CLOSE READINGS OF TEXTS: THE WORK OF JUDY GUSS TEICHOLZ

Presenters: Alan Dolber, PhD, and Valerie Oltarsh, CSW

Dates: Two Wednesday Evenings: November 6 and November 20, 2002

Time: 8:15 pm

Held before and after the Teicholz presentation on November 16, these two workshops will address the differences between self psychology and relational (postmodern) theory as delineated in her book Kohut, Loewald and the Postmoderns.  How does self psychology fit into the relational world of psychoanalysis? These workshops will discuss Teicholzís thoughtful analysis of the self, the developmental point of view, empathy, authenticity, self disclosure and the varied view of intersubjectivity.


WORKING WITH COUPLES: REFLECTIONS ON THEORY AND TECHNIQUE

Presenter: Harriet Pappenheim, CSW, BCD

Friday, December 13, 2002

Time: 7:30 pm

Harriet Pappenheim will illustrate the use of certain self psychological concepts that she finds most helpful while at the same time exploring the application of other theoretical perspectives. She advocates a mixed model approach, and employing clinical case examples, she reflects on the usefulness of attachment theory and object relations theory. Authenticity, spontaneity and an awareness of the intersubjective nature of the work between therapist and couple are stressed.


REFLECTIONS ON SUICIDAL CHILDREN

Presenter: Ronald A. Zirin, PhD

Date: Wednesday, February 26, 2003

Time: 8:15 pm

This presentation discusses the development of childrenís conception of death and of their own mortality. Case material is presented to explore the way in which child and therapist work through suicidal tendencies in self psychologically oriented psychotherapy. Two cases involve children of five and six years brought for therapy because they wanted or tried to kill themselves. Parallel material is presented from an adult during whose therapy a childhood suicide attempt was uncovered.


STICKING UP FOR OURSELVES WITHOUT STICKING IT TO OUR PATIENTS:

Wednesday, March 19, 2003 at 8:15 pm

The compelling case presented by Jody Davies at the Stephen A. Mitchell International Relational Conference (New York, January 2002) will be used as a springboard for comparing self psychological and other relational approaches as ways of transforming the toxicity of power struggles in the analytic relationship.
