    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.

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

    Description:

    Emotions run wild in the mind of a little girl who is uprooted from her peaceful life in the Midwest and forced to move to San Francisco in this Pixar adventure from director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc.).  Now, as Riley prepares to navigate a new city and attend a new school, her emotional headquarters becomes a hot bed of activity. As Joy (voice of Amy Poehler) attempts to keep Riley feeling happy and positive about the move, other emotions like Fear (voice of Bill Hader), Anger (voice of Lewis Black), Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) make the transition a bit more complicated.

    Infant Research and Adult Treatment
    Featuring Beatrice Beebe, Ph.D.


    Description:

    MORNING: THREE MODELS OF MOTHER-INFANT TRAUMA 

    The first model is a treatment case; the second and third are based in research studies in community samples. All three have illustrative video material. (1) Case of Linda and Dan: Mother suicidal at birth; (2) Origins of disorganized attachment at 4 months (3) Pregnant and widowed on 9/11.

    Current approaches to mother-infant treatment deal broadly with relational disturbance, but not specific patterns of interactive disturbance. Increased specificity in describing patterns of disturbance associated with different forms of mother-infant trauma can facilitate more focused clinical intervention, across a range of clinical settings. For each model of mother-infant trauma, the audience will be led through an embodied interactive role-play of the patterns of interaction.

    Following Dr. Beebe’s presentation there will be a discussion of the research aspects of the material with Dr. Beebe and Dr. Leslie Jordan.

    Morning Learning Objectives
    Participants will be able to:

    1. Describe ways in which mother-infant research can inform mother-infant treatment.
    2. Describe different pictures of mother-infant trauma.

    AFTERNOON: VIDEO FEEDBACK THERAPY FOR A TRAUMATIZED PATIENT WHO DOES NOT LOOK

    I explore processes of nonverbal communication in adult treatment through a new project, “Videotaping the Therapist’s Face.” By turning the lens on the therapist, we can learn more about how and what the therapist communicates to her patient. The therapist's face, as well as bodily gestures of head and hands, and the background vocal rhythm of the narrative, are relatively unexplored avenues of therapeutic action in adult treatment. To illustrate this process, I present a case in which I use the videotaped sessions of the analyst’s face for “video feedback” therapy with a patient who does not look at the faces of other people. Dr. Beebe is the video feedback consultant to an ongoing 20+ year intensive treatment by Dr. Larry Sandberg.

    A great deal of what the patient experiences as well as what the therapist experiences can be seen in the face, head and hand gestures of the therapist. During the feedback portion of the session, the therapist and patient together look at the video they just made and try to understand both what the therapist feels and what the patient might feel, and what the therapist might be reacting to in the patient. Watching the video gives the patient who cannot look a chance to see the therapist's face without having to be directly in the conversation. We will discuss how this process helped this patient, across 10 years of video feedback therapy.

    There will be discussion of adult treatment by Dr. Beebe and Dr. Nancy Bakalar following the presentation of material.

    Afternoon Learning Objectives
    Participants will be able to:

    1. Discuss the potential role of video for traumatized patients who cannot look directly into the face of another person.
    2. Discuss how video feedback therapy can facilitate an understanding of both verbal and nonverbal communication in an adult treatment.
    3. Describe the role of video feedback therapy as an adjunct to an ongoing treatment.

      A coming of age drama with a battle between identity and community, created by Oscar Winning Screenwriter Tarell Avlin McCraney


      Pharus doesn’t fit in at The Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys, an institution committed to building "strong, ethical black men". Despite embodying the strong, ethical morals the school seeks to ingrain in its students, being gay has made him an outsider within its hallowed halls. But this year, his talent and perseverance have paid off with a chance to lead the prestigious choir, a position where he may finally shake the dogged bullying by his fellow classmates.

      This soaring coming-of-age musical drama was the Broadway debut of Oscar-winning screenwriter Tarell Alvin McCraney, whose deeply human storytelling illuminates the chaotic collision of masculinity, tradition and self-discovery on the path to adulthood.  “It was important at the time of creating Choir Boy to really figure out how one distinguishes one’s own voice and one’s own instincts inside of a community,” says McCraney.

      Featuring gorgeous gospel music, you’ll want to raise your voice and cheer as one student boldly stands up to the traditions that seek to silence his voice.

      Please join us after the play for a discussion led by Brian Ngo-Smith, LCSW held on the third floor of the Robert and Judi Newman Center for Theater Education, which is located at 1101 13th Street, just a short walk from the theater.  (We do not have a reception this year and there is no fee for the discussion.)

      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.

      She is the author of the book The Rupture of Serenity: external intrusions and psychoanalytic technique . It was originally published by Karnac books and now under Routledge press. She has recently also co-edited a book with Dr. Salman Akhtar on the topic of privacy: developmental, Cultural and technical perspectives
