Professional Development Workshop 1

Speakers: Mark D. Smaller, Ph.D; William H. Braun, Psy.D.; Gail M. Saltz, M.D; Keith Kanner, Ph.D.

This Roundtable is the second of a two-part presentation by APsaA member Keith Kanner of San Diego. Dr. Kanner is the author of the recently published “Your Family Matters”. He is also a child &adult analyst in private practice, as well as a regular contributor for the local FOX TV affiliate, wherehe provides parenting advice and answers viewers’ questions on adolescent development. Dr.Kanner leads participants in the finer points of discussing current events through a psychoanalytic lens when interacting with the media, or writing opinion pieces for mainstream news publications. For this session, discusses how his involvement on TV and radio, his books and participation with a national non-profit organization have helped increase awareness both for his private practice and for psychoanalysis in the San Diego area. Dr. Kanner and the co-chairs of the workshop also coach participants on how to think of newsworthy ‘pitches’ that win over journalists and help attract positive coverage of psychoanalytic topics and programs.

Scientific Paper Prize for Psychoanalytic Research: Changes of brain activation pre- post short-term psychodynamic inpatient psychotherapy: An fMRI study of panic disorder patients

Speakers: Manfred E. Beutel, MD, (Mainz, Germany); Jerald Kay, MD (Dayton, OH); Barbara Milrod, MD (New York, NY)

A number of neuro-imaging studies have shown that effective psychotherapy also affects brain function. Based on a brief review of pertinent methods and previous findings, the first functional MRI study assessing panic disorder patients before and after psychodynamic therapy are presented. The results indicate psychodynamic treatment leads to changes in fronto-limbic circuitry, similar to previous findings on cognitive-behavioral treatments. In the analyses of long-term follow-up data, evidence further shows that the change in amygdala reactivity is predictive of improvement 3 years post-treatment. Opportunities and limitations of the application of neuro-imaging technologies in psychotherapy research are discussed.

Plenary Address: Core Issues in the Treatment of Personality Disordered Patients

Speakers: George G. Fishman, MD (Chestnut Hill, MA); Dan H. Buie, MD (Wellesley Hills, MA); Robert Lindsay Pyles, MD, President-Elect (Wellesley Hills, MA)

Neurotic patients possess the capacities required for maintaining their basic self-stability. Personality disordered patients do not. They continuously need to depend on others to provide them with the capacities they need in order to maintain basic self-stability. Clinical experience and relevant literature indicate that these capacities are five in number. They concern self-realness, self-holding so as not to experience aloneness, self-worth, self-love, and identity. This presentation focuses on understanding the consequences of deficits of these capacities along with treatments that can enable patients to develop these capacities for themselves.

Presidential Symposium: Minding the Markets: How Psychoanalysis Can Help to Build New Economics and Finance Thinking

Speakers: Robert A. Johnson, MA, PhD (Exec Director of the Institute of New Economic Thinking); Professor David Tuckett (London, England); Warren R. Procci, MD, President (Pasadena, CA)

APsaA’s international colleague, David Tuckett, has sought to contribute to the development of a new field of “emotional finance” with a specific interest in understanding the recent and continuing financial crisis. Human emotion has a critical impact on financial markets and, until very recently, economic theories have failed to take this into account. At the heart of the worst financial crisis in decades is a failure to organize markets in a way that puts controls on the very human emotion and behavior which trading unleashes. Robert Johnson and David Tuckett each speak on this subject and then lead a discussion concerning how psychological and psychoanalytic concepts can offer considerable assistance in understanding the sometimes irrational behavior of people and markets.

Research Symposium: Parental Mentalizing in Action: Verbal and Embodied Parental Mentalizing in Theory and Clinical Practice

Speakers: Dana Shai, PhD (Herzliya, Israel); Arietta Slade, PhD (New York, NY); Nancy E. Suchman, PhD (New Haven, CT); Mary Target, PhD (London, England); Robert J. Waldinger, MD (West Newton, MA)

Parental mentalizing is a significant factor shaping the infant’s socio-emotional development and is the focus of this symposium. Two papers focus on intervention programs designed to enhance parental mentalizing in high risk families — Minding the Baby and Mothering from the Inside Out, including results of randomized controlled trial studies demonstrating the efficacy of these interventions. The third paper will introduce Parental Embodied Mentalization — a method of observational assessment involving the scrutiny of the whole-body nonverbal interactive process between mothers and infants that predicts attachment security. This session explores how parental mentalizing can enhance children’s socio-emotional wellbeing.

Community Symposium: Psychodynamic Explorations of Power, Gender, and Identity in Twenty First Century - Variants of the “Black Nanny — White Master” Syndrome

Speakers: Dorothy E. Holmes, PhD (Bluffton, SC); Carlotta G. Miles, MD (Washington, DC); Bruce Sklarew, MD (Chevy Chase, MD)

The black nanny caring for white babies in oppressive, racist contexts was a common occurrence in our culture up to the civil rights era. The psychodynamics of the black nanny’s impact on the identities of the whites reared in those circumstances are considered. The modern extensions of that history is manifest in nannies/au pairs of color from the Caribbean and Africa, and whites from Europe in their rearing of children in both Black and White families. Clinical data to illuminate psychodynamics of power, sexuality, defenses, and identity formation played out in these modern day expressions are presented. Implications for other relationships in our society with obvious power differentials that may or may not involve differences in color (e.g., the bank teller in relation to his/her employer and/or customer) are discussed.

Symposium I: El Sistema/Abreu Fellows, and Psychoanalysis: Beyond the Concert Hall and Consulting Room

Speakers: Julie Jaffee Nagel, PhD (Ann Arbor, MI); Marie Montilla (Pittsfield, MA); Patrick Slevin (Austin, TX); Michael Slevin, MSW (Baltimore, MD)

Like psychoanalysis, Western classical music is, in some quarters, thought to be esoteric and elitist. Orchestras struggle to retain aging audiences and bring in the young. El Sistema USA and the Abreu Fellows transplant an idea that grew from 11 music students to a vibrant institution teaching 300,000 of Venezuela’s poorest children. Music, study and performance, transforms individuals and their communities through self-knowledge and self-esteem — core goals of psychoanalysis. Brief presentations by two El Sistema/Abreu musician/organizers and a psychoanalyst/musician are integrated with audio/visual materials to illustrate synergy between music and psychoanalysis.

Scientific Paper 1: : 9/11And the India/Pakistan Partition: Trauma and Dissociation

Speakers: Alan Roland, PhD (New York, NY), Author

This paper adds new dimensions to the understanding of trauma and dissociation by exploring personal and patients’ reactions to the experience of 9/11, and by in-depth interviews with a Jain Indian family caught in a train massacre in 1947 during the India/Pakistan Partition. For the former, the emotional resonance of 9/11 feelings of catastrophe with a traumatic visual/emotional dissociated memory from 18 months old enabled it to surface; while for the latter, the train massacre and disappearance of the two youngest siblings has had ripple effects not only inter-generationally but throughout the family.

Scientific Paper 4: Neutrality and the Ethics of Desire

Speakers: Author: Lewis A. Kirshner, MD (Cambridge, MA)

In this paper, the concept of an ethics specific to psychoanalysis are explored through a critical reading of Lacan’s seminar, The Ethics of Psychoanalysis. While it must obviously address moral concerns, a psychoanalytic ethics should also embody a unique perspective on human nature growing out of analytic experience and knowledge. In particular, the analyst’s desire is always in play in his attempt to sustain an ethical position. An examination of Lacan’s seminar highlights this link, but also points to a number of unresolved problems.

Plenary Address: The Analyst’s Narcissism

Speakers: Warren R. Procci, MD, President (Pasadena, CA); Alan B. Zients, MD (New York, NY); Judith F.Chused, MD (Washington, DC)

The plenary address focuses on the narcissistic vulnerability of the psychoanalyst that is inherent in the practice of psychoanalysis. Using case vignettes, Dr. Chused details the problems presented by the analyst’s vulnerability to psychic injury as well as by the potential for grandiose self-representation and expectations. During the presentation several recommendations are developed as to how the analyst’s inevitable vulnerability to narcissistic injury and grandiose thinking can be used to further the course of an analysis.

Educators Symposium: Executive Function Disorders and Disorders of the Self: Exploring No Man’s Land

Speakers: Tillie C. Garfinkel, M.Ed (Silver Spring, MD); Joseph Palombo, MA (Chicago, IL); Stephen D. Kerzner, MD (Duxbury, MA); Tillie C. Garfinkel, M.Ed. (Silver Spring, MD); Stephen D. Kerzner, MD (Duxbury, MA)

This symposium is geared to APsaA Educator Associates, K-12 educators, psychoanalysts, and mental health professionals. Executive functioning disorders are brain based dysfunctions involving neuropsychological deficits, often producing deficits in the sense of self. A complex relationship exists between executive functions and ADHD. The integration of neuropsychological and psychodynamic factors requires a new paradigm incorporating neuropsychological, relational, and intra-psychic dimensions. This session explores implications of this new paradigm. Joseph Palombo is a clinical social worker, and founding Dean, Institute for Clinical Social Work, and faculty Rush Neurobehavioral Center and affiliated with Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. Stephen Kerzner, psychoanalyst and school consultant, provides a psychoanalytic perspective.

Neuroscience Symposium: Empirical Social Cognitive Neuroscience Research as a Basis for a Comprehensive Theory of Psychotherapeutic Change

Speakers: George G. Fishman, MD (Chestnut Hill, MA); Andrew J. Gerber, MD, PhD (New York, NY); Glen O. Gabbard, MD (Houston, TX)

This session proposes a theory of psychotherapeutic change composed of three components: (1) Exposure (aka making the unconscious conscious), (2) Restructuring of relationship representations (aka transference and interpersonal work), and (3) Co-construction of a coherent narrative (aka developing a secure attachment). Empirical data from contemporary social cognitive neuroscience, including Dr. Andrew Gerber’s data from an fMRI adaptation of Susan Andersen’s transference paradigm, are used to support this argument and to propose empirically testable hypotheses about therapeutic change and the appropriate tailoring of interventions to specific patients and situations. Some pilot data from MRI studies of therapeutic change across different types of psychotherapy are presented. All are discussed in the context of a psychoanalytic metapsychology and relevance to the relationship between psychoanalysis and empirical research.

Scientific Paper 5: : The Dignity of the Thing: Lacan’s Ethics of Sublimation

Speakers: Author: Mari Ruti, PhD (Toronto, Canada)

This paper illustrates why Lacan’s theory of sublimation — of raising an ordinary object into “the dignity of the Thing” — introduces a code of ethics that enables the individual to resist dominant social norms. This alternative ethical code is not a matter of deliberating on the rightness or wrongness of actions, but rather of following the thread of one’s desire even when doing so proves socially inconvenient. Because it allows the individual to create space for desires, values, and patterns of appreciation that reach beyond the “reality principle” of the collectivity, it functions as an effective antidote to contemporary nihilism.

Speakers: Melinda Gellman, PhD (New York, NY); Marilla Aisenstein, PhD (Paris, France); Carol Gilligan, PhD* (New York, NY); Donald B. Moss, MD (New York, NY); Deborah Luepnitz, PhD (Philadelphia, PA); Reporter: Phoebe Ann Cirio, MSW, LCSW (St. Louis, MO)

This panel revisits a concept essential to psychoanalysis from its origins to the present day, considering it within contemporary contexts. Desire and being desired are discussed from traditional and evolving perspectives, highlighting their place in the psychoanalytic canon, in individual development, their relationship to culture, and impact within the treatment dyad. Clinical material and discussion among the panelists illustrates the ways in which we encounter and conceptualize desire in clinical practice.

Meet the Author: Dr. Steven Cooper

Speakers: Hans Agrawal, MD (Cambridge, MA); Kenneth M. Newman, MD (Chicago, IL); Author: Steven Cooper, PhD (Cambridge, MA)

Book: A Disturbance in the Field: Essays in Transference/Counter-Transference Engagement.” The field, as Steven Cooper describes it, is comprised of the inextricably related worlds of internalized object relations and interpersonal interaction. His essays try to locate some of the most ineffable types of situations for the analyst to take up with patients, such as the underlying grandiosity of self-criticism; the problems of too much congruence between what a patient fantasizes about and the analyst’s anticipatory fantasies related to treatment. Provocatively, he takes up the analyst’s counter-transference to the psychoanalytic method itself, including a variety of levels of thinking about and not thinking the transference/counter-transference and his uses of reverie.

Special Symposium "Freud's Last Session" — The Creative Process of Playwright, Mark St. Germain

Speakers: Mark St. Germain, Playwright of Freud’s Last Session (New York, NY); Chair & Moderator: Julie Jaffee Nagel, PhD (Ann Arbor, Michigan)

In this session, playwright Mark St. Germain discusses the creation of his award-winning play that centers upon a lively, provocative, and moving imaginary dialogue between Sigmund Freud and writer, C.S. Lewis in Freud’s study in London. On the day England entered World War II and two weeks before Freud’s death, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex, and the meaning of life. “FREUD’S LAST SESSION” is the winner of the 2011 Broadway Alliance Award for Best Play, and is the longest running play from last season on or Off-Broadway. It premiered to rave reviews and immediately became a sellout.

Panel IV: Siblings, Identity Development and Clinical Process

Speakers: Rosemary Balsam, MD (New Haven, CT); Christine C. Kieffer, PhD (Chicago, IL); Jeanine M. Vivona, PhD (Philadelphia, PA); Joseph D. Lichtenberg, MD (Bethesda, MD); Salman Akhtar, MD (Ardmore, PA); Reporter: Gabriel Ruiz, MA, LCPC (Chicago, IL)

This panel examines the influence of siblings on identity development from multiple theoretical perspectives. The objective of the panel is to expand theoretical and clinical appreciation for the lifelong developmental contributions of siblings. The panelists focus in particular upon the impact of sibling recognition in the construction of identity as well as explore the contributions of “psychoanalytic siblings,” that is, those other patients, seen and unseen, may contribute to the elaboration of transference themes and transference/counter-transference enactments. Finally, the panel focuses on how those without biological siblings may seek sibling equivalents, particularly in the course of treatment. Each panelist contributes a short clinical vignette to illustrate these themes.
