In this workshop we will look at empathy through the lens of self psychology and describe its use in treatment.  Theoretical differences between empathy and such concepts as attunement, intuition and optimal responsiveness will be explored.  We will also discuss what intersubjectivity adds to the concept and finally what an Intersubjective Self Psychology view of empathy entails.  There will be multiple examples given, both from everyday life and from the treatment room, as well as an extended case example.  Questions and comments will be welcomed throughout.

The selfobject transference – the patient’s healthy use of the analyst to facilitate self-development and to put derailed development back on track – is the cornerstone of Heinz Kohut’s powerful contributions to psychoanalysis.  As Intersubjective Self Psychologists, we view selfobject experience through the lens of intersubjectivity, a conceptualization of the therapeutic situation as a dynamic, reciprocal, two-person field, made up of the intersecting hopes and dreads of both patient and analyst. In this workshop we will illuminate these foundational concepts and use case material to illustrate the ideas and enrich the discussion to follow.

In this workshop we will demonstrate what is curative from the perspective of Intersubjective Self Psychology. Kohut and self psychology have drawn our attention to the importance of the bond between therapist and patient for the well being of the patient. However, when defining what is curative, Kohut focused on the interpretative work when this bond is disrupted. While this captures an important dimension of therapeutic work, it does not address what curative action, if any, takes place when the bond with the therapist is intact.  In this workshop Peter Zimmermann will elaborate on the curative process in both scenarios. Laura D’Angelo will present a case that will showcase the ideas and serve as a basis for our discussion.

In this live case discussion a collegial dialogue will take place between Gordon Powell presenting a case from the perspective of Intersubjective Self Psychology (ISP) and Harry Paul, seasoned ISP supervisor.   Their dialogue will be in the service of illuminating the intersubjective field as it is constituted by the intersection of the subjective experiences of patient and therapist. Workshop attendees will witness firsthand how the dialogue between supervisor and therapist supports and strengthens the therapist and solidifies how the therapist organizes his thinking as an Intersubjective Self Psychologist.

At last year’s workshop on working with the leading edge we introduced the importance of working with the leading edge and presented  some initial clinical guidelines. Over subsequent months, we have continued this dialogue and have elaborated on these guidelines.   In this year’s workshop we will share with you both an introduction to Leading Edge Theory, as well as our new ideas regarding how to successfully engage the leading edge yearnings of the patient which deepen the therapeutic relationship and  thereby improve treatment outcomes.  We will also demonstrate the ideas with a detailed and dramatic clinical example.

As analysts we talk to our patients about those painful early relationships that they feel powerless to change. Sometimes, however, patients discover the potential to make real change in those relationships. In this workshop Harry Paul will discuss the treatment of three patients who had, to different degrees, withdrawn from their families of origin and at the same time actively engaged in building their own vital sense of self.  He will discuss various aspects of all three treatments, in particular the role of the leading edge in the transference that enabled each of the patients to find their own separate voice.  Gordon Powell will provide a discussion and a group discussion will follow.

Guest Presenter Avgi Saketopoulou will present extensive clinical material from the treatment of an effeminate boy and his family. Through this work, she will illustrate how a child’s atypical gender is uniquely suited to become a magnet for unconscious familial conflict and deeply held parental ambivalences. Under the auspices of such complex dynamics, investments in a child’s normative gender adaptation carry reparative fantasies that belong to the parents but which are, nevertheless, tasked to the child.  Gordon Powell’s discussion will add the perspective from Intersubjective Self Psychology and we will welcome participation in the group discussion to follow.

 

Dr. Avgi Saketopoulou is on the faculty of the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, the William Allanson White Institute, the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) and the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis. She serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Psychoanalytic Dialogues and Studies in Gender and Sexuality. She has received several awards including, the Ruth Stein prize, the Roughton award from the American Psychoanalytic Association, the Symonds prize and the annual prize of the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Dr. Saketopoulou has published work on trauma and its representation, on traumatic and normative gender, on psychosexuality and perversion and on the enigmatics of consent.
