Building Capacities for Loving, Losing, and Growing

Presenter(s): Deborah Melman, Deborah Weisinger, Adam Beyda, Carolina Bacchi, Mary Tennes
Event Date: July 18, 2020

Please be advised, some technological challenges presented themselves during this event that periodically disrupt the clarity of some comments being made. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience with the oft-unpredictable nature of technological platforms like Zoom.

In the spirit of accountability, transparency and full disclosure, NCSPP would also like to make potential viewers of this on-demand video aware that some systemic failures in event planning and communication led to racialized transgressions within a simultaneous course devoted to clinicians of color which overlapped in schedule with this event. With some reparations made, NCSPP also believes our accountability and transparency are an essential part of our continued repair within our community. For more information, please refer to the letter sent to the ISG Introductory Event participants and presenters, found here. Please direct any further inquiries to our ISG Chair, Todd Rising, Psy.D.: trising@ncspp.org.

A Day with Kirkland Vaughans, Ph.D.

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

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

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.


Creativity and Imagination in Couple Psychoanalysis: The Influence of Winnicott & Bollas in Clinical Practice

Presenter(s): David Hewison, Shawnee Cuzzillo
Event Date: October 20, 2018

Join NCSPP and PCPG for our 11th Annual Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Lecture as we host David Hewison of Tavistock Relationships. Dr. Hewison will highlight Winnicott's and Bollas’ rich contributions to psychoanalysis and elaborate his own view on how these ideas can be creatively applied to understanding couple relationships. Shawnee Cuzzillo will serve as discussant and, in the afternoon, Dr. Hewison will illustrate his innovative ideas with a couple case presentation.

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

Presenter(s): Rose Gupta, Mali A. Mann
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.
