~Rhode Island Chapter presents~

A lecture and discussion

When We Talk, Do You Really Hear Me?

Intersubjectivity and Difference in the Clinical Encounter

Issues of class, culture and gender have been recognized as increasingly important topics in psychoanalytic work. Although social work might always have recognized the importance of environmental factors, how these charged issues emerge in the clinical encounter is often not fully explored. Using theories of intersubjectivity, this presentation focuses on clinical situations in which differences, particularly class differences, became significant aspects of development of the relationship and the therapeutic action.

Cathy Siebold, DSW, LICSW is faculty and supervisor at Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis and Past-President of AAPCSW. She is on the editorial of board of the Clinical Social Work Journal, and has presented and published papers on attachment theory, intersubjectivity, gender and the erotic transference. She is in Private Practice in Cambridge, Ma. and New York City.

This lecture will take place on Friday, April 20 from 12:30-2 pm in the Technology Room of the Rochambeau Library, Hope Street Providence, Rhode Island. Light refreshments will be served. I.5 CEU credits available for $10.00 and includes 1 CEU for diversity.


1. Attendees will gain an understanding of the differing intersubjective perspectives.

2. Attendees will learn the history of discussions of social class in psychoanalysis.

3. Attendees will acquire a greater understanding of the way that class may impact the therapeutic dyad.

All are welcome to attend!
