This talk has been approved by New York State for 2 hours of Continuing Education Credit for LMSWs and LCSWs.
Much is written on the overlap and the “bi-directional” influence of one psychoanalytic approach on another; however, it still remains difficult in our field to truly dissolve polarities between orientations. This presentation is a pointed attempt to describe similarities between two approaches typically seen as incompatible: Relational Theory and Modern Psychoanalysis. Deconstructing material from Dr. Frank Lachmann's work with "Karen", Dr. Levitz will illustrate the congruence and harmony of these theories.
Judy Levitz, Ph.D., NCPsyA, is the Founding Director of PPSC where she also teaches and supervises.
She is the author of "Contact Function Revisited", "Is This Normal: Uncovering the Role of Homophobia in the Treatment of a Lesbian Couple", "A Pluralistic Psychodynamic Approach to Sexual and Other Addictions" and "How to Dig for the Deeper Meaning in Substance Abuse". She is currently the coordinator of the PPSC Advanced Psychodynamic Addictions Treatment Training Program, and maintains an individual, couple, group and supervisory private practice in Manhattan.
