Event description

Description

The Sandor Ferenczi Center at The New School presents:

GHOSTS IN THE 21ST CENTURY CONSULTING ROOM: Exploring the Wounded Healer


SATURDAY DECEMBER 9, 2017 10am -3pm.

Faculty/Participants:
Adrienne Harris, Moderator.
With Michael Feldman, Heather Ferguson, Arthur Fox, Susan Klebanoff, Margery Kalb.
Discussant: Richard Brockman.

In short personal/clinical vignettes, presenters will illustrate the intermingling of their histories and that of their patients’ during particularly challenging times (death of a precious loved one--lost in childhood, lost in adulthood, lost in death, and lost in alienation). Drawing on the work of Apprey, the Barrangers, Freud, Rey, and Winnicott, we explore the long standing unconscious contract or project many of us have in the care and repair of our dead and dying objects in our internal worlds.


We ask: what does the analyst bring to treatment, how does this potentially intermingle with our patients’ histories, and how does this contribute to stalemates? These deeply personal stories animate problems of impasse, often the site of stalled mourning for both analyst and patient.

In break-out groups, we invite participants to explore their own stories, often hidden, buried, and under-narrated, that carry, enact, and hopefully heal into the present.
