In the therapeutic process, we encounter impasses where one must seemingly harm or be harmed by the other, and it feels as though there is only room for one psyche to live. T concept of the moral Third is a way to think about a position from which to communicate, or step out of, the deep complementary structure underlying impasse. The moral Third can be defined as a representation of a lawful world of self and other that preserves attachment by repairing or acknowledging the inevitable violations of expected patterns. Such acknowledgment of misrecognition and injury is essential to repair, developmentally and therapeutically. Failure in this domain means that the need for such recognition is usually equated with being destructive to the needed other. In this light we will reread Klein’s ideas about reparation, translating them into the intersubjective view of disruption and repair, the co-creation of a meaningful world (representation) in which both can live.

NIPPA Focus Seminar: Vitalization in
Psychoanalysis

Sunday, February 11, 2018, 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

Presented by:
Amy Schwartz Cooney, PhD & Rachel Sopher, LCSW

Vitalization: Intersubjective and Intrapsychic Transformations

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

Registration Opening Soon

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.
