About the Presenter
 
Sarah Masoodsinaki, MD was born and raised in Iran where she finished her medical school. She then came to the USA where she pursued training in psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry and integrative medicine. She, however, felt a deep desire to become a psychoanalyst. Therefore, she pursued adult and child psychoanalytic training in addition to infant psychoanalysis. Sarah wishes to expand her knowledge of psychoanalysis further and find the areas of overlap between psychoanalysis, religion and literature.

She has served on the editorial boards of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis, The Psychoanalytic Quarterly, and is currently an Associate Editor of The Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Dr. Erreich has published in both psychoanalytic and developmental psychology journals, often with the goal of integrating academic research on models of mind and development with the unique data of psychoanalysis.
Douglas Van der Heide, MD, is a board-certified psychiatrist and psychoanalyst practicing steps away from the Metropolitan Museum and Central Park. His work is grounded in the seminal discoveries of Sigmund Freud as well as later contributors including Klein, Lewin, Winnicott, and Meltzer. Dr. Van der Heide has spent over a decade teaching psychiatric residents how to initiate dynamic psychotherapy. He has spent the last ten years teaching at PANY while becoming a Supervising and Training Analyst. Dr. Van der Heide has had a special interest in clinical use of the dream and the multiple ways the dream can enrich the psychoanalytic enterprise. In 2019, he was honored to receive the first PANY teacher of the year award.

Navigating the Pornscape: Contemporary Pornography and Clinical Practice

Clinicians can struggle with countertransference reactions to pornography and lack a clear framework for working with this material. The role of fantasies, conscious and unconscious, realistic and impossible, is particularly emphasized in this discussion and in how to work effectively with issues related to pornography.

Presenter: Jason Wheeler, PhD

CME/ Social Work CE Credits Available: 1.5

About the Speaker(s)

Jason Wheeler, PhD is on the faculty of PANY and teaches on Freud and sexuality and gender in the Psychotherapy and Psychoanalytic programs. He is also active in writing and editing and is a member of the editorial board of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly.

About the Presentation

Pornography affects many people in therapy and analysis, directly or indirectly. For some it can be a shameful addiction and a main focus of treatment, for others a welcome part of a satisfying sexual life, and anywhere in between. Clinicians can struggle with countertransference reactions to pornography and lack a clear framework for working with this material. The role of fantasies, conscious and unconscious, realistic and impossible, is particularly emphasized in this discussion and in how to work effectively with issues related to pornography. The presentation includes some excerpts from the adult cartoon TV series, Big Mouth (Netflix), which illustrate some of these issues. Some typical clinical examples are also discussed.
Note: this presentation includes explicit sexual language, and the representation of pornography in adult cartoon form that is rated M for Mature.

Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:

1 Differentiate various uses of pornography that patients may discuss in therapy including problematic patterns.
2 Help patients identify conscious and unconscious fantasies involved in pornography use.
3 Learn a framework for helping patients develop more integrated sexual lives.

Scientific Meeting

Lecture | Monday September 13

Location: via Zoom Videoconference

Philip C. Wilson Nineteenth Memorial Lecture

"Aches, Pains, Rumbles, Restlessness: Embodied Countertransference Reactivity in Clinical Sessions"

This lecture will address the bodily intensities and sensations that come alive within the consulting room of the novice to the most experienced clinician that may go unrecognized, unmetabolized, and unprocessed. 

 

Kathryn J. Zerbe, MD

CME/ Social Work CE Credits Available

About the Speaker(s)

Kathryn J. Zerbe, MD is Training and Supervising Analyst, Oregon Psychoanalytic Institute and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Oregon Health Sciences University.

Dr. Z. is the author of 4 books and over 150 papers, chapters, and reviews, and she speaks nationally and internationally on topics such as eating disorders, resilience, therapeutic action, and creative growth over the lifecycle. Her books The Body Betrayed: Women, Eating Disorders and Treatment (1993/1995) and Integrated Treatment of Eating Disorders: Beyond the Body Betrayed (2008) are considered landmark contributions in the field. She attempts to bring psychodynamic principles and their applications to life in her writing and teaching to reach others outside the formal walls of psychoanalytic institutes and centers.

For her clinical, educational, and scholarly contributions, Dr. Zerbe has received numerous awards including the Alexandra Symonds Award from the American Psychiatric Association, the Edith Sabshin Teaching Award from the American Psychoanalytic Association, 7 “Best Teacher” of Psychiatry Residents awards, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Eating Disorder Association. She maintains a private practice in Portland, Oregon. Her recent written contributions focus on secrets in psychotherapy, somatic countertransference, and the bodymind relationship.

About the Presentation

The body/mind relationship of patient and therapist is receiving a new focus in psychodynamic clinical work in the 21st Century. This lecture will address the bodily intensities and sensations that come alive within the consulting room of the novice to the most experienced clinician that may go unrecognized, unmetabolized, and unprocessed. Patients often speak with and about their bodies, and the clinician who pays attention to these communications and those emanating from within our own body has an additional resource to understand what may be transpiring within the dyad. Because the analyst’s somatic and/or embodied countertransference reactions can also alert us to what is unconsciously split off, withheld, or burdensome that we may be holding for our patient, attention will be given to the often-neglected issue of the clinician’s self-care.

Learning Objectives

1. Demonstrate the importance of working with one’s bodily reactions as one guide in a therapeutic process
2. Recognize and use somatic/embodied countertransference reactions more effectively
3. Use 2 – 3 conceptual tools to facilitate, communicate, and understand unconscious communications that can become a source of transformation for patients.
