AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR PSYCHOANALYSIS
IN CLINICAL SOCIAL WORK – AAPCSW
March 14-17, 2013 Durham, North Carolina
UNDER ONE TENT:
PSYCHOANALYTIC INSIGHTS, IDENTITIES, AND INCLUSIONS
Psychoanalysis has had a sometimes painful history of splintering into disparate, exclusive groups. Some voices have been muted, while others have been privileged. Contemporary psychoanalytic theories and techniques pull from many sources and encourage multiple orientations. What is gained and what is lost by our efforts at integration or separateness? Is there still space for debate and dissent? In addition, how do issues of identity, race, gender, sexual orientation, and social class inform and challenge theory and practice? In an effort to deepen our understanding and enrich our practice, this conference seeks to facilitate dialogue among clinicians and scholars from a broad spectrum of the psychoanalytic community.
