The development of an “analytic process” is considered central to the therapeutic action of psychoanalytic treatments. But what do we mean when we say an analytic process is occurring? And how do we facilitate its development? The past year has witnessed massive disruptions to the therapeutic frame and a growing pressure to address urgent social issues. What makes the analytic process robust enough to continue to facilitate growth?

7:00pm Online Lecture & Discussion
Online registration is required for this program. All registrants will receive a Zoom Meeting Link.
The 2020 Fall Academic Lecture
The development of an “analytic process” is considered central to the therapeutic action of psychoanalytic treatments. But what do we mean when we say an analytic process is occurring? And how do we facilitate its development? The past year has witnessed massive disruptions to the therapeutic frame and a growing pressure to address urgent social issues. What makes the analytic process robust enough to continue to facilitate growth? Does the analytic stance have something to offer beyond the consulting room? These questions will be explored and clinical examples will be used to illustrate this fundamental concept. The presentation will increase participants’ ability to characterize and describe elements of analytic process, and the mechanisms which make it an essential component of psychoanalytic treatment.
