 SCIENTIFIC MEETING

THEM NOT US: FINDING RACIST STATES OF MIND
WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECT 
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2018 – 7:30 PM
PRESENTER: JOSEPH REYNOSO, Ph.D.

 Psychoanalytic scholars have increasingly addressed the unconscious dynamics involved in racial prejudice.  Unsurprisingly, the subjects of this work are frequently persons whose personalities (or parts thereof) are understood to be categorically racist.  Following the results of the 2016 election, however, many Americans were confronted by the capacity seemingly non-racist individuals have to endorse social aggression in political leadership.  Dr. Reynoso will challenge the method of pursuing racial hate in the mind of “the racist.”  The presentation will describe how the pragmatic efficiency of racist templates defend against the ever-present threat of intolerable anxieties in all individuals. 

 Dr. Reynoso will argue that we must look to those we may least expect to begin to comprehensively examine racist states of mind at the individual and group levels.  To do so, he will draw on his clinical work with children, politically-progressive individuals and persons of color to conceptualize the ubiquity of unconscious organizing principles based on racial hatred. Also, Dr. Reynoso will reflect on encountering his own racist state of mind, as a clinician of color, within a psychoanalytic treatment.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to 1) use psychoanalytic concepts to formulate how racist states of mind can serve to protect against unthinkable anxieties in both the clinician and patient, 2) identify how racial aggression is expressed in unconscious self-object representational dyads, and 3) discuss group and Oedipal factors that reinforce racial prejudice.

 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.

He is a Supervising Analyst, Faculty, and Former Director of the Licensure-Qualifying Program in Psychoanalysis at William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis and Psychology, and Past Director, Training Analyst, Faculty and Supervisor at Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis. Dr. Zicht is an Associate Editor of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
