THREE VIEWS OF INTERSUBJECTIVITY

Presenter: Dorienne Sorter, PhD Wednesday, November 1, 2000
8:15 pm
 
Jessica Benjamin, Thomas Ogden and Robert Stolorow have each developed theories they call intersubjectivity. Dori Sorter will discuss differences and similarities in their guiding assumptions, use of metaphor, the intrapsychic model involved, and how each theorist conceives of interaction in the dyad. Clinical material will be utilized as examples. This illuminating analysis grows out of the intensive work of a seven-year study group, whose other participants were Steven Knoblauch, Judith Rustin, and Beatrice Beebe.

"IF I ONLY HAD A HEART":
OPTIMAL RESPONSIVENESS IN THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS

Presenter: Lester Lenoff, MSW Wednesday, February 14, 2001
8:15 pm
 
This poignant paper describes a turning point in the therapy of a patient who feared that the Great Guy persona he yearned for, like the Tin Man's heart, would always elude him. The paper makes use of Howard Bacal's framework of optimal responsiveness as a basis for a flexible, yet distinctively self psychological, clinical approach. Other recent innovations in self psychological clinical theory called on are Marty Livingston's concept of "vulnerable moments," Marian Tolpin's focus on the "forward edge", and Anna Ornstein's definition of "structure" as psychological capacity.
 

CLOSE READINGS OF TEXTS:
ATTACHMENT THEORY AND RESEARCH

Presenter: Shelley Doctors, PhD Wednesday, April 18, 2001
8:15 pm
 
This year we will examine "Attachment Theory and Research: Implications for the Theory and Practice in Individual Psychotherapy with Adults." The author is Arietta Slade, PhD, an accomplished clinician, teacher and researcher, who, in the opinion of Shelley Doctors, has written the best account yet of how the dimension of "attachment status" affects both patient and therapist in the psychotherapeutic situation. This discussion should complement the March 24 presentation by Joseph Lichtenberg on "Psychoanalysis and Attachment Theory."
