3 Ethics CEs for Ethical Perspectives on ‘Fit’ and Fidelity in Clinical Practice


ICP+P presents its 4th Bruce Wine Memorial Conference 
featuring The Red Well Theater Group

Saturday, September 23, 2017
Registration: 8:30-9am
Program: 9am-12:30pm
Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza
One Veterans Place
Silver Spring, MD 20910

The play, Dinner with Friends, by Donald Margulies, is a cautionary tale about the vagaries of compatibility and commitment in long-term relationships—platonic, professional, romantic, and familial. The play will be presented as a parable about complex questions in clinical practice that have neither easy nor proscribed answers:

  • “What unconscious personal biases and values inform therapist ethical decision making?”
  • “Am I a ‘good enough’ therapist—for this patient, at this time?
  • “Are my co-therapist and I an effective therapeutic team?”
  • “Is being a psychotherapist (still) a vocational choice I want to commit to?”

This interactive program will give participants an opportunity to explore these and related questions, as they might be relevant to their clinical practice.

Conference Fees

  • Free for ICP+P Members
  • $90 for Non-members
  • $35 for Unaffiliated Students

Psychoanalytic Fellowship Program at the Contemporary Freudian Society

The 2017-8 Psychoanalytic Fellowship Program of the Contemporary Freudian Society-DC Psychoanalytic Training Institute begins this Fall.

Meetings will be held on 6 Saturdays between October and April from 10 am to noon. Tuition is $75.00 for the year.

Clinicians and students in psychology, social work, and psychiatry are invited to apply.

At the case conference-style meetings, CFS analysts present their sessions and discuss the decisions they made in the clinical hour.  Fellows will learn to listen at many levels. The clinical work is informed by the basic principles of Freud’s profound discoveries, as well as the post-Freudian theoretical perspectives of ego psychology, object relations, and attachment theory.

Each Fellow is offered a CFS mentor available to provide guidance in considering and developing a career in psychoanalysis.

For further information, please contact Kathryn Rickard, Psy.D. kathrynrickard@aol.com  202-413-3124 or visit the CFS-Psychoanalytic Training Institute website.

Psychoanalysis views unconscious fantasy as foundational in the understanding of psychic reality and traumatic suffering Psychotherapists and their patients work together to find the depths of mind that create pain and conflict. Our presentations will show how “finding unconscious fantasy” takes place in treatments when narrative, trauma, and body pain become known in the intimacies of transference and countertransference. By “finding” we mean the uncovering, discovering, and imagining of derivatives related to unconscious fantasies both symbolized and unsymbolized.   Our clinical focus on “finding unconscious fantasy” serves to integrate the concepts of trauma and fantasy, mending an historical split in the theories of mind.

PROGRAM:

Nancy Goodman and Paula Ellman begin the panel with summaries of their discoveries in their new book: Finding Unconscious Fantasy in Narrative, Trauma, and Body Pain: A Clinical Guide (publisher, Routledge 2017).  Emphasis is on making contact with the patient and understanding the way unconscious fantasies appear as scenes in the theater of the mind.  Case presentations and discussions by all panelists illustrate the ongoing work of therapy where patient and therapist discover evolving unconscious derivatives in the presence of trauma and body pain, along with narrative. Learning how therapeutic work progresses to uncover unconscious fantasy will benefit all psychoanalytic therapists who wish to know more about the psychoanalytic dialogue.

Paula Ellman: Contact and Therapeutic Action

Nancy Goodman: The “Finding Theater” A Schema for Finding Unconscious Fantasy

Irene Cairo: The Case of “Babette, Interrupted”

Harriet Basseches: Discussion of “Babette, Interrupted”
