Event description

Description

This seminar will explore Vitalization, focusing on interventions that move the patient and the treatment from states of deadness and deadlock to enlivenment and vibrant relatedness. We’ll consider the analyst’s use of herself and the role of old and new object experiences in creative transformations. Amy Schwartz Cooney will propose the notion of vitalizing enactment, defined as uniquely progressive enactments that bring embryonic experiences to life in the analytic dyad and are transformative as lived encounters rather than in retrospective processing. Rachel Sopher will explore the ways in which the analyst lives in deep communion with the patient’s inner experience, allowing its uniqueness to impact her own internal world, creating opportunities for new and enlivening experiences between them. Attendees will be invited to join in this comparative exploration.
