    Featuring Jane Kite, PhD

    Description:

    In this presentation, I will address the largely unrepresented state of ethics in psychoanalysis.  We tend to do an end run around the subject of ethics in our field and take for granted that we all agree on what constitutes ethical behavior without inquiring further.  I will argue that because psychoanalysis as a discipline is based on what is not known, we must first take into account the unknown in each analyst's inevitably personal (unconscious) participation, including his/her motivation to become an analyst in the first place.  I will mention the concept of (typically sexual) ethical "boundary violations", and our tendency to conflate psychoanalytic discourse with forensic discourse at these times, resulting in a kind of confusion of tongues within the field itself.  

    Objectives:

    1. Describe the inevitable ethical unknowns in analytic work.
    2. Discuss the role of personal history in becoming an analyst.
    3. Explain the relevance of Ferenczi's concept of confusion of tongues in the aftermath of major ethical breaches.
    Biography:

    Jane Kite trained as an analyst in San Francisco and is currently a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute and Society. Dr. Kite has been on the editorial boards of the IJP, JAPA, and the Psychoanalytic Quarterly, and is currently an associate editor of JAPA. Her abiding interests in psychoanalysis are centered in Character and Ethics, with special attention to the inevitable disjunction between theory and practice.

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


    Milos Forman's film adaptation of the popular, controversial Broadway musical Hair has dated somewhat, yet it remains an effective evocation of the hippie movement of the late '60s. The story centers on a reserved Midwesterner (John Savage) who joins a pack of hippies in Central Park on his way to joining the Army. Primarily, the film stands on the success of its musical numbers, which were choreographed by Twyla Tharp and sung by vocalists like Ellen Foley, Ronnie Dyson, Nell Carter and Melba Moore.

    Featuring Nancy McWilliams, Ph.D.

    Description:

    This workshop will consider ways in which narcissistic concerns may infuse personality. It will touch on both the more arrogant presentations of narcissistic personality disorder (e.g., as described in the DSM) and the extensive literature on converse versions of narcissistic preoccupation (“covert,” “depressed-depleted,” “hypervigilant,” or “closet” narcissism, as depicted in the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual). Dr. McWilliams will discuss the range of narcissism from healthy to seriously disturbed presentations (Kernberg’s “malignant narcissism”), putting emphasis on the dangers that malignant narcissism poses to personal relationships, family connections, workplace and institutional functioning, and political processes. Clinical implications of pathological narcissistic presentations will be explored. 

    The morning will be devoted to Dr. McWilliams' foundation for understanding narcissism.  The afternoon will feature relevant case presentations by Dana Charatan, Psy.D. and Kelly Crim, LPC which will be discussed by Dr. McWilliams.

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

    There are two men named Jeffrey Lebowski. One is a lazy, pot smoking, White Russian drinking, hippie who goes by "The Dude". The other is a self-made, multimillionaire war veteran who lives in a huge mansion with a full time assistant. Their paths cross when the millionaire's trophy wife owes money to a known pornographer. The thugs hired by this man confront The Dude because he has the same name. The Dude, wanting payback for his now destroyed rug, seeks out the millionaire Lebowski. What follows takes the Dude and his bowling buddies, Walter and Donnie, on a weird tale of intrigue, kidnapping, pornography, nihilists, White Russians, and more White Russians.
