Shame is a powerfully disorganizing affect that can be difficult to manage in life and in the treatment relationship. As such psychoanalysts have increasingly been focusing on it from various perspectives. The NIP 2018 Annual Conference will feature a distinguished panel of speakers including, Sandra Buechler, Jody Davies, and Dan Hill who will explore their own unique theoretical and clinical views on shame. How does shame relate to early attachment and impact emotional regulation? How can the analyst work with shame in the transference/countertransference? How does shame play out in the interpersonal matrix of the analytic relationship? These are some of the questions we will reflect on as we discuss Contemporary Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Shame.

Integrative Trauma Colloquium: Female Genital Mutilation / Cutting

Thursday, March 15, 2018, 7:00pm - 9:00p pm

Presented by:
Carl Boyr, MD
Joanna Vergoth LCSW, NCPsyA

Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) – A Culturally Sanctioned Trauma: Intervention and Treatment in the U.S. and Europe

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

The harmful practice of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) has been followed by many different cultures and societies across the ages and continents. It is an ancient tradition, involving the removal of parts or all of the external female genitalia. There are approximately 200 million survivors in the world today, while in Africa alone, a further 3 million girls are at risk of being cut this year. As a result of migration, cases of this practice have been documented in the Middle East, Europe, Australia and Canada.  In the US, there are over 500,000 women and girls between the ages of 15 and 49 who are at risk or have been cut; the New York metropolitan area has the largest concentration of this population.

 

Trauma imprints from this injurious tradition may include lifelong health complications.  In addition to medical consequences, many girls and young women suffer serious psychological distress, sexual difficulties, and social stigmatisms from the effects of FGM/C.  This presentation will discuss the significant neurological and psycho-sexual impacts, as well as explore the historical transmission and subsequent intergenerational trauma of FGM/C. An overview of frequently used psychotropic medications to treat trauma, including survivors of FGM/C, will also be presented. 

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the fundamentals of FGM/C: What it is, where it happens, and why it persists.   
  2. Examine the psychological and psycho-sexual consequences related to the trauma of FGM/C.
  3. Compare and contrast the mechanisms, side effects, and efficacy of commonly-used psychotropic medications to treat trauma, including FGM/C.

Advanced CE Workshop: Developmental Psychoanalysis Today

Saturday, March 24, 2018, 10:00am - 3:00pm

Presented by:
Stephen Seligman, D.M.H.

Developmental Psychoanalysis Today: A Relationship-Based Perspective

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

This workshop will consider how analytic practice can be affected by thinking about infants and children, asking how (and whether) we can talk about babies and patients in the same breath. Video illustrations will be included, and case material will be considered.

We will bring together what remains vital in the classical psychoanalytic traditions with the emerging intersubjectivist-Relational sensibility, including new findings in the areas of attachment, infant-parent interaction research, developmental neuroscience, trauma, and the like. We will consider analogies between infant-parent and patient-therapist interaction patterns, how looking at babies brings the lived experience of the body back into analysis, and helps us think about the non-verbal, emotional and interactive realms. An orientation to the history of developmental psychoanalysis and the place of infancy and childhood in different analytic approaches will be offered. The different “analytic babies” are described and compared--Freud’s baby, Klein’s baby, Winnicott’s baby, the Relational baby….

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will increase their use of psychotherapeutic interventions based on understanding how young children develop.
  2. Participants will be able to make useful and direct observations of therapist-patient interactions.
  3. Participants will clarify how different psychoanalytic conceptions of infancy affect their own case formulation and intervention strategies.

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.
