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

    “Paths of Glory” is Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 masterpiece on he random terror and insanity of war.  The film is based on an actual incident that occurred in the French Army during the First World War—an event so shocking and senseless as to be almost unbelieveable.  Kirk Douglas gives the most restrained and deeply moving performance of his long career, and the film itself has grown more profound  with every passing year and wihs every passing war.

    Healing Through the Displacement of the Play in Child Analysis with Rick Hall, Ph.D.

    The case of 8 year-old Peter will be presented to illustrate how an equivalent of parental loss through disability contributed to Peter’s depression, anxiety and narcissistic defenses. Illustrations will be given to show how vulnerability to narcissistic injury Peter was and how the resulting narcissistic defenses interfered with his education.

    Case material will be provided to show how Peter used the displacement of play with Lego blocks and Lego mini-figures to express how much of a bad guy he thought he was. His multiple transferences to his analyst were also expressed in the displacement of the Lego play. He thought he was the worst of bad guys. Before treatment, he seemed to be on the way to living down to that image of himself. 

    Through the displacement of play in intensive psychoanalytic treatment, Peter expressed wishes he could heal his father and worked through his wishes, fears and beliefs about himself to the point where his self-image shifted to one that is more reasonable. Peter was eventually able to state that he realizes he is not such a bad guy and that the whole world is not against him.

    Objectives:

    1.  Explain termination as a distinct phase and process
    2.  Apply Lacanian concepts to diagnose psychosis
    3.  Analyze several fMRI study designs in neuroscience and psychotherapy and identify major brain areas in depressed patients

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

    This is a real-life Western film, created by Chinese-American writer/director Chloe Zhao as part two of a planned trilogy centered on the Pine Ridge Lakota reservation of South Dakota.  Part one was the award-winning “Songs My Brothers Taught Me”.  This story is based on the true story of Brady Jandreau, a Lakota rodeo cowboy who suffers a serious head injury in a bronc-riding accident.  Brady, his father and his sister play themselves in the film.  Told that another ride could be fatal for him, he is faced with the loss of his identity, his masculinity, and indeed his cultural identity.  Chloe Zhao’s film compassionately and subtly portrays the human drive to persevere and to prevail , illustrating those struggles in the context of the contemporary Lakota culture.  Beautifully photographed by Joshua James Richard.

    “We do not talk of such things”. An Analyst Travels Through Japan to Consult on the Inter-generational Transmission of Trauma and Learns to Use Her Countertransference to Facilitate Helping a Population with Hidden Traumas with Mary Ann Levy, M.D.


    Mary Ann Chucy Levy, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is now retired from her clinical practice of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy of child, adolescent, and adult patients, but remains active in professional and educational activities. She is a training and supervising analyst with the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and was the first woman to graduate from their program. She has enjoyed her many years as a teacher and supervisor of psychoanalytic candidates as well as psychiatric residents and other clinical specialists. As a past president of the Denver Psychoanalytic Society, she helped facilitate its response to the Columbine shooting disaster where the society members became involved in many aspects of out-reach and clinical support for survivors of that terrible community disaster. She has always been surprised by how much early childhood traumas have contributed to her work with patients and how little acknowledgement of this has been stressed in psychoanalytic training until recently. Scholarly interests have included femininity in psychoanalytic work, and countertransference as well as the treatment and long term effects of traumatic stress. Dr. Levy was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada and received her MD in 1964 from the University of Manitoba.  She subsequently completed her psychiatric residencies in Adult and Child Psychiatry at the University of Cincinnati, followed by her Psychoanalytic training at the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis.

    The Impact of the Analyst's Real Life and Other External Factors on the Psychoanalytic Process with Aisha Abassi, M.D.

    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.

    Bio:  Dr Aisha Abbasi is a training and supervising analyst at the Michigan psychoanalytic Institute and it’s immediate past president. She is  the pro bono executive director of the Mel Bornstein Clinic for psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, which is a supporting organization of the Michigan psychoanalytic Institute. Dr. Abbasi is an associate editor of the journal of the American psychoanalytic association. She’s also on the editorial board of the psychoanalytic quarterly and on its Board of Directors.

    She is the author of the book The Rupture of Serenity: external intrusions and psychoanalytic technique . It was originally published by Karnac books and now under Routledge press. She has recently also co-edited a book with Dr. Salman Akhtar on the topic of privacy: developmental, Cultural and technical perspectives

    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.
