Professional Development Workshop 1 – Guidelines for Engaging with the Media

Speakers: William H. Braun, Geralyn Leaderman, Gail Saltz MD

Mental health professionals are sought after by members of the media seeking background information or quotes for their stories. Engaging with the media offers analysts the opportunity to lend a news story a psychoanalytic perspective, leading to a greater understanding of psychoanalysis among members of the public. This workshop addresses how to give an interview for print, television and radio, what to keep in mind when speaking to reporters and tips for staying on message. We also discuss writing successful opinion pieces and letters-to-the-editor.

Plenary Address: Second Century for Psychoanalysis and for APsaA — Their Fates May Differ

Speakers: Warren Procci

Psychoanalysis has entered its second century. The current state of the field is mixed, and somewhat bifurcated. Psychoanalysis as a discipline, as a theoretical corpus, and as an area for academic inquiry is holding its own if not necessarily thriving. Contrarily, psychoanalysis as represented in its institutes, societies, centers, and especially within APsaA, our major professional organization, is in a serious decline. The complex reasons for these quite different situations are examined. An inability of the major competing components of our organization to work towards meaningful compromise is, in the speaker’s view, a major factor. Some thoughts concerning what must be done, and quickly, are offered.

Presidential Symposium: The Twilight of the Training Analysis System

Speakers: Robert L. Pyles

This presentation will summarize the principal analyses of the training analysis system formulated over the past 30 years, pointing to this system’s relevance regarding authoritarianism, infantilization, intellectual stultification, and institutional corruption in psychoanalytic education. The question is raised, whether replacing the present structure of psychoanalytic institutes and governance of psychoanalytic education may have a renovating effect on psychoanalytic science and profession, and on the impact of psychoanalysis on the broader scientific, cultural, and mental health environment. One such possible model of modern transformation of psychoanalytic education is presented, its advantages and constraints discussed, and the inevitable resistances to change explored.

Symposium I: Embodiment & Subjectivity

Speakers: Andrea Celenza, John C. Foehl, Jessica Benjamin

This symposium addresses the role of the body through phenomenal experiencing, i.e., embodiment, as conceptualized by philosophical writers and contemporary relational theorists (especially from the perspective of intersubjectivity). Presymbolic, unmentalized bodily experience provides a ground of skin-contact and rhythmicity from which the capacities of differentiating and integrating experiences arise, especially as these are organized around a variety of binaries: inner/outer, self/other and female/male. Psychopathology is understood as a collapse of dialectical interplay, causing disruptions in early patterns of interpersonal recognition, flexibility and play. Presenters discuss how transcending binarial constraints can result in greater creativity and overall well-being.

Scientific Paper 1: The Psychoanalyst and the Clinic: A Balint Group for Psychiatrists

Speakers: Jonathan Sklar; Norman V. Kohn

The paper offers an original description of Balint Group methodology and its relevance for training psychiatrists. Central is the understanding that the psychiatrist presents his clinical problem with the patient. Making the doctor’s counter-transference central to the process moves it away from being supervision i.e., the technical acquisition of skills. This is key for Balint, for whom acquiring psychodynamics “entails a limited, though considerable change in the doctor’s personality.” This paper is a tribute to developing Balint’s ideas and offering graphic vignettes of the difficulty and value of working with psychiatrists in this way. The author is a Training and Supervising analyst at the British Psychoanalytical Society.

Psychoanalysis & Health Care Reform: Impact of the Presidential & Congressional Elections on Psychiatry & Psychoanalysis

Speakers: James C. Pyles

This session is for all members of APsaA and outlines the effect the November 2012 elections will have on health reform and the practice of psychiatry and psychoanalysis. The Affordable Care Act was signed into law in March 2011 and was held constitutional by the Supreme Court on June 28, 2012. Republican members of the House and the Republican candidate for president have pledged to repeal it. APsaA counsel, Jim Pyles has been closely involved in the health reform debate and provides analysis and insight into what the elections mean for health reform.

Speakers: Stanley J. Coen, Robert Brustein, Michael Wood, Paul Schwaber

Robert Brustein, Professor Emeritus of English at Harvard; Founder of the Yale Repertory and American Repertory Theatres, playwright, author (“The Tainted Muse: Prejudice and Presumption in Shakespeare and His Time”), and recipient of the National Medal of Arts, talks about: how easily the forces of good can be overwhelmed by the forces of evil, Iago as a new kind of image in literature, and the embodiment of a world without a vigilant God. Michael Wood, Charles Barnwell Straut Class of 1923 Professor of English and Comparative Literature, at Princeton, author (“Shakespeare”), critic (New York and London Reviews of Books), will talk about how language works in “Othello” as a means of seduction and almost becomes a character in its own right.

PPRS Research Forum: Treatment Notes: Objective Measures of Language Style Point to Clinical Insights

Speakers: Leon Hoffman, Jane Algus, William Braun, Wilma Bucci, Bernard Maskit, John Porcerelli

This session presents the systematic evaluation of the language of treatment notes written by psychoanalytic candidates for fourteen analyses carried out under supervision at the NY Psychoanalytic Institute. The notes were analyzed using computerized measures of the referential process developed by Bucci and Maskit. This session explores how linguistic measures mirror the clinical course, comparing one successful with one unsuccessful case. The measures point to nodal periods in the analytic work, which were clinically examined to ascertain why one case progressed, with a successful termination, while the other did not, ending with a forced interruption by the analyst.

Scientific Paper 3: Edith Wharton’s Two Worlds: Overcoming Phobia & Sexual Problems

Speakers: Deanna Holtzman, Nancy Kulish

Edith Wharton, the pre-eminent American writer, left a great deal of autobiographical material, letters, diaries, plus, of course, a vast collection of literary fiction and non-fiction. A fascinating theme runs through much of her work — that of living or being trapped between “two worlds.” This theme is critical to understanding Wharton’s psychology and the psychology of women in general. The authors will examine an unusual neurotic phobia suffered by Wharton as it is related to the theme of two worlds, and link these ideas more broadly to common sexual conflicts in women.

Scientific Paper 4: Running Head: The Translational Metaphor

Speakers: Lewis Allen Kirshner

The translational metaphor in psychoanalysis refers to the traditional method of restating or interpreting verbal and behavioral information in psychodynamic or developmental language that presumably explains presenting symptoms. The clinical phenomenology is translated by the analyst to convey its true meaning and origin. More recent concepts of symbolization and mentalization, which relate to the fundamental process of transforming unconscious contents into new forms of expression, introduce another avenue of therapeutic action. The paper presents an historical overview with clinical illustrations

Plenary Address: (Re)-Membering The Female Body in Psychoanalysis

Speakers: Rosemary Balsam

It would seem that psychoanalysts could never overlook patients’ bodies, given the major role that males, females and sexuality played in Freud’s theories. Yet the body has fallen from grace in our fi eld nowadays. To focus this topic, Dr. Rosemary Balsam will discuss the impact of procreativity and the major accomplishment of the female body, childbirth, as utterly common, but yet the least psychoanalytically attended source of both positive and negative experiences that can shift body image and even gender portraiture. Old theory mainly fl ed it. Newer theories, by focusing too exclusively on the mind while largely ignoring the body, risk a similar female erasure.

Educator’s Symposium: Creating Possibility: The “Forward Edge” Approach in Schools & Consulting Room

Speakers: Tillie Garfinkel, Mark D. Smaller, Daniel B. Frank

The application of psychoanalytic concepts in school settings provides teachers, students, and parents an additional resource for educating our children. It also offers psychoanalysts an opportunity to expand psychoanalytic theory and clinical technique as they pertain to adolescent development and treatment. Mark Smaller, Ph.D., Founding Director of Project Realize (formerly the Analytic Service to Adolescents Program), describes the psychoanalytic concept of “the forward edge” approach to working with troubled adolescents in schools. He then outlines implications for advancing adolescent developmental theory and treatment in various settings. Preliminary findings of Project Realize show that regardless of wide variation in socio-economic factors in different schools, adolescent issues regarding learning, relationships, sexuality, aggression, and ambitions do not vary.

Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience Symposium

Speakers: Charles P. Fisher, Mark Solms

Dr. Solms presents a compelling thesis that “turns the talking cure on its head” while preserving Freud’s fundamental discoveries. Freud saw the ego as the seat of consciousness and the id as deeply unconscious. However modern neuroscience suggests that consciousness is generated in primitive brain structures that mediate instinctual drives, while the higher structures that represent the external world are unconscious in themselves. Is the id conscious and the ego unconscious? This revision would resolve certain difficulties with Freud’s original formulations, while reinforcing the clinical utility of his basic concepts. The group discusses how this revised model clarifies clinical work.

Drs. Elizabeth Auchincloss and Eslee Samberg, co-editors-in-chief of “Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts,” a volume co-published by Yale University Press and the American Psychoanalytic Association, present the challenges encountered in editing a psychoanalytic dictionary in this age of theoretical pluralism and postmodern challenges to “authority.” The editors describe the strategies they employed in their management of “point of view” and give specific examples to illustrate the political issues they negotiated in defi ning terms and concepts. They also place their project in context by describing the political issues that have shaped the history of psychoanalytic lexicography from its beginnings.

PPRS Research Forum: Methodology for Outcome Studies of Psychoanalysis: The World View

Speakers: Steven Roose, Mark Hilsenroth, Andrew J. Gerber, Eve Caligor, Robert Michels

Given the limited number of psychoanalytic outcome studies, pooling data is essential. Meta-analysis has been used extensively to aggregate the results of individual studies. The quality of a meta-analysis depends partly on studies having comparable methodology, especially with respect to patient inclusion criteria, treatment standards and primary outcome measures. Researchers must collaborate on methodology so the impact of their research is more than the sum of the parts. The intent of this forum is to attract both researchers and clinicians to an interactive session in which they act as a protocol development committee giving feedback to the presenters.

Scientific Paper #6: Religious Imagery, Spiritual Practices & Personal Destiny in Psychoanalytic Therapy with Hindu Women

Speakers: Alan Roland, Salman Akhtar

While religious imagery entered into the Freudian opus over thirty years ago, the interface of spiritual practices and experiences with the psychoanalytic work on unconscious conflicts is a much more recent development. Personal destiny, however, with its accompaniments of reincarnation, planetary influences, astrology, and palmistry still remain an unwanted stepchild in psychoanalysis. Yet, they can be central to psychoanalytic therapy with highly educated, professional Hindu women. Two case studies are cited, one seen in three times a week, short-term psychoanalytic therapy in Bombay; the other in three times a week analysis in New York City over a few years.

Innovations: Psychoanalysis by Surprise

Speakers: Kimberly Leary, Mark Solms

After the end of apartheid, an exiled analyst returned to his native South Africa with the intention to transform social conditions on his family’s farm. The level of mutual comprehension and trust between himself and the black farm-workers turned out to be far worse than he anticipated. In desperation, he fell back on basic psychoanalytic principles, such as his understanding of transference and countertransference. The result was an unplanned community psychoanalysis. This “analysis” was conducted largely by historians and archaeologists (not the analyst), with “surprising results.

Meet-the-Author: Dr. Phillip M. Bromberg

Speakers: Melinda Gellman, Philip M. Bromberg, Christine C. Kieffer

Deepening his inquiry into the nature of what is therapeutic about the psychoanalytic relationship Dr. Bromberg explores the two interlocking rewards of successful treatment — healing and growth. By being an affectively alive partner who is simultaneously attentive to the dissociated impact of his own enacted participation, the analyst helps decrease the patient’s mistrust of potentially traumatizing “otherness” and its dissociated dread of attachment rupture. This in turn leads to both greater confidence in relational affect regulation and a growing ability to safely contain the self-state negotiation of otherness inherent to the experience of internal conflict. In its essence, Bromberg’s portrayal of therapeutic action restores self-state fluidity, liberating the patient’s capacity for trust without vigilance and permitting life to be lived with greater creativity, love and spontaneity.

Scientific Paper #7: Recovery from Childhood Psychiatric Treatment

Speakers: David Mintz, Adele Tutter

Increasingly, our patients have been medicated since childhood, with profound consequences for personal identity, becoming a source of deep-rooted feelings defect. Other problems arise when pills are used defensively to localize a family pathology in the child who receives the prescription. Furthermore, when medications are used to manage a child’s feelings, confusions may result about the signal function of emotions, truncating development. Cases of young adults, prescribed medications in childhood, are reviewed, with particular attention to developmental consequences. This session explores dynamic mechanisms of harm and examples of psychotherapeutic work that can help such patients seek healthier developmental paths.

Panel IV: Mourning, Identity, Creativity

Speakers: Adele Tutter, Otto F. Kernberg, Anna Ornstein, Leon Wurmser, Jeanine M. Vivona, Tehela Nimroody

Having come a long way from Freud’s circumscribed process of libidinal detachment, mourning is now considered a potentially life-long process that includes not only the grieving of loved ones, but also the grieving of developmental stages (e.g., childhood) and components of identity (e.g., ideals and illusions). At the same time, mourning is increasingly appreciated as a powerful inaugurator of personal growth and creative and vocational productivity. This panel brings together leading thinkers who have made important recent contributions to this topic. Through interactive dialogue with the discussant and the audience, they attempt a fresh synthesis of the complex, universal, and transformative processes of mourning. This panel was originally proposed by Adele Tutter, M.D., Ph.D.
