By listening with our whole being, opening to bodily and affective reveries- our embodied mind- the analyst expands their scope of understanding. We feel our way into our patient’s experience with all our senses, listening to how patients tell their story. We attune to the rhythmic patterns--accents, cadence, silences—the affective tone and the musicality behind the words. In this presentation, we introduce a form of embodied communication that we refer to as “embodied resonance.” Through case examples and a series of interactive exercises, the participants will explore how physiological states evoked in treatment, implicitly or explicitly felt by analyst and patient, influences the transference/countertransference surround. We strive to heighten awareness to the bodily register as crucial data about the patient, the analyst and the interactive process.                                     


Caryn Sherman-Meyer, LCSW is faculty, supervisor and training analyst at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies and other New York City analytic institutes. She writes, teaches and supervises about eating disorders, embodiment and the intersubjective field in psychoanalysis. In recent articles and presentations, she has examined the therapeutic action of bi-directional bodily communication between patient and analyst. Caryn offers individual, couple and group psychotherapy and psychoanalysis as well supervision in her private practice in New York City.

Heather Ferguson, LCSW is faculty and supervisor at the Institute for Expressive Analysis, the Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, and lecturer at NIP and Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis.   Heather has chapters in two books from Routledge:  Ghosts in the Consulting Room: Echoes of Trauma in Psychoanalysis, (Editors Harris, Kalb, and Klebanoff) and Art, Creativity, and Psychoanalysis: Perspectives from Analyst-Artists, Editor, George Hagman, be released this month.  Heather teaches and writes about a range of topics related to eating disorder treatment, trauma and grief and has a private practice in NYC.

Experiential Interventions for Dissociation

Thursday, April 12, 2018, 7:00 – 9:00pm

Presented by:
Amy Gladstone, LCSW, PhD

How to Check In When Clients Check Out: Experiential Interventions for Dissociation

The National Institute for the Psychotherapies
250 West 57th Street, Suite 501
New York, NY 10107

Dissociative material is a challenge to work with using traditional talk therapy methods. Newer models of practice that emphasize the body, present-moment experience, state specific processing and mindfulness offer useful techniques to manage and process dissociation.  In this introductory workshop, Dr. Gladstone will focus somatic psychotherapy as a means of working with dissociated affect.  Using clinical examples, she will demonstrate the use of experiential body based techniques that effectively target dissociative processes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify two types of dissociation, altered states of consciousness and compartmentalization.
  2. Identify how these two types of dissociation each requires different treatment approaches.
  3. Examine the therapeutic action in somatic psychotherapy with both types of dissociation. 

Amy Gladstone, LCSW, PhD is a clinician, supervisor, workshop leader and social work educator with over 25 years of clinical experience. She teaches doctoral level courses on affect regulation and attachment in Rutgers DSW program and is on the faculty of the Integrative Trauma Treatment Program at NIP. In addition, Dr. Gladstone is a New York trainer for Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body based talking therapy. She is also certified in Somatic Experiencing. In her private practice, Dr. Gladstone specializes in attachment trauma and combines psychodynamic and somatic approaches to treatment.

Advanced CE: The Relativity of Morality

Saturday, April 28, 2018, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Presented by:
Anna Ornstein, MD

The Relativity of Morality: Clinical and Political Significance

The National Institute for the Psychotherapies
250 West 57th Street, Suite 501
New York, NY 10107

Register Here

What are the clinician’s guiding principles when confronted with issues related to morality? In raising this question, Freudian (superego) and post-Freudian (values and ideals) concepts as well as the analyst's subjectivity in the treatment process will be examined. How do political systems affect one's individual sense of morality? We will use Nazi Germany as an example to trace the psychological changes that were made possible by the exposure to a charismatic leader and steady propaganda.  This will give us the opportunity to gain insight into the psychology of bystanders.

 

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the relationship between ideals and one's individual sense of morality.
  2. Examine the importance of the analyst's value system and worldview in the analytic treatment process.
  3. Describe experiences that can lead to psychological "conversions" in totalitarian political systems.

What is psychoanalytic training?

When you think of psychoanalysis, does it bring to mind a New Yorker cartoon of a bearded man sitting behind a couch while a patient free associates? That caricature bears almost no resemblance to today’s psychoanalysis. Contemporary psychoanalysis is a vital, interactive psychotherapy that emphasizes a collaborative relationship built on authentic expression and mutual respect. Today’s psychoanalysis is no antiquated theory but a vibrant, ever-evolving way of understanding people’s inner worlds and the complexities of human relationships. Training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis fosters deep access into the elaborate networks that make up mental life, illuminating and loosening entrenched patterns of behavior and fostering the growth of new ones, leading to profound, long-lasting change. In addition to enhancing clinical skills and expanding intellectual understanding, psychoanalytic training brings about life-altering self knowledge and psychological development in the trainee, helping him or her cultivate a unique, authentic, and actualized clinical voice.

Why Train at NIP?

Training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy is both didactic and experiential, creating a powerful immersive experience that promotes personal and professional development. NIP’s approach to training is unique in its comprehensiveness and attention to the needs of each candidate. The psychoanalytic training program consists of classes in theory and technique; direct clinical work with patients under expert clinical supervision; and personal psychoanalysis. Our didactic courses are taught by a highly esteemed faculty who are well known in the field for their publications, presentations and leadership in professional organizations. The faculty’s expertise and the small class size foster an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity and creative dialogue that contributes to an intense, scholarly, and in-depth educational experience. The extensive curriculum includes a thorough history of traditional psychoanalytic thought, from its Freudian origins up through the latest contemporary developments in neuroscience and attachment theory. NIP’s program of study foregrounds cutting edge approaches to therapeutic action, encompassing contemporary Freudian, object relational, interpersonal, and self psychological theories with a strong emphasis on contemporary relational psychoanalysis. In addition, trainees benefit from a strong, warm, vibrant community dedicated to ongoing learning and professional development. Now in its fifth decade, NIP enjoys an international reputation of clinical and scholarly excellence, a thriving in-house treatment center, and the ongoing, dedicated involvement of its many distinguished alumni.
