrous as this sounds now, one only has to look at Victorian literature to see how the mental state of the sexes was viewed: women lay lifeless on chaise longues at the healthiest end of a breakdown or, at the opposite extreme, they were confined to attics for the safety of those around them.

Vivienne Parry is joined by a professor of English, a psychiatrist, a historian, and the chair of the trustees of the Freud Museum among others, to analyse how literature developed from the archetypal madwoman that is the skeletal, obsessive Miss Havisham in Great Expectations, through to a post-First World War society where Virginia Woolf shocked her readers with a suicidal male character inMrs Dalloway.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME

Vivienne Parry explores the relationship between early 20th-century literature and psychiatry. She analyses the heroines of Virginia Woolf’s novel Mrs Dalloway and F Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender Is the Night, and considers both authors’ views on the connection between `madness’ and creativity. She also considers how the books reflect the growing popularity of psychotherapy at the time, and compares their depictions of mental health with those in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. With contributions by psychiatrists Simon Wessely and Chris Thompson, psychotherapist Adam Philips and cultural historian Lisa Appignanesi.

-Jung Film Festival-
Moderated by
Cynthia Luft, M.A.
Friday–Mar. 30–7:00-9:00 pm The World Within: C. G. Jung In His Own Words

Jung believed that the images of the unconscious place a great responsibility on mankind and failure to understand these can deprive one of wholeness and impose fragmentation on life. In The World Within, this idea is explored in depth as we are given a glimpse inside Jung’s Red Book, the diary in which he described his dreams and fantasies.

Cynthia Luft, M.A., is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Westchester and New York City. Cynthia trained at the C. G. Jung Insitute in New York City and at the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association. Currently, she is a member of the teaching faculty at both the Westchester Institute and at the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association. Cynthia’s special interests include the application of Jung’s theories in today’s world, particularly as related to the prevailing influence of cynicism and perfectionism.
