About the Presentation

For years psychoanalysts have been so invested in proving that psychoanalysis is a science that they have all but forgotten that it is an art of a kind.  There have been many attempts to tease apart creative and scientific aspects of psychoanalysis.  Bowlby famously made a distinction between “the art of psychoanalytic therapy and the science of psychoanalytic psychology.” Is such separation possible?  Is it useful?  This panel will discuss different aspects of creativity in everyday psychoanalytic work.  Dr. Shapiro will consider various definitions of creativity and explore their applicability to art and psychoanalysis.  He will investigate the use of the psychoanalytic setting as a creative integrative opportunity to facilitate the treatment.  Dr. Marcus will take up the issue of creativity in science and apply these thoughts to creativity and science in psychoanalytic work and research. The claim will be made that psychoanalytic work is inherently creative and can be scientific. Examples from dream interpretation with patients and use of dreams in social science research will be used to illustrate his ideas. Dr. Mirkin will discuss the transformative role of creativity in therapeutic action of

psychoanalysis.  She will outline the analyst’s contribution – the anslyst’s own creativity – to the treatment and suggest that the development of the patient’s creative capacity is a measure of the progress of the treatment.  The panelists will engage in discussion amongst themselves and with the audience to further our understanding of these complex issues.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the transformative role of creativity in a therapeutic action of psychoanalysis
  • Apply the transformative role of the analyst’s own creativity in the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis.
