IF YOU'RE GONNA CROSS THE RIVER WITH ME YOU'RE GONNA GET WET:
NEGOTIATING THE PARAMETERS OF THERAPEUTIC ACTION

Presenter: Ellen Shumsky, CSW
 APSP SERIES FOR MEMBERS ONLY 2000 - 2001
Wednesday, October 11, 2000
With broadening understandings of therapeutic action and optimal responsiveness, Kohut's empathic interpretation becomes just one of many effective analytic contributions. The case presented will deal with the challenge of a patient who presses for spontaneous emotional engagement and personal self disclosure from a therapist trained to see her role as providing sustained empathic attention. This candid presentation will capture the struggle that ensues.

KOHUT AS A CLINICIAN

Presenter: Charles B. Strozier, PhD
 
Saturday, December 2, 2000
In nearly two decades of research for his forthcoming biography of Heinz Kohut, Charles Strozier interviewed many of Kohut's former patients, who spoke frankly of the way he actually worked as a clinician. Kohut's evolving clinical style was in fact several paces ahead of his theoretical writings. Such testimony provides an unusual window into the evolution of Kohut as a clinician, how he changed along with his theory, and the implications for contemporary psychoanalysis.

PSYCHOANALYSIS AND ATTACHMENT THEORY

Presenter: Joseph D. Lichtenberg, MD
 
Saturday, March 24, 2001
Attachment theory began as a psychoanalytic theory and then went its separate way as a research study rather than a clinical therapy. Recently the two fields have come together, each enriching the other. Joseph D. Lichtenberg, the distinguished self psychologist, infant researcher and originator of the highly influential motivational systems theory, will discuss the areas of convergence and divergence between attachment theory and various psychoanalytic theories.

FROM VIRTUAL SPACE TO VIRTUAL REALITY:
THE FORMATION AND TRANSFORMATION OF EROTIC FANTASY

Presenter: Paulette Landesman, CSW
 
Wednesday, May 23, 2001
The compelling script of eroticized fantasy implores understanding of its divergent functions and motivations. This presentation will look at erotic fantasy from three theoretical perspectives on its origin and transformation: those of Kohut, Stolorow and Atwood, and Lichtenberg. Clinical material will be presented of a female patient whose intrusive erotic fantasies embody all three theoretical positions at given points of a two-year treatment.
