Minds in Conflict: Couples Therapy Skills for the Dynamically Trained Clinician Susan Resek, LCSW
 
One Park Avenue, 8th Fl. (33rd St.)
 
It can be daunting for clinicians who work primarily with individuals to conduct therapy sessions with couples. Part of the challenge is shifting the focus of the clinical work from the dynamic mind of the individual to the dynamic created by the couple. In this two part presentation, we will review concepts from both psychoanalytic and systemic treatments to better understand that shift and to help clinicians gain confidence in their clinical skills working with couples.

Midlife Matters

Jason Wheeler, PhD
 
One Park Avenue, 8th Fl. (33rd St.)
 
Midlife, the period that spans the "old age of youth" and the "youth of old age," brings new challenges as well as amplifying old conflicts and deficits. This presentation integrates relevant theoretical ideas with cultural and clinical examples of midlife issues. Success or failure at coping with the tasks of this period can mean the difference between negotiating a transition and suffering a crisis.

Psychosis and Psychoanalysis
Joel Gold, MD
 
One Park Avenue, 8th Fl. (33rd St.)

 
Before the advent of anti-psychotic medications, the only treatment options available to psychiatrists who worked with patients with psychosis in the first half of the 20th century were talk therapies and brutal somatic ones, notably frontal lobotomy. The results of the psychoanalysis of psychosis were decidedly mixed, but over the last 35 years negative, even hostile attitudes toward talk therapies with psychotic individuals have taken root.
 
This talk will endeavor to address appropriate concerns while also revisiting the utility of a psychoanalytic approach toward patients with schizophrenia and other psychotic illness. We will review of the history of the seminal contributions of psychoanalytic thinkers to theories of psychosis, as well as their applications. The benefits, limitations and dangers of psychoanalytic treatments of psychosis will be addressed.

Since Freud's opus of 1900 the dream and the process of dreaming remain the royal road to the heart of our work. To know how to work with dreams is tantamount to knowing how to do psychoanalysis. In this lecture I will review the core discoveries of mind, starting with Freud, which explain the why and wherefore of dreaming with the goal of underscoring how to work with them in the office to enrich and deepen the therapeutic exchange.
