Description

Making Psychoanalysis More Colorful

Presented by:
Neil Altman, PhD
Cleonie White, PhD

Brought to you by NIP's Psychoanalysis & Comprehensive Psychotherapy's Graduating Class of 2018 and the NIP Candidate Committee on Inclusion and Diversity (CCID).

DESCRIPTION

In this program, we will look at the historical process by which psychoanalysis has become situated in European culture, with the result that people from Asian, African, and Latin American cultural backgrounds may feel that the theory and technique are alien. The discussion will focus on how psychoanalytic theory and technique has evolved, and might continue to evolve, in such a way as to make them more flexible with respect to culture. We encourage people to bring clinical vignettes, dilemmas, and impasses from their own practices, in which race, social class, and/or culture might have been a focus of difficulty so that we, as a group, can work toward raised consciousness with respect to these social factors.
