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.
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:
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.

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.

Save the Date: 8th Triennial Symposium on Psychoanalysis and the Arts Co-sponsored by APsaA and the IPA
Florence, Italy, May 21_23, 2020.
Theme of Symposium: Partners in Creation “In the arts and psychoanalysis, partners in creation experience
the perils of rivalry and fusion
as well as
the pleasures of intimacy and mutual discovery.”
As we have done for the last quarter century, the American Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytical Association once again invite you to a Symposium that aims to explore and to celebrate the vitalizing kinship of psychoanalysis and the arts.
Well-received presenters from the 2017 Symposium will return, such as brilliant musician, David Rosenmeyer, creative psychoanalyst, Michael Parsons, and art historians, David Freedberg and Diane O’Donoghue. We will also welcome speakers who are new to this event, notably psychoanalyst and neuroscientist, Mark Solms.
Our venue will be the Convitto Della Calza, a 16th century architectural masterpiece. Social events will offer Tuscan food and drink, while we share ideas informally and forge new partnerships.
Special head-set aided tours will include the highlights of Florence, a city that is, itself, a living museum, the grandest realization of the Renaissance, updated but intact, within a setting of inspiring beauty.
