Practical Psychoanalysis: Basic Principles and Curative Factors
Presenter: Laura Barbanel, Ed.D.
This webinar will be a conversation about Practical psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis, although sometimes seen as esoteric and not pertinent to today’s world, is the basis for all other forms of psychotherapy. Its principles are important to understand to work with patients. Psychoanalysis as a “practical” method will be the focus. Central to the discussion will be the clinical benefits and curative factors. The webinar will address the power of the work through understanding of the basic principles of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic/psychodynamic treatment, including developmental issues, issues of the unconscious, and of defense. The treatment, including boundaries and limitations will be discussed. Learning will be largely through clinical material. How to begin the work, how to continue the work and how to terminate will be covered. This webinar will be the first of a two-part sequence.
Dr. Barbanel is a psychologist, psychoanalyst in Brooklyn Heights, NY, working with individuals, couples, and families. She has trained psychologists, social workers, and counselors in psychodynamic psychotherapy over the past few decades both through her work as the director of a graduate program in psychology at Brooklyn College, her faculty and directorship at the Manhattan Institute and privately.
Practical Psychoanalysis: The Patient/Therapist Relationship and Dreams
Presenter: Hindie M. Klein, PsyD
The second part of this two part series on Practical Psychoanalysis will focus on the relationship between the analyst and the patient and on Dreams. Each of these phenomena are critical to the analytic process. Issues to be explored in Part 2 will include:
*The therapeutic alliance, both real and transferential--How the patient/ analyst relationship develops during the analysis
* The Transference/Countertransference matrix--the intricate conscious and unconscious interweaving of the patient's transference and the therapists countertransference and how they impact each other.
*The use of dreams, "the royal road to the Unconscious"; how therapists can listen to and interpret the patient's dream. Dreams will be examined from both a psychoanalytic and neuroscience perspective.
Ample time will be provided for clinical examples and for questions and discussion.
