Understanding Dominique Scarfone, MD's Contributions to Psychoanalysis - Part 1
Presenter: Michael Levin, PsyD

  
Mike Levin will discuss Scarfone's 20‍13 paper, “A brief introduction to the work of Jean Laplanche" (IJP 94: 545-566). In this article Scarfone provides an outstanding overview of Laplanche’s thought, which is the major inspiration for his own work.  If time permits, Mike will also discuss the ways that Scarfone compares and contrasts Laplanche’s paradigm with the work of Winnicott, Bion, and others, and the ways that Scarfone extends and builds upon Laplanche’s thought regarding countertransference and the treatment of severe pathology.

Understanding Dominique Scarfone, MD's Contributions to Psychoanalysis - Part 3
Presenter: Eric Glassgold, MD

  
Eric Glassgold will discuss the interconnectedness of Winnicott and Freud in Scarfone’s writings. To quote Scarfone: "I should say straight off that I don’t see what is to be gained by determining whether or not Winnicott was really committed to Freudian drive theory. What is clear, in any case, is that the concept of the drive is at work in his thought. The real question is to find out whether the place he assigns this concept in the framework of practice will facilitate rather than undermine the way we do analysis (la conduite de lanalyse). As for me, I have no hesitation revealing not only that Winnicott helps me to work analytically, but that he helps me to ‘survive' as an analyst."
