‘So this is the Strong Sex’ Women in Psychoanalysis @ Freud Museum London Tickets
Nov 29 2017 – Feb 4 2018 all-day
'So this is the Strong Sex' Women in Psychoanalysis @ Freud Museum London

The Freud Museum London’s upcoming exhibition “So this is the Strong Sex”: Women in Psychoanalysis explores the lives and work of a number of women from the early history of psychoanalysis. An exciting collaboration with the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, this historically focussed exhibition showcases the major influence Marie Bonaparte, Helene Deutsch, Emma Eckstein, Anna Freud, Lou Andreas-Salomé and Sabina Spielrein had on the work of Sigmund Freud and the development of psychoanalysis.

Using materials from the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, the show will connect the achievements of these figures with the era in which they lived. Seeking to challenge the idea of psychoanalysis as a science dominated by men, the issues of childcare in Vienna of the 1920s and 1930s, the development of international women’s movements, and core topics of psychoanalysis such as the Oedipus complex, transference and countertransference, sexuality and femininity will be explored.

For the first time ever the Freud Museum London will be exhibiting unpublished letters from Princess Marie Bonaparte, a figure integral to the Freud family’s escape from the Nazis in 1938. Alongside antiquities from Freud’s collection which Bonaparte personally smuggled out of Nazi-occupied Vienna, this opening up of the archive is an exciting opportunity to discover the personal correspondence of Anna and Sigmund Freud, and their most trusted confidantes.

Original exhibition conceived and designed by Monika Pessler, Daniela Finzi and Johanna Frei, Sigmund Freud Museum Vienna

Unravelling the transference: Working in and with unconscious processes in the consulting room @ WPF Therapy Limited Tickets
Feb 3 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Unravelling the transference: Working in and with unconscious processes in the consulting room @ WPF Therapy Limited

This workshop will help participants to develop their ability to recognise and better understand transference and how to use it through their clinical practice.

The intention of this workshop is to help participants develop:

  • confidence in recognising the presence of unconscious repetitive processes at play.
  • skills to put the transference into conscious knowledge and words in clinical work with particular reference to negative and erotic transference
  • an ability to unravel the transference so a creative space can be opened to explore the compulsion everyone has to repeat the past, between staying with the old and moving towards the new

The transference is probably the most important instrument for discovering a patient or client’s inner world and an essential precondition regarding the effectiveness of in-depth treatment. Yet it can provoke the most concern from clinicians because it is largely an unconscious phenomenon that can dominate and prolong treatment. Often the therapist becomes unknowingly involved with playing a particular role in the patient’s inner drama. It can be hard to know and name what is going on. Unravelling the transference is an essential task for the psychoanalytic or psychodynamic clinician wanting to extend their skills and overall sense of competence.

This one-day workshop (linked to the Countertransference workshop on 17th March 2018) will give a historical and contemporary overview of theory. However, the main emphasis will be practical approaches based on clinical work and the development of skills and insight. It will include images and narrative, key quotations, clinical examples, exercises to flesh out transference in a hands-on way. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions.

Discount Available: This workshop may be attended in conjunction with Swimming in Murky Waters: A practical guide to working with countertransference on the 17th March 2018. If both workshops are booked at the same time the fee for attending both will be £210 (Qualified Practitioners) , £160 (trainee rate) or £120 (WPF Therapy trainee rate).  Please note that both workshops must be booked at the same time to qualify for the discount.

The workshop is open to qualified and training psychotherapists and counsellors. The theoretical orientation of the workshop will be psychodynamic but practitioners of other modalities are welcome to attend.

Comments from a previous workshop:

  • “This workshop has been thought-provoking and leaves me inspired to incorporate the ideas presented and explored into my client work.”
  • “I think the tutor is the big attraction (for me).”
  • “In unravelling the transference, it brings together the transference.”
  • “The case studies we worked with created a fascinating discussion about how to interpret and work with transference.”

The Fictions of Dreams: Dreams and Literature @ Institute of Group Analysis Tickets
Feb 10 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Fictions of Dreams: Dreams and Literature @ Institute of Group Analysis

With Otto M Rheinschmiedt (SPEAKER/CONVENOR) and Morris Nitsun (CHAIR)

Dreams and literature are closely related. The dream’s essence lies in its narrative facility. Dreams are autobiographical fictions that tell the story of the dreamer’s life history, her insertion in trans-generational family themes, and her ethnic and cultural identity. In that sense dreams are psychosocial depositories and makers, not unlike world literature which recreates interiority and historicity of a given time period. Literature is a dream gone solid. And the process of fiction writing duplicates the dream’s inherent storytelling capacity.

The poetry of dreams and world literature employ the same writerly devices. Patrick Modiano, in his memorial mode of writing, takes us into broken memory at the time of the French Occupation, in a reflection of a dreamer slowly but not entirely recovering from traumatisation. Gabriel Garcia Marquez uses the method of multi-temporality which is the simultaneous occurance of past, present, and future, a feature which gives credence to the non-chronological, cyclical nature of dreams. Kafka, the ‘poet of his own disorder’, writing directly from dreams, gave expression to human alienation. His writing style of obscure lucidity comes close to the poetic nature of dreams, bringing forth the unknown and the unthinkable from the recesses of the mind. Irene Némirovsky, writing in the midst of France’s Nazi Occupation during the exodus from Paris, became a writer steeped in historical consciousness that is also a dream conception. Australian author Patrick White’s notion of writing, ‘infinite connectivity’, is duplicated in the dream’s capacity to dismantle ego identity, and by doing so reaches into the domain of inter-relatedness of all beings and we-consciousness, the spiritual dimension of dreaming.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
This workshop aims to make dream analysis more accessible to the group forum by focusing on the narrative nature of dreams and to introduce a model of the dreaming mind which brings order to the chaos of the internal world.

  1. increase their knowledge and learning on the psychological nature of divorce.
  2. learn about the parallel interaction between the legal and psychological processes of divorce.
  3. learn about the different types of divorce and separation presentations met in the consulting room.
  4. consider the changes in clinical technique required when working with divorce and separation.

Thinking on the Border: Memory and the Trauma in Society Tickets
Mar 3 @ 10:15 am – 12:45 pm
Thinking on the Border: Memory and the Trauma in Society @ England | United Kingdom

How does an individual human being return from the far reaches of certain terrible experiences?

  • From being in the trenches of the Somme?
  • From crawling through the sewers of the Warsaw Ghetto?
  • From Atomic destruction?
  • From today’s random bombings

to the fragile meaning of life as a mass movement of people flees to Europe. And these modern matters are contributing to a severe rise in anti-immigrant rhetoric and prejudice towards other human beings.

Walter Benjamin described how, prior to the First World War, experience was passed down through the generations in the form of folklore and fairy tales (Xi The Storyteller). Have such descriptive threads become broken in our modern times?

Depression Inside Out: psychoanalytic therapies as mental health provisions for development @ London | England | United Kingdom

A joint Tavistock Clinic and UCL Psychoanalysis Unit Conference

 

Recent UK RCT research programmes offer good quality RCT evidence for the positive effect of psychoanalytic therapies provided at various points in the life-cycle to NHS patients suffering from depression.

They include the Tavistock Adult Depression Study’s [i] evaluation of 60 session therapies for adults with chronic treatment-resistant depressions and the Impact Study’s [ii] comparative evaluation of 28 session psychoanalytic therapies for adolescents with major depressive disorder. And in the EU, the German multi-centre LAC Study[iii] has investigated the benefit of 80 sessions of psychoanalytic therapy with chronically depressed adults. Much has been learned in addition by these Studies’ use of qualitative research and by their clinicians’ use of the psychoanalytic research method.

Trials 2012, 13:117: http://www.trialsjournal.com/content/13/1/117STUDY PROTOCOL Open

This joint Tavistock/UCL Psychoanalysis Unit Conference will offer a unique combination of in-depth clinical and research presentations by some of the workers principally involved in these studies, plus consideration of the role of briefer psychodynamic approaches, reviews of other key depression research, and discussions of topics such as suicide.

 

The morning session of this conference will consist of keynote presentations by principal researchers providing expert overviews of the research findings now available and clinicians describing what the psychoanalytic treatments of depression involved.

The programme in the afternoon will have two sessions, each of four parallel papers, given by the Studies’ researchers and psychoanalytic clinicians as well as other key colleagues. Their topics will be:

  • Continuities and discontinuities operating in depression across the life-cycle
  • The Varieties of Depression and what underpins them
  • Factors that determine treatment responsiveness or treatment resistance, and the stability of response.
  • Is a distinctive type of change associated with psychoanalytic treatments?
  • The psychoanalytic therapies – including clinical management issues such as suicide risk
  • The potential of psychoanalytic understanding and therapies for In-Patient psychiatric settings
  • Applying the psychoanalytic understanding of realism, mortality and loss across the life-cycle: the case of Hospice work
  • Depression in Primary Care

This conference aims to be a working event and there will be time for those attending to contribute. The closing plenary panel will formulate a view of the potential of psychoanalytic therapies to add to what is currently on offer for the treatment of depressive and allied disorders and to have a wider positive role in the mental health services of the future.

On the Friday before the Conference day itself, clinical workshops & research masterclasses will be available.  Details will be posted here in due course.

Speakers will include: 

Peter Fonagy

Caroline Garland

Francesca Hume

Marianne Leuzinger-Bohleber

Felicitas Rost

Exploration in The Greener Grass: Understanding Envy in Working with Couple Dynamics @ Tavistock Relationships Tickets
Mar 10 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Exploration in The Greener Grass: Understanding Envy in Working with Couple Dynamics @ Tavistock Relationships

Envy can be difficult to work with and, perhaps because of this, it can be easy to overlook in the consulting room. This study day will explore envy as an intrinsic component of intimate relationships – including the therapeutic one.

It has been 60 years since Melanie Klein’s Envy and Gratitude was published. Her concept of primary envy saw the roots of envy lying in the inevitably unequal relationship between mother and infant. Envy, with its links with the projective system, repetition, destructiveness and potential reparation, still remains at the heart of psychoanalytically- oriented work with couples and individuals.

An examination of envy and its workings will involve discussions around greed, oedipal dilemmas, humiliation, dependency, jealousy, gratitude and love.

This study day will include lectures, experiential work and clinical presentations. Participants are asked to bring cases and to be prepared to think about where envy is located in their clinical work with individuals, couples and families, and how it might be addressed.

 

Who is it for? Counsellors and therapists and students who wish to consider in depth the concept of envy and how it manifests itself and can be worked with both within intimate relationships and in the consulting room.
