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.

February 8 - Back to basics: What do psychoanalysts (think they) know? A contemporary introduction

posted Jan 13, 2017, 10:16 AM by CFPS Information

HPS Presents: Back to basics: What do psychoanalysts (think they) know?

Presented by Gregory Graham, M.D.

Wednesday, February 8, 2017  |  7:00-9:00PM 
7:00 Networking | 7:30 Presentation (1.5 CEUs)

The Council on Recovery - Houston
303 Jackson Hill St
Houston, TX 77007

This event is free and open to the public.
Free parking on the north side of the building.


In the spirit of this year’s theme for the Psychoanalytic Society’s
scientific meetings “back to basics.” Dr. Graham will present a personal
narrative of some fundamental vertices of clinical knowledge which have
been highlighted in psychoanalytic models of the mind developed during
the twentieth century. Newer approaches drawing on Bion’s thought and
contemporary Field Theory will be introduced as representing ways in
which analysts are now exploring the clinical usefulness of considering
“how thinking comes into being” in contrast to “interpreting what we know.”
Clinical examples will be presented to illustrate developments in the field.

Objectives: 
  1. To become familiar with some basic models of contemporary psychoanalytic thinking
  2. To understand how the focus of psychoanalytic practice is changing
  3. To develop a sense of how suspended judgment, metaphor and reverie play a role in psychoanalytic practice today


Presenter: 
Gregory D. Graham, MD is currently a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies, Houston and a Clinical 
Professor of Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine. He studied modern European Philosophy as an undergraduate at the University of
California, Santa Cruz and received his MD degree from the University of Erlangen Nuremberg in Germany. He completed a residency in 
psychiatry and did psychoanalytic training in Houston. He has served as a clinician, educator, consultant, supervisor and writer nationally 
and internationally for over 30 years. He maintains a busy clinical practice in Houston. His long-standing interests range from the subtleties 
of psychotherapy and religion, psychosomatic medicine and comparative psychoanalytic models of the mind to the careful consideration 
of developmentally supportive and/or restorative “therapeutic” approaches to trouble experienced on the horizons of dreaming, thinking, 
creativity and communication. Recently he has been exploring how knowing, truth, responsibility and thinking itself first appear in the 
inner world, develop or go awry. Experiences too unfamiliar, unformed or affectively energized to hold in mind, experiences that have been 
intolerable or too dangerous to share and experiences that are prevented from joining a “conversation in mutuality” are central in this field of 
interest.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of American Psychoanalytic Association and The Center for Psychoanalytic Studies.

      HPS Presents: Does my Dog Love me?: Thoughts on attachment relationships across species. 

      Almost 140 million Americans share their homes with a dog, yet this important relationship is seldom explored from a psychoanalytic perspective. In this presentation, we will apply what we have learned from infant attachment behavior in our relationship with our dogs, and from cognitive and behavioral zoology in our dog’s relationship with us.

      Objectives: 
      1. We will describe the attitude, body language, receptivity and reciprocity between the human “mother” and her puppy “infant.” 
      2. We will differentiate the early attachment bond with “mother” and the development of the "pack" relationship. 
      3. We will see how the early attachment relationship with “mother” develops and informs the mature dog’s personality and behavior. 
      4. We will explore how healthy and balanced relationships are developed and maintained between the 2 species.
