The PANY Graduate Society


The Graduate Society at PANY, founded in 1955, is comprised of PANY members who hold degrees in medicine, psychology, social work and other mental health professions. The Graduate Society has several functions. First, it represents our organization, PANY, as a component society of the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA). In addition, the Graduate Society sponsors monthly scientific meetings, providing a venue where scholars present recent findings in psychoanalysis as well as topics dealing with the relationship between psychoanalysis and other fields – such as child development, the neurosciences, and the arts. These meetings are open to the public, including psychoanalytic and psychotherapy candidates, and are designed to enhance the education of psychoanalytic clinicians. The Society also sponsors postgraduate seminars that are open to PANY faculty members. In addition to postgraduate education, the Society helps to promote practice development and the profession of psychoanalysis, including increasing public awareness of the wide usefulness of psychoanalytic ideas as well as the utility and efficacy of psychoanalytic therapies. The Society Student Aid Fund assists psychoanalytic candidates in financing their training. Finally, the Society sponsors social functions – fun get-togethers that are so important for strengthening the cohesiveness of our psychoanalytic association.

Philip C. Wilson Nineteenth Memorial Lecture

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

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.
