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

    Description: Enigmatic gunslinger Shane (Alan Ladd) rides into a small Wyoming town with hopes of quietly settling down as a farmhand. Taking a job on homesteader Joe Starrett's farm, Shane is drawn into a battle between the townsfolk and ruthless cattle baron Rufus Ryker. Shane's growing attraction to Starrett's wife, Marian (Jean Arthur), and his fondness for their son Joey, who idolizes Shane, force Shane to realize that he must thwart Ryker's plan. --Summary found on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Discussant:  Eric Braden is a retired psychologist who practiced for 44 years in the Denver area. He now devotes his energies to photography, trying to learn to play the saxophone and to speaking Spanish (hope springs eternal), skiing, biking, and keeping track of his and his wife Harriet's three grandchildren via Zoom.

    The purpose of the salon is to gather in an informal setting to share basic and applied psychoanalytic principles that help you explore your interest in psychoanalysis and/or psychodynamic psychotherapy.

    Description: Therapist self-disclosure has been a hotly debated topic since Freud’s recommendations for analytic neutrality, abstinence and anonymity. As societal and professional norms change, including our current internet culture where privacy issues abound, how does a modern clinician adapt while maintaining a psychodynamic stance? What might clinical decision making look like when learning your client has “googled” you, obtaining information about your personal life? How do we navigate our own visible and invisible identities as they impact the clinical space? How and when might a clinician disclose an invisible identity? We will explore clinical examples and theoretical perspectives about working psychodynamically with these complicated topics.

    Biography: Dr. Nikki Kraslin is a licensed clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst with private practices in both Boulder and Denver. She received her PsyD from DU’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology and has served as an adjunct professor at GSPP, teaching seminars in psychodynamic psychotherapy and multiculturalism. Dr. Kraslin is faculty at the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis; she teaches topics including: Object Relations, Relational Technique and Relational Theory. She is the owner of a group psychotherapy practice (Denver DBT and Psychotherapy) where she enjoys supervising and mentoring postdocs and early to mid-career psychologists.

    This program is for: a) Prospective analytic candidates and psychodynamic psychotherapy students   b) Mental health professionals who have a curiosity about or special interest in psychoanalysis or psychodynamic psychotherapy.

    Cost: This event is free. Donations may be made on our website to help keep our programs affordable. No CME credit available.

    Registration: Registration is required and limited to 20 participants. Once we have 20 registrants, a waitlist will be available for those who are interested in attending. Those on the waitlist will be notified by email if any spots become available. The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants 24 hours before the event. Registration closes February 7, 2021. 

    Cancellation: If, after registering, you can no longer attend, please notify the DPS office at office@denverpsychoanalytic so we can allow those on the wait-list to join.

    Description: In this presentation, we will explore, from a psychoanalytic point of view, the phenomenon of feeling aggrieved. A sense of grievance and efforts to redress feeling aggrieved can evoke inchoate aggressive responses both from individuals and from groups. But there are occasions where the felt sense of grievance can lead individuals and groups to progressive, assertive, and adaptive behavior. Grievance will be looked at from a granular level towards understanding its power as a behavioral activator. The relationship of envy, “fairness”, self-esteem, self-regard, and omnipotence to an individual’s inclination towards the experience of grievance and their mode of “metabolizing” grievance will be discussed.

    Objectives: 

    1. Describe the powerful role of grievance as a factor in spawning both anti-social expression of aggression as well as pro-social expressions of assertive behavior.

    2. Analyze the role of narcissistic vulnerability in spawning aggression.

In addition, he is an Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center where he teaches psychiatric residents the principles of psychodynamic thought.
