Master Series in Clinical Practice
Jointly sponsored by The Continuing Education Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Major Teaching Hospital of Harvard Medical School; Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology.
The Master Series affords the chance to spend a complete day with leaders in our field to consider the unique perspective each speaker brings to the challenging dilemmas in both theory and practice. We hope that you will consider joining us for the entire series at a reduced tuition or choose the programs most relevant to your own practice.
Martha Stark, MD, instructor
Dr. Martha Stark has developed a comprehensive theory of therapeutic action that integrates the interpretive perspective of classical psychoanalysis (enhancement of knowledge “within”); the deficiency-compensation perspective of self psychology and other deficit theories (provision of corrective experience “for”); and the contemporary relational perspective (engagement in authentic relationship “with”). Her focus throughout the day will be on the interface between theory and practice; and she will demonstrate, by way of numerous clinical vignettes, the ways in which the three modes of therapeutic action (knowledge, experience, and relationship) can be used to accelerate the transformation of defense into adaptation, need into capacity.
Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:
- examine the therapist’s “use of self” to inform both understanding and intervention
- work interpretively, empathically, and authenti cally
- understand the way in which resistance becomes transformed into awareness, refusal to grief into acceptance, and re-enactment into accountability
