    Description:

    This class will focus on the reading James Baldwin's landmark book The Fire Next Time. Discussion of Baldwin's ideas and discussion of our reaction and ideas about race and racism will be divided over 3 sessions. We hope participants will engage in looking inward at reactions to race and racism to develop increased comfort with addressing experience of race in clinical work with patients and to look at the therapist's or analyst's transference and countertransference reactions regarding race and racism. We will discuss trauma and race.

    The purpose of the film series is to encourage psychoanalytic dialogue with respect to creativity and movies. 

    Description:

    "Paths of Glory" is Stanley Kubrick's 1957 masterpiece on the random terror and insanity of war.  The film is based on an actual incident that occurred in the French Army during the First World War—an event so shocking and senseless as to be almost unbelieveable.  Kirk Douglas gives the most restrained and deeply moving performance of his long career, and the film itself has grown more profound  with every passing year and with every passing war.

    —  Summary written by Dick Simons, M.D.

    Objectives:

    1. Explain the psychological impact of war and deepen awareness that need for treatment may emerge years after the trauma.
    2. Apply empathy and understanding when working with soldiers and veterans.
    3. Explain how treating soldiers and veterans may be different than treating other patients as it relates to war, specifically PTSD, cowardly conduct, shell shock trauma and economic and family problems.

    Description:

    The case of 8 year-old Peter will be presented to illustrate how an equivalent of parental loss through disability contributed to Peter’s depression, anxiety and narcissistic defenses. Illustrations will be given to show how vulnerable to narcissistic injury Peter was and how the resulting narcissistic defenses interfered with his education.

    Case material will be provided to show how Peter used the displacement of play with Lego blocks and Lego mini-figures to express how much of a bad guy he thought he was. His multiple transferences to his analyst were also expressed in the displacement of the Lego play. He thought he was the worst of bad guys. Before treatment, he seemed to be on the way to living down to that image of himself. 

    Through the displacement of play in intensive psychoanalytic treatment, Peter expressed wishes he could heal his father and worked through his wishes, fears and beliefs about himself to the point where his self-image shifted to one that is more reasonable. Peter was eventually able to state that he realizes he is not such a bad guy and that the whole world is not against him.

    Objectives:

    1.  Explain termination as a distinct phase and process
    2.  Apply Lacanian concepts to diagnose psychosis
    3.  Analyze several fMRI study designs in neuroscience and psychotherapy and identify major brain areas in depressed patients

    Biography:

    Dr. Roderick Hall is a child and adolescent psychoanalyst in Coronado, California.  Dr. Hall is the Chair of the Training Program in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis at the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center.  He is a member of the American Psychoanalytic Association.

      The purpose of the film series is to encourage psychoanalytic dialogue with respect to creativity and movies. 

      Description:

      This is a real-life Western film, created by Chinese-American writer/director Chloe Zhao as part two of a planned trilogy centered on the Pine Ridge Lakota reservation of South Dakota.  Part one was the award-winning “Songs My Brothers Taught Me”.  This story is based on the true story of Brady Jandreau, a Lakota rodeo cowboy who suffers a serious head injury in a bronc-riding accident.  Brady, his father and his sister play themselves in the film.  Told that another ride could be fatal for him, he is faced with the loss of his identity, his masculinity, and indeed his cultural identity.  Chloe Zhao’s film compassionately and subtly portrays the human drive to persevere and to prevail , illustrating those struggles in the context of the contemporary Lakota culture.  Beautifully photographed by Joshua James Richard.

      Description:

      During a recent trip to Japan, Dr. Levy was surprised by the extent of difficulty for clinicians to deal with past, extensive traumas when there were so many recent ones, such as the Fukushima nuclear disaster, demanding attention. Using Selma Fraiberg’s seminal paper "Ghosts in the Nursery" as a way of organizing our thinking, Dr. Levy will share two examples of individuals, a 50 year old and a 7 year old, who exemplify how this transmission can be experienced even with language barriers and a culture which has a strong dynamic of shame over the expression of weakness. Psychoanalytic understanding of her own empathy and countertransference facilitated her openness and ability to help a population with hidden traumas.

      Objectives:

      1. Participants will expand their understanding of enactments and learn how to address situations outside of the clinical setting
      2. Utilize their knowledge of the intergenerational transmission of trauma to help others.

      Biography:

      Mary Ann Chudy Levy, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is now retired from her clinical practice of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy of child, adolescent, and adult patients, but remains active in professional and educational activities. She is a training and supervising analyst with the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and was the first woman to graduate from their program. She has enjoyed her many years as a teacher and supervisor of psychoanalytic candidates as well as psychiatric residents and other clinical specialists. As a past president of the Denver Psychoanalytic Society, she helped facilitate its response to the Columbine shooting disaster where the society members became involved in many aspects of out-reach and clinical support for survivors of that terrible community disaster. She has always been surprised by how much early childhood traumas have contributed to her work with patients and how little acknowledgement of this has been stressed in psychoanalytic training until recently. Scholarly interests have included femininity in psychoanalytic work, and countertransference as well as the treatment and long term effects of traumatic stress. Dr. Levy was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada and received her MD in 1964 from the University of Manitoba.  She subsequently completed her psychiatric residencies in Adult and Child Psychiatry at the University of Cincinnati, followed by her Psychoanalytic training at the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis.

      Description: Dr. Riker will show why the energy that vitalizes unconscious self structure needs to be thought of as eros and how the self speaks through what he terms "erotic eruptions."  Dr. Riker will describe psychological dynamics in which there are strong tensions between the ego, the body, ingested social codes, and the self, and describe how one can tell what is pressuring one, so that they might determine the importance of those motivations.  Along the way, Dr. Riker will weave together Plato, Freud, and Kohut into a novel picture of the human soul.  

      Objectives:

      1. The participants will be able to understand what the singular self in each human being is and how it manifests itself.
      2. The participants will be able to understand the nature of eros and the erotic in such a way that it is not reduced to the sexual, as it tends to be in contemporary culture.
      3. The participants will be able to identify which sector of the psyche is pressuring them, so as to better evaluate the importance of their motivations.
      Biography:  For the past three decades, John Riker has been devoted to exploring the relation of psychoanalysis, especially Kohutian self psychology, to problems in ethics and philosophical anthropology.  He has written four books intersecting psychoanalysis and ethics (most recently, Exploring the Life of the Soul), and published numerous articles and spoken in many conferences on this material, including conferences in England, Belgium, Turkey, Austria, and Israel.  John has been a professor of philosophy at Colorado College for over half a century and been named Professor of the Year a record four times, and advisor of the year three times.  He was the initial recipient of the award Colorado College established to recognize someone who most promotes diversity and inclusion on campus.

      Description:  In this presentation, Dr. Abbasi will emphasize the importance of the analyst being able to discuss how external events either in her life or in the environment surrounding the analytic dyad, impact the analytic process. She will use detailed clinical material to illustrate these ideas, which are often given short shrift in analytic work.

      Objectives: 

      1. Identify how external factors affect the analytic work in subtle and not so subtle ways.
      2. Employ the knowledge gained to listen to their patients in increasingly sophisticated ways.
      3. Modify the way they work when issues of external reality come up in analytic material.
      Biography:  Dr Aisha Abbasi is a training and supervising analyst at the Michigan psychoanalytic Institute and it’s immediate past president. She is  the pro bono executive director of the Mel Bornstein Clinic for psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, which is a supporting organization of the Michigan psychoanalytic Institute. Dr. Abbasi is an associate editor of the journal of the American psychoanalytic association. She’s also on the editorial board of the psychoanalytic quarterly and on its Board of Directors.

      Save the Date:
      8th Triennial Symposium on Psychoanalysis and the Arts
      Co-sponsored by APsaA and the IPA
      Florence, Italy, May 21_23, 2020.

      Theme of Symposium:
      Partners in Creation 
      “In the arts and psychoanalysis, partners in creation experience 

      the perils of rivalry and fusion 

      as well as  

      the pleasures of intimacy and mutual discovery.”
       

      As we have done for the last quarter century, the American Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytical Association once again invite you to a Symposium that aims to explore and to celebrate the vitalizing kinship of psychoanalysis and the arts.
       
      Well-received presenters from the 2017 Symposium will return, such as brilliant musician, David Rosenmeyer, creative psychoanalyst, Michael Parsons, and art historians, David Freedberg and Diane O’Donoghue. We will also welcome speakers who are new to this event, notably psychoanalyst and neuroscientist, Mark Solms.
       
      Our venue will be the Convitto Della Calza, a 16th century architectural masterpiece. Social events will offer Tuscan food and drink, while we share ideas informally and forge new partnerships.
       
      Special head-set aided tours will include the highlights of Florence, a city that is, itself, a living museum, the grandest realization of the Renaissance, updated but intact, within a setting of inspiring beauty.
