Teleconference Study Groups
CREATIVE REPETITION AND INTERSUBJECTIVITY:
CONTEMPORARY FREUDIAN EXPLORATIONS OF TRAUMA, MEMORY, AND CLINICAL PROCESS
DATE & TIME: The course will take place on Sunday, December 15th and 29th from 12:00 to 1:30 pm (EST).
Bruce Reis, PhD,FIPA, explores varied conceptions of the intersubjective – engaging with the analytic literature from several continents to present a contemporary Freudian way of working with the unconscious that is modern and clinically relevant to today’s patients. Discussion of his new book will take up the themes of the unconscious intersubjective relation between analysand and analyst; work with primitive mental states; the value of a position of witnessing in the psychoanalytic treatment of trauma; considerations of the role of both silence and of language in the session; and transformations that allow for something new to occur within analytic space. All these considerations will be illustrated with clinical material.

ENACTMENT & OTHER ISSUES
Nancy R. Goodman, Ph.D.
Contemporary Freudian Society
Enactments are compelling due to their intimate relationship to unconscious fantasy and the ‘here and now’ of transference and countertransference. This leads us to the living out with patients of unconscious fantasies and object relations configurations. For a long time psychoanalysis considered enactments something to be avoided. This group looks to discover more about the action and interaction sequences that accompany verbal dialogue between analyst and analysands, as well as other issues involved in psychoanalytic treatment.
