 CLINICAL WORKSHOP

PSYCHOANALYTIC INQUIRY AND THE IMMEDIACY OF THE HERE-AND-NOW EXPERIENTIAL ENCOUNTER 
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2018
PRESENTER: STEFAN R. ZICHT, PSY.D.

 This is a workshop on the fundamental principles of Interpersonal psychoanalysis and their clinical application. Originating with Harry Stack Sullivan’s pioneering notions regarding the therapist’s inevitable personal and subjective clinical participation and the utility and application of clinical inquiry, Interpersonal psychoanalysis was further informed and deepened by Erich Fromm’s existential and humanistic emphases on utilizing the immediacy of the here-and-now encounter in the clinical situation. The Interpersonal tradition has come to provide a central foundation for contemporary relational perspectives. This seminar will explore both the art and technique of developing a viable and transformative treatment process, through studying the development and evolution of Interpersonal psychoanalytic theory and practice from its origins to its contemporary elaborations. 

Learning objectives:

Participants will: 1) become familiar with the notions of participant observation and its evolution, 2) learn about detailed inquiry, and its application as both technique and stance, 3) become familiar with Erich Fromm’s ideas about treatment being a here-and-now lived experiential encounter, 4)understand the utility and application of “field theory” as informing the figure and ground relationship of transference/countertransference.
