REFLECTIONS ON NARCISSISM, MANIA AND ANALYSTS’ ENVY

Presenter: Irwin Hirsch, Ph.D.

Analysts’ envy of very high achieving patients all too often leads to retaliation by pathologizing such individuals. This can reflect analysts’ efforts to deal with personal feelings of comparative inadequacy through the use of allegedly objective diagnosis, in particular, diagnoses of pathological narcissism and hypomania.

Irwin Hirsch Ph.D. is distinguished visiting Faculty of The William Alanson White Institute; Faculty, Supervisor and Former Director of The Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis; Adjunct Clinical Professor of Psychology and Supervisor of The Postdoctoral Program in
Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis at New York University. Dr. Hirsch is Co-editor of Arts and Culture and Contemporary Psychoanalysis and is on the editorial board of Psychoanalytic Dialogues, Psychoanalytic Perspectives and Ricerca Psicoanalitica. He is author of over 70 psychoanalytic articles, chapters and reviews, as well as the Goethe Award winning book Coasting in the Countertransference: Conflicts of Self-Interest between Analyst and Patient.

SPEAKING TO THE NARCISSISTIC DISORDERS with George Gross, M.D. at NYPSI

SPEAKING TO THE NARCISSISTIC DISORDERS

George Gross, M.D.

Wednesdays
7:30 – 9 pm
October 17 – November 14, 2012
5 sessions
Fee $200

Freud identified transference as the prime vehicle for analytic interpretation while separating the transference neuroses from the “narcissistic psychoneuroses” (“depression and the schizophrenias”) for which he claimed “inaccessibility.” Over time, however, those narcissistic conditions have received their fair and increasing share of attention. These meetings will look into the ways analysts dealing with such patients render their treatments psychotherapeutic and even, at times, psychoanalytic.

Dr. Gross is past President, NYPSI; past Medical Director of NYPSI Treatment Center; Training & Supervising Analyst, NYPSI

PANY’s 32nd Annual Maurice R. Friend Lecture, Monday, October 15th, 8:30 pm, Lecturer: Lawrence Friedman, MD

Psychoanalytic Association of New York

32nd Annual Maurice R. Friend Lecture

The Analyst Blocks Action, Dissects Time, and Gets Away With It

Lecturer: Lawrence Friedman, MD

Introduction by: Shelly Orgel, MD

Chair, Friend Lecture Committee: Jack Pelaccio, MD

Monday, October 15, 2012

8:30 pm

Alumni Hall B

NYU Langone Medical Center, 550 First Avenue, NYC

Educational Objectives

After attending this meeting, participants should be able to recognize one of the less conspicuous hardships patients are exposed to in the analytic process. Analysts will be reminded that a non-directive therapy is an active interference with normal conversation. We will consider the possibility that it fosters not just time travel, but an unsettling disruption in the experience of time. That consideration also offers another view of some familiar phenomena, such as social construction of reality, enactment, the hermeneutics of interventions, and the general action of psychoanalytic treatment.

Summary

Psychoanalysis deals with the personhood of patients. A person is a blend of animal and historical natures. By interfering with patients’ actions, the Freudian analyst dissects the two kinds of time that are associated with these two aspects, even as he participates in their reweaving.

Accreditation Statement

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council
for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the American Psychoanalytic Association and the Psychoanalytic
Association of New York. The American Psychoanalytic Association is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Psychoanalytic Association designates this Live Activity for a maximum of 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their
participation in the activity.

IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE INFORMATION FOR ALL LEARNERS: None of the planners and presenters of this CME program have any relevant financial relationships to disclose.

This scientific session is open to psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, & other mental health professionals.
