NIP (National Institute for the Psychotherapies) - Annual Conference

Reconsidering the Erotic in the Analytic Encounter

Exploring the erotic can present tricky challenges and rich opportunities for the psychoanalytic couple. Historically, erotic feelings have often been considered as expressive of the patient’s infantile needs and conflicts and linked interpretively to the maternal transference and unresolved oedipal issues. In recent years, attempts have been made to theorize a place for adult sexuality within a two person model. Attention has turned to the analyst’ use of her subjectivity, the complexities of self-disclosure, the hazards of traumatic repetition and the possibilities of reparation and growth. Concurrent with these developments within our field, the advent of the “me too movement” has created a sea change in broader social attitudes towards gender, power and sexuality.

The NIP 2019 Conference will feature a distinguished panel of speakers including Andrea Celenza, Steven Cooper, Janine De Peyer, and Steven Kuchuck who will explore their theoretical and clinical views on the erotic. How have sociopolitical shifts impacted their perspectives as analysts? How do age, gender and power play into erotic explorations in the consulting room and in our institutes and supervisory relationships? How do we keep the therapeutic process mutual, asymmetric, and analytic when passion is in the air and our society is on heightened alert? These are some of the questions we will consider as we explore the erotic in contemporary psychoanalysis.

Learning Objectives

After completing the conference, attendees will:

1. Understand the way gender, power, and sexuality can influence the analytic conversation on the erotic.
2. Understand and be able to apply a broad range of psychoanalytic perspectives on working with the erotic in the transference/countertransference.
3. Become attuned to the way current cultural and social movements such as “me too” may influence the analytic process.
4. Become better able to work with erotic experiences and power dynamics in supervisory, teaching and institutional settings.
