Thursday, August 24th, 2017- Moonlight (2016)- August Film Series

posted Aug 21, 2017, 12:02 PM by Houston Psychoanalytic Society

Thursday, August 24, 2017 @ 7PM
Watch: Moonlight (2016)
Synopsis: The 2017 Oscar recipient for best picture is a gorgeously rendered, paradigm breaking film made by a black writer, director, and cast. This coming-of-age story portrays the excruciating struggle of an emotionally abused boy named Chiron growing up with his crack-addicted mother, and without a father, in the projects outside Miami in the 1980’s. What saves Chiron may be his childhood connection to the local drug dealer, Juan, who is internalized as a paternal figure and a loving, internalized attachment.
Followed by: Barbara Mosbacher, PhD, a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst in private practice in Houston. She is a past president of the Houston Psychoanalytic Society and is currently on the faculty of the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies.  She is a member of the American Psychoanalytic Association, the International Psychoanalytical Association, and the Chinese American Psychoanalytic Alliance.

This presentation will begin with tracing the history of the psychoanalytic home office setting from Freud’s in Vienna, which clearly had implications for the developing theory of psychoanalysis, through current commentary on home offices. The emphasis will be on the intimate qualities of bodily experience for both analyst/therapist and patients when the physical space is obviously related to the therapist’s non-analytic life and on themes that intimacy underscores. Recent controversies as to the seductive quality of home office settings will be reviewed with an eye towards appreciating the different and additional experiences that seeing patients in one’s home inevitably evoke in both members of the therapeutic dyad. Clinical material will highlight heightened embodied and enacted themes, especially those related to spaces other than the consulting room – e.g., doorways and their related views, waiting area furnishings, the bathroom - as well as the additional potential countertransferential pressures brought to bear when seeing patients in one’s home.This is an intermediate-level presentation, and Dr. Ainslie will read portions of her paper to the audience.

OBJECTIVES
  1. To understand legal considerations in establishing a home office for the practice of psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis.
  2. To understand ethical considerations for the establishment of a home office for the practice of psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis.
  3. To consider potential transferential and counter transferential implications of the home office, especially as they relate to the body.

April 8th Ethics Workshop Psychoanalysis as an Ethical Praxis

Ethical discourse, as conceived of by the ancient Greeks, addresses the question: what is the right way to live as a human being?  The answer we give depends upon what we understand a human being to be, and what it is in human life that we find to be of value.  I will argue that inherent in psychoanalytic discourse are answers to these very questions.  As such, psychoanalysis by its very nature constitutes an ethical discourse and an ethical praxis.  Turning to the psychoanalytic literature, I will examine how the Fundamental Rule of free association, the efforts to make the unconscious conscious and the analyst’s responsibility to safeguard the place of the other, the space of difference within the treatment constitute the pillars of a psychoanalytic ethics.

OBJECTIVES
1. Participants will be able to identify the ways in which psychoanalytic discourse constitutes an ethical praxis.
2. Participants will be able to explain how the Fundamental Rule grounds a psychoanalytic ethics based on the commitment to pursue the individual’s truth.
3. Participants will be able to discuss how psychoanalytic responsibility towards an otherness that can never be fully known grounds the ethics of the relationship of analyst to patient.

The human body is beautiful to behold.  It is awesome,  inspiring and whole.  Yet, as clinicians we see people whose body/minds have been in harms way for long periods of time; sometimes a lifetime. Explicit processes are the bedrock of language, thought, and cognitive learning. Implicit processes drive emotional learning, form the bedrock of relational patterns and serve as the affective core for a sense of self.  This process operates beneath conscious awareness in automatic, immediate, and effortless ways. Intuition provides raw data for conscious deliberation to follow-up, seek feedback and discernment.  The emotionally charged areas between explicit and implicit experience are ripe for change, can be witness in the body, and is the focus of our didactic and experiential movement work together.
Please wear comfortable clothing, as this an experiential as well as theoretical presentation. 

OBJECTIVES
1. To experience explicit and implicit processes.
2. To define and experience the Jungian concept of the Complex.
3. To define and experience Authentic Movement Processes.
