Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis — Love & Hate in Contemporary Clinical Practice

November 25, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


























The Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis presents “Love & Hate in Contemporary Clinical Practice” with guest presenters Lewis Aron, Ph.D. and Galit Atlas, Ph.D on Saturday November 25th at 10am.

The workshop schedule (from the TICP event page) can be found below:

“MORNING: The Enigma of Desire
Presented by Galit Atlas, Ph.D.

Galit Atlas discusses the subjects of sex and desire and explores the Enigmatic and the Pragmatic aspects of sexuality, longing, sexual inhibition and creativity. She will present narratives, therapeutic tales which illustrate both the analyst’s and patient’s erotic desires and anxieties, and the ways these interact and emerge in the consulting room.

AFTERNOON: Fluctuations of Identity and Shifting Self-States: The Dramatic Dialogues of Harold Searles
Presented by Lewis Aron, Ph.D.

Lewis Aron will explore therapists’ fluctuations in identity and self-states, and their “dramatization” with patients, including expressions of “hate in the countertransference.” He will focus on the clinical contributions of Harold Searles, an innovative master clinician who was a forerunner of contemporary relational work. Videos of Searles clinical interviews will be used to facilitate discussion.”

The registration fee is $180 for members, $190 for non-members, and $120 for students. Early bird prices are available until November 10th. Register for the workshop online.
