Maintaining an analytic practice post-graduation can be challenging. This workshop will examine the reluctance of both analyst and patient to beginning an analysis. Using a Working Party process with the focus on clinical material from one case, we will try to understand the conscious and unconscious dynamics at work in the analyst/patient encounter. Some of the questions to be considered are: How do we see the analyst working with the dynamics in the field? When does the couch enter the analyst’s mind? What is the nature of the internal work of the analyst? This is not meant to be a supervision group or a critical examination of one analyst’s work, rather an open discussion of how people would think about these issues with a particular patient.
This is the third workshop in this series. The first and second workshops were well attended and the participants and the presenter found the discussion to be exciting, thought provoking and clinically relevant. The workshop is limited to 12 participants. We encourage you to sign up as soon as possible!
There is no charge for the program. 3 CME/CE Credits available for $30.00.
