PSYCHOANALYTIC OBJECT RELATIONS CONSULTATION GROUP: Meets Monday from 1:45 - 3 pm in Palo Alto. Are you curious about how to work analytically? Whether you meet with patients once a week or multiple times a week, face to face or on the couch, you can think analytically by understanding the concepts of transference/countertransference, the unconscious and the frame.

NARRATIONS AND TRANSLATIONS: A psychoanalytic consultation group. The characters, real or imagined, that populate a patient's life come alive in our consulting rooms. The stories they tell -- of past and present, fear, fantasy, and desire -- play out in transference, counter-transference, displacements, dreams, and enactments. This ongoing group will focus on listening at multiple levels to how patients tell us their story; understanding how, when, and why we say what we say to patients; and interpreting the impact of these interventions. We'll discuss cases that members bring to the group, occasionally adding relevant readings from various theoretical perspectives. This group is specifically designed to develop and expand ways of thinking and working psychoanalytically, and to support and encourage each participant's unique voice. Palo Alto, Tuesdays, 11:00-12:15, beginning April 5, 2011. Cia Foreman, Ph.D., Member and Faculty SFCP. (650) 322-3204.
