Paradox and Negotiation in Relational Technique: From Impasse to Emotional Growth

May 05, 2012 8:45 am -
May 05, 2012 4:30 pm

Event Description

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.

Barbara Pizer, EdD and Stuart A. Pizer, PhD, instructors

This program focuses on selective key contributions by authors associated with the relational tradition in psychoanalysis. The emphasis will be on a comparison of relational concepts with the perspectives of other psychoanalytic traditions, and a consideration of continuities and discontinuities in contemporary ideas about transference and countertransference, analyst disclosure, enactment, the unconscious, mental structures and defenses, resistance, impasse and clinical process. Clinical material offered in association to the presentation of the readings by the instructors and the participants will be important for our discussion of the influence of a relational perspective on analytic techniques and therapeutic action. We will emphasize the work of Paul Russell, Lewis Aron, Stephen Mitchell, Philip Bromberg and Donnel Stern, along with our own writings.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand key concepts of major contributors to relational psychoanalysis
  • To understand the roots of relational psychoanalysis in the history of psychoanalytic ideas and the impact of relational thinking on the evolution of psychoanalytic theory
  • To gain awareness of how a relational perspective may influence clinical technique
