PIECE OF MIND
A PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR THE PEOPLE: TOWARD A PROGRESSIVE PSYCHOANALYSIS
The Psychotherapy Institute presents our 40th anniversary fall symposium with featured speaker, Lewis Aron, Ph.D. and discussant, Mary Tennes, Ph.D.
Saturday, November 10, 2012
9 AM - 3 PM (registration and continental breakfast at 8:30 AM)
Lunch is included.
In this presentation, Lewis Aron will present a cultural history focusing on how psychoanalysis has always defined itself in relation to an "other." Tracing reverberations of racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia, Aron will show that psychoanalysis, associated with phallic masculinity, penetration, heterosexuality, autonomy, and culture, was defined in opposition to suggestion and psychotherapy. Aron deconstructs these dichotomies, leading the way for a return to Freud's progressive vision, in which psychoanalysis, defined broadly and flexibly, is revitalized for a new era.
