Reconsidering the Erotic in the Analytic Encounter

Kimmel Center for University Life
60 Washington Square S
New York, NY 10012

Registration coming soon

Exploring the erotic can present tricky challenges and rich opportunities for the psychoanalytic couple. Historically, erotic feelings have often been considered as expressive of the patient’s infantile needs and conflicts and linked interpretively to the maternal transference and unresolved oedipal issues. In recent years, attempts have been made to theorize a place for adult sexuality within a two person model. Attention has turned to the analyst’ use of her subjectivity, the complexities of self-disclosure, the hazards of traumatic repetition and the possibilities of reparation and growth. Concurrent with these developments within our field, the advent of the “me too movement” has created a sea change in broader social attitudes towards gender, power and sex.

The NIP 2019 Conference will feature a distinguished panel of speakers including Andrea Celenza, Steven Cooper, Janine De Peyer, and Steven Kuchuk who will explore their theoretical and clinical views on the erotic. How have sociopolitical shifts impacted their perspectives as analysts? How do age, gender and power play into erotic explorations in the consulting room and in our institutes and supervisory relationships? How do we keep the therapeutic process mutual, asymmetric, and analytic when passion is in the air and our society is on heightened alert? These are some of the questions we will consider as we explore the erotic in contemporary psychoanalysis.

Scaffolding Trauma Treatment

Scaffolding Trauma Treatment: Collaboration between Psychoanalysis and EMDR

The National Institute for the Psychotherapies
250 West 57th Street, Suite 501
New York, NY 10107

Register Here

Psychotherapists often urge patients to express their experience in words.  For some, the requirement for verbal expression may limit accessing and/or processing important preverbal or traumatic material.  This can lead to impasse and even potentially failed treatment.   Sometimes what may be helpful is the addition of a modality that is practiced by another clinician. 

In this presentation we share our experience of a two-year collaboration that successfully moved treatment ahead.  The combination of psychoanalysis with adjunctive EMDR facilitated a new way to process previously dissociated feelings, leading to the lifting of an impasse.  In addition to discussing how the cases evolved, we will share our experiences of working in collaboration.
