Ketamine is a fascinating medicine with rapid-acting antidepressant effects and visionary properties. The goal of this class is to help psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapists identify which patients might benefit from a referral for adjunctive ketamine treatment, and to evaluate whether they might want to work with ketamine lozenges in their clinical practices, which is possible using a triadic treatment model (patient, psychotherapist, prescriber).

A Day with Kirkland Vaughans, Ph.D.

Presenter(s): Kirkland Vaughns, Diane Adams
Event Date: May 18, 2019
CE Credits: 6.00

This presentation is designed to describe the multiple factors in the marginalization of Black youth, including a failure in society’s mentalization of Black boys, a phenomenon most often reflected in the denial of their developmental period of “boyhood.” Thus, rather than an image of Black boys as vulnerable and at risk, a mentalized social image of what has been described as “a denigrated self-image” is perpetuated. The research documenting the need for this presentation grew out of “The Brotherman Study,” a project that interviewed 40 lower- to upper-middle-class Black boys and their parents to give credence to their voices and individual needs. This course is designed for all mental health professionals, from beginning to advanced levels. It is geared towards clinicians who wish to further their knowledge and expand their skill base in psychodynamic clinical work with Black boys.

Music, Identification, and the Oceanic Feeling

Presenter(s): Adam Blum, Francisco J. Gonzalez
Event Date: March 17, 2019
CE Credits: 3.00

What might the oceanic feeling have to do with music? One answer is that Freud claimed to feel neither of them, a biographical detail that is often attributed to his anxiety about undifferentiation, a fear of sameness, literal homophobia. This program resumes a Freudian voyage potentiated by his sea-change theory of sexuality using contemporary cultural objects including William Finnegan’s surfing memoir, Barbarian Days; John Luther Adams’ environmentalist composition for orchestra, “Become Ocean”; and Frank Ocean’s Blonde trilogy to explore and contrast the erotics of identification (based on shared experience) with sexual complementarity (based on difference) through the work of Adam Phillips, Harold Boris, Leo Bersani, and Jean Laplanche.

CE Credits: 6.00

The Analyst’s Intersubjective Collision with Unsymbolized Thought and Unrepresented Mental States

Event Date: September 22, 2018

In response to participants from “Locating Unrepresented Thought” in Spring 2017, we’re elaborating on the interrelationship between intersubjectivity, unrepresented states, and unsymbolized thought and offering more clinical examples of the extended use of the analyst’s mind. We will talk about a relational, intersubjective view whereby thoughts are made from the interactions between subjects.
