Psychotherapy provides, for both therapist and patient, a potent(ial) space for creative elaboration of desire, with transformational and generative possibilities. Evolving literature significantly aids thinking about erotic transference and countertransference, yet reading alone is not sufficient to work through the clinician’s anxieties and inhibitions about engaging Eros. The problem of being overwhelmed and flustered by erotic feeling is formidable; it is challenging to be able to interpret in the midst of passionate feeling.
How can we first understand and then address our patients so that they are able to really listen to us? Anne Alvarez is an influential psychoanalytic psycho-therapist whose work on autism and severe personality disorders in children and adolescents has been important internationally. NCSPP is honored to bring Anne Alvarez to the Bay Area.
Inspired by Bravo TV’s Inside the Actors Studio, NCSPP’s Pre-licensed Clinicians Committee invites you to the 14th in a series of conversations with senior clinicians in the field of psychoanalytic psychology.
