The 2021 Winter Academic Lecture
Freud (1919) noted that the wide scale application of psychoanalysis as a therapy “will compel us to alloy the pure gold of analysis with the copper of direct suggestion." He continued, “whatever form this psychotherapy for the people may take, its most effective ingredients remain those borrowed from psychoanalysis” (p. 168). Ever since, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy have been uneasy bedfellows, similar yet distinguished even as their distinctions over the years have blurred.
Listening to Deepening Analytic Work
Contemporary psychoanalysis offers a rich and transformative therapeutic tool to alleviate suffering. Please join us virtually to hear a BPSI candidate present their deepening work to a senior analyst which will offer a lens into the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis. There will be ample time for questions and discussion about the clinical process and about the presenter’s experience as a candidate in analytic training.
