Maintaining an analytic practice post-graduation can be challenging. This is the second workshop to 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.

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to
  • clarify the conscious and unconscious dynamics at work in the patient/analyst encounter that contribute to the analyst’s reluctance to recommend psychoanalysis.
  • describe how the analyst is working with the dynamics in the patient/analyst field.
  • describe the nature of the internal work of the analyst.
  • identify what unconscious factors contribute to their own reluctance to recommend psychoanalysis when that is the optimal treatment for a patient.
