ABOUT THE DAY:
Saturday Morning Presentation: The Subjective Experience of Time: Unresponsive Objects and the Vacuity of the Future
Dr. Seligman discusses how a personal sense of time is organized and experienced. Synthesizing phenomenological philosophy, clinical psychoanalysis, and developmental theory and research, he will describe the ways that temporality can be seen as a fundamental giver and organizer of sense, of being and of meaning. He will focus on clinical implications for working with patients who present without a sense of a forward-moving future. His presentation will illustrate the effects of unresponsive parenting, and be punctuated by a clinical case discussion.
Saturday Afternoon Presentation: Mentalization, Metaphor, Acknowledgement, Grief: Interaction and Transformation in Psychoanalytic Process
A clinical presentation applies early development studies to psychotherapies with patients with traumatic histories and characterological problems. Emerging concepts such as mentalization and attachment will be considered along with transference-countertransference, projection and the complex uses and pitfalls of dyadic interactions, including “enactments.”
Earlybird Deadline is September 11, 2015.
