    Aspiring to tolerate being a “bad”, yet ethical, analyst: Radical openness to one’s ordinary failures

    7-9pm (CST): ZOOM Presentation and discussion


    About the presentation: We ordinarily become psychoanalysts because of early-acquired, conscious and unconscious desires to be helpful to others, starting with our caretakers. Yet, experience shows that a central aspect of each psychoanalytic process ordinarily involves our (rather regular) failure to be helpful to those with whom we work. This is so even in cases that could be regarded as successes. While our unconscious intolerance of such failure is likely to compound its negative impact through various forms of disavowal (including, in some instances, the making of transference interpretations), our willingness to be open to receiving information about, and to considering, how we are hurting instead of helping (and the unconscious, personal bases for such negative impact) is key to enabling analysands to speak as freely and openly as possible as they attempt to formulate their experience, unhindered by their self-subverting protection of their analysts.

    Dr. Hart is Training and Supervising Analyst and Faculty of the William Alanson White Institute. He presents and consults nationally and internationally. He is a member of the Editorial Boards of Psychoanalytic Psychology and Contemporary Psychoanalysis. He has published articles and book chapters on a variety of subjects including psychoanalytic safety and mutuality, issues of racial, sexual, and other diversities, and psychoanalytic pedagogy.  He is a member of the group, Black Psychoanalysts Speak and, also, Co-produced and was featured in the documentary film of the same name. He teaches at The Manhattan Institute, Mt. Sinai Hospital, the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, the National Institute for the Psychotherapies National Training Program, the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, the Institute for Relational Psychoanalysis of Philadelphia, and the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychoanalysis. He serves as Co-Chair of the Holmes Commission on Racial Equality in the American Psychoanalytic Association. He is in full-time private practice of psychoanalysis, individual and couple psychotherapy, psychotherapy supervision and consultation, and organizational consultation, in New York.

    Learning objectives:

    1) Participants will be able to explain how psychoanalysts’ attachment to their own senses of personal goodness can interfere with their ability to receive and consider information to the contrary.

    2) Participants will be able to describe the limitations of a system of psychotherapeutic ethics that relies on adherence to external ethical codes.

    White Privilege: Psychoanalytic Perspectives

    7-9pm (CST) :ZOOM


    About the presentation: In this seminar we will look at race and the significant role it plays in society and in clinical practice. Much of the effort going into racial consciousness-raising rests on the concept of unearned "white privilege". We will look deeply into this notion, suggesting that there are hidden assumptions in the idea of white privilege that perpetuate the very same racially prejudicial notions that are purportedly being dismantled.

    We will examine in depth the structure of racial categories, polarized between white and black, that are socially constructed, resting on fallacious ideas of physical or psychological differences among peoples. We will also critically examines such related concepts as privilege, guilt, and power, suggesting that political positions are also artificially polarized into categories of "liberal", "left" and "conservative", "right", in ways that contribute to stereotyping between people with different political leanings, foreclosing mutual respect, dialogue, and understanding. Finally,we will explore the implications for the theory and practice of psychoanalytic psychotherapy, discussing these ideas in detail and depth with clinical illustrations.

    Neil Altman, PhD,  is a member of the faculty at the William Alanson White Institute in New York City, and at the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis in Boston, He is an Honorary Member of the William Alanson White Society, and Visiting faculty at Ambedkar University of Delhi, India.  He is Editor Emeritus and Associate Editor of Psychoanalytic Dialogues, and on the editorial staff of The Journal of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Psychotherapy, The Journal of Child Psychotherapy, and The International Journal of Applied Psychoanalytic Studies.  He is author of  Psychoanalysis in Times of Accelerating Cultural Change: Spiritual Globalization (2015), The Analyst in the Inner City: Race, Class and Culture through a Psychoanalytic Lens, (2010), and White Privilege: Psychoanalytic Perspectives (2020). :He is co-author of Relational Child Psychotherapy (2002).

    Projective and Introjective Identification:  Graphic Illustrations from Couples Therapy

    7-9pm (CST) :ZOOM Presentation & Discussion

    ****A recording will NOT be available for this session****

     

    About the presentation: The central role of projective and introjective identification in bridging partners’ internal and external worlds, and in increasing role polarization or fostering empathic connection, will be illustrated using a videotaped consultation interview with a married couple.  This clinically-focused presentation includes brief commentary about key elements of projective identification, splitting, holding, and containment.  

    Excerpts from a consultation interview will be presented, including the following:

    1.A powerful, clinically-significant sequence of projective/introjective identification between spouses at the very beginning that reveals core relationship dynamics and issues, which are later the topic of heated discussions;

    2.Sequences of projective/introjective identification that contribute to the polarization of the couple into “pursuer” and “distancer” roles (“splitting”), thus demonstrating their key role in mediating between the intrapsychic and the interpersonal (or systemic);

    3.Examples of projective/introjective identification between the husband and the therapist that positively and negatively affect the empathic connection, illustrating challenges in “containment” and “holding.” 

    Peter Reiner, PhD, LMFT is Vice-President and Faculty of the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis (CCP), Faculty at The Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, and was Coordinator of Clinical Training at the Family Institute of Chicago.  Peter is an award-winning teacher who has led more than 50 graduate and post-graduate classes or seminars in systemically-oriented couple and family psychotherapy and psychodynamically-oriented psychotherapy.  Dr. Reiner has written at length about the training and supervision of psychodynamically-oriented couple and family therapists, including “Training psychodynamic family therapists,” (in Lebow, Chambers, & Breunlin [Eds.] Encyclopedia of Couple and Family Therapy, 2017) and “Systemic psychodynamic supervision,” (in Todd & Storm [Eds.], The Complete Systemic Supervisor:  Context, Philosophy, and Pragmatics [2nd ed.], 2014).  Dr. Reiner maintains a private practice in Chicago of psychoanalysis; psychoanalytic and systemic psychotherapy with individuals, couples, and families; and consultation.

    Learning objectives:

    1. Participants will be able to appreciate key role of projective identification in translating between the intrapsychic and the interpersonal realms

    2.Participants will be able to identify principles for intervening with narcissistically-vulnerable couples

    This is an all  level presentation.

    Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
    Certificate Program


    The CCP Certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program provides a course of study in psychoanalytic theory and therapy for interested individuals – both clinicians and theorists – who would like to deepen their knowledge of the field.

    Directed by Adina Bayuk Keesom, PsyD, the program has two tracks,  a clinical track and an academic track for those who wish to strengthen their backgrounds in psychoanalytic theory but who are not practicing clinicians. Students in the academic track will follow the same program as students in the clinical track, although their focus will be determined through discussion with their individual consultants.

    For a detailed description of the Two-Year Certificate Program, and the additional offerings of a Third Year Bridge Certificate Program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, please read the details on the PPCP page.
