The Dialogue of Unconsciouses, Mutual Analysis and the Uses of the Self in Contemporary Relational Psychotherapy.
7-9pm: (CST): ZOOM Presentation & Discussion
About the presentation: This presentation will explore the ways in which analytic psychotherapy is a mutual endeavor, in which patients and analysts come to know more about themselves, grow, change, and experience personal transformation as a function of their encounter with the other. Ferenczi’s experiments in mutual analysis, and his emphasis on a ‘dialogue of unconsciouses’ at the heart of psychoanalytic work will serve as a point of departure for the discussion.
