"The Ambulant Cemetery: Secret Projects of Repair" with Adrienne Harris, PhD

This lecture will address the presence and function of damaged internal objects, ghosts of various forms and kinds, that find their way into analytic work. Drawing from the work of Henri Rey and the work on intergenerational transmission of trauma (Faimberg, Apprey, Grand and Salberg and others) I will discuss the often secret and also often unconscious project in analysis where the patient arrives not to change themselves but to repair someone else. Extended clinical examples are also presented.

Our Difficulties With Otherness: Cultivating Curiosity in Psychoanalytic Treatment and Organizations - Anton Hart, PhD, FABP

Too often, psychoanalysis misses the opportunity to attend to the task of penetrating the surface of otherness. This presentation will examine both the resistances to, and the necessity for, psychoanalytic engagement—and prioritization—of issues of otherness, difference and diversity. Anxieties associated with authentic, curious, exploratory dialogue about difference and diversity are identified.

Confessions of a Recovering Ego Psychologist - Jonathan Kolb, MD

During the course of the last 40 years, mainstream North American psychoanalysis, and particularly BPSI, have gone from being a place of one dominant theory, to being a place of multiple theories.  It seems the task of anyone learning analysis, at whatever stage, to choose a theory, to be able to self-identify with a theoretical tradition, and to relate that theory to one’s practice.

"Ethics & Money" with Ernest Wallwork, PhD

How do we integrate ethical reflection with the interpretations and decisions we make about money in our clinical work?  The aim of this workshop is to expand the scope of our ways of thinking ethically about challenging moral dilemmas involving financial transactions encountered in both therapy and psychoanalysis. Clinical cases will be used to identify unacknowledged moral aspects of specific transference and counter-transference interactions and the desirability - technically and ethically - of alternative interventions.

Bion’s Theory of Transformations and its Clinical Application - Lawrence Brown, PhD
