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.
