    Working Effectively with Enactments
    Taught by Margy Stewart, Psy.D. 

    Description:
    The aim of this course is to help practitioners realize intersubjective influences which occur in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis and tolerate recognition of their own influences which contribute to enactments, stalemates and even ethical violations with patients. The 4 meetings of this course will consist of a small group of participants meeting for 2 hours. There will be one to two readings per session, which will be reviewed by Dr. Stewart and include active discussion with students.  Afterwards, clinical case material regarding enactments will be discussed in order to apply reading and discussion material. Students will be expected to bring case material.  We will follow guidelines for confidentiality.

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

    1. Discuss participant’s contributions to enactments when they occur with patients. 

    2. Demonstrate knowledge of appropriate therapeutic interventions to improve therapeutic performance with patients with whom practitioners have been in enactments.

    Format and Readings: This course, held on 4 Friday afternoons, will be composed of supplied readings and discussions about working with enactments in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. We will have at least one reading each week, which Dr. Stewart will review. Afterwards, we will have discussions about clinical work regarding enactments. Students will be expected to bring case material to present in order to apply ideas we have read. 

    Dates & Times: Classes will meet from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM for 4 Fridays on:  October 16, 23, 30 and November 6, 2020 using Zoom (Remote access information will be emailed to registrants prior to the start of class).
