Important Notice About PANY Events

For academic year September 2021-May 2022:

The determination has been made to start the 2021-22 academic year as Virtual Learning. Prelude to Training, Graduate Society Events, and Fellowship will be held virtually through the end of the calendar year.

Our ultimate goal is to return to in-person learning after this period. Except for the pilot virtual opportunities in the advanced training programs, we don’t anticipate offering having hybrid learning (mix of in person and virtual participant/instruction). We will continue to provide input regarding our programs, and all scenarios can be dealt with individually, to determine feasibility.

Playfulness in Adult Psychoanalysis

Starting with Freud who brought it up on several occasions, psychoanalysts have been intrigued by the concept of play and playfulness.  Many analysts from Phyllis Greenacre to Melanie Klein and Donald Winnicott contributed to our understanding of the difference between the therapeutic play and playing games, clarified the mechanism of the therapeutic action of play, and explored a connection between playing and creativity.

About the Presentation

Starting with Freud who brought it up on several occasions, psychoanalysts have been intrigued by the concept of play and playfulness.  Many analysts from Phyllis Greenacre to Melanie Klein and Donald Winnicott contributed to our understanding of the difference between the therapeutic play and playing games, clarified the mechanism of the therapeutic action of play, and explored a connection between playing and creativity.  Significant bulk of the psychoanalytic thinking about play has been made in the context of working with children. With the broadening of the scope of psychoanalysis, the importance of adjusting the technique to the needs of the patients unprepared to use classic interpretation generated interest in using play in adult analysis. This panel will address how the panelists, all of them child and adult analysts, have been able to enrich and enliven their psychoanalytic work with adults by utilizing their experience of working with children.  Dr. Anzieu–Premmereur will discuss how being a child analyst freed her to play with associations, use metaphors, and include humor in her work with adults.  Dr. Herzog will explore the lasting impact of being in analysis as a child on the capacity for playfulness in the adults.  Dr. Bolognini will speak about the development of playfulness as an important goal of psychoanalysis and one of the criteria for termination.  Ample time will be left for discussion with the audience.

Learning Objectives

To clarify how the experience of the psychoanalytic work with children enriches the psychoanalytic work with adults.

To demonstrate the lasting effect of being treated in psychoanalysis as a child on the capacity for creativity in the adults.

To illustrate the importance of the capacity for playfulness in adults for the psychoanalytic process.

The Triadic Nature of Trauma: Revisiting Dissociation and the Psychoanalysis of the Traumatized Mind

To fully restore the role of dissociation in primitive mental states and provide a more integrated approach to technique, it is necessary to comprehend the triadic nature of trauma, which entails economic/drive, structural conflict and deficit, and object-relational factors.

 

CME/CE Credits Available: 2

About the Speaker(s)

Michael J. Diamond,, PhD, is a practicing clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst and the author of the book My Father Before Me: How Fathers & Sons Influence Each Other Throughout Their Lives. Dr. Diamond received his doctorate in psychology from Stanford University and completed his psychoanalytic training at the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies, where he is currently a training and supervising analyst. Dr. Diamond is an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA and is on the faculty at the Wright Institute Los Angeles. As an expert on parenting and fathering, Dr. Diamond has written numerous articles and publications on fathering and father-son relationships. He lives in Los Angeles.

About the Presentation

To fully restore the role of dissociation in primitive mental states and provide a more integrated approach to technique, it is necessary to comprehend the triadic nature of trauma, which entails economic/drive, structural conflict and deficit, and object-relational factors. For a treatment model that addresses defensive dissociation in the here and now, primary and secondary dissociation must be distinguished, with each differentiated from splitting and repression. Technique requires addressing unconscious, repressed fantasies associated with the “trauma,” object- relational patterns that interfere with linking, and psycho-economic issues that have disrupted ego functioning. A clinical example illustrates both the analyst’s persistence in suffering the dead, eerie space of dissociated trauma and efforts to find language that helps structure the patient’s somatic and enacted expressions (and accompanying dissociative and repressive processes) by which traumatic experiences are registered and conveyed.

Learning Objectives

(1) participants will learn to describe the triadic nature of trauma; (2) participants will learn to distinguish primary from secondary dissociation; (3) participants will become more skilled in recognizing the role played by conflictual repressed material occurring when dissociative processes are operative in the transference (and countertransference); (4) participants will learn how to more effectively utilize the analyst's countertransference and unbidden reveries as a pathway to uncover the patient's unconscious, dissociative experience; and (5) participants will develop their skill in structuring and perhaps transforming the patient's somatic and enacted expressions in the analytic dyad.
