    The Denver Psychoanalytic Society's Continuing Education and Diversity Committees are offering a book discussion group.

    Description: This discussion group will focus on the reading of Isabel Wilkerson's book, Caste: The Origins of our Discontents. The objective of this book group is to increase exposure and engagement with issues of diversity that impact all of us. To engage in an ongoing exploration of our own socially and internalized restrictions on our identity and self-expression. To aid us in helping clients find their own authenticity.

    Objectives: (after this discussion, participants should be able to):

      1. Describe the impact America’s modern caste system has on individuals and society as it relates to institutionalized racial oppression and mental health.
      2. Discuss unconscious bias to increase awareness and competency in relating to racially diverse clients.
      3. Apply the knowledge gained to improve clinical practice with diverse persons and promote racial justice.

She completed her medical training and psychiatric residency at the University of Colorado and currently works at the Veteran's Affairs hospital in addition to maintaining a private practice.

      LECTURE DETAILS

      Description: This presentation considers the relational psychoanalytic ideal—its implications for our therapeutic goals, our patients and for ourselves. Who do we as relational analysts aim to be in the consulting room?  How do we view our patient—her potential and her limitations? What are the clinical goals of a relational analysis?  And what might those goals occlude? Addressing the value and excesses of the relational ideal, participants will be invited to explore both sides—what relational thinking brings to the consulting room in tandem with the ways we may have gone too far.

      The presentation is appropriate for clinicians of all levels who are interested in contemporary psychoanalytic thinking.  A paper will be read, followed by audience discussion. 

      CME Objectives: 

      1. Describe how the relational emphasis on active intersubjective engagement may result in “relational excess.”
      2. Describe Slochower’s work on holding as it bridges the Relational and Winnicottian approaches.

      Biography:  Joyce Slochower, PhD is Professor Emerita of Psychology at Hunter College & the Graduate Center, CUNY. Joyce is faculty and supervisor at the NYU Postdoctoral Program, the Steven Mitchell Center, the National Training Program of NIP (all in New York), Philadelphia Center for Relational Studies in Philadelphia and the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California in San Francisco. In addition to over 100 articles on various aspects of psychoanalytic theory and technique, second Editions of her two books, Holding and Psychoanalysis: A Relational Perspective (1996) and Psychoanalytic Collisions (2006), were released in 2014 by Routledge. She is co-Editor, with Lew Aron and Sue Grand, of De-idealizing Relational Theory: A Critique from Within and Decentering Relational Theory: A Comparative Critique, Routledge (2018).
