THE 22nd ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
ON THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE SELF

SELF PSYCHOLOGY REFLECTS
ON ITS CORE CONCEPTS

Dear Colleague,

The 22nd Annual International Conference on The Psychology of The Self will be held at the Hilton Hotel in the center of beautiful downtown Toronto, October 28-31, 1999, a time of falling autumn leaves, crisp clear days and cool nights. A direct flight from most U.S. and European cities, Toronto is familiar but different, elegant but inexpensive, and, above all warmly welcoming of colleagues from all over the world who share our interest in the exciting growth of Self Psychology.

It is timely for self psychology to reassess its central ideas, the concepts which bring us together as analysts and therapists. Three Plenary Sessions comprise the main body of the conference in which the essential elements of self psychology will be reviewed from clinical and theoretical perspectives. Panel I: The Narcissistic Patient Revisited, a case presentation and two formal discussions, re-examines the clinical challenges addressed by Kohut. How has current Self Psychology theory and practice evolved from Kohut's initial contributions? In Panel II: Forms of Intersubjectivity and Infant Research and Adult Treatment: Toward a Theory of Interaction for Psychoanalysis, the diverse clinical and developmental concepts embraced by the term intersubjectivity are critically reviewed. A new theory of analytic interaction is proposed, one derived from infant research, clinical observations, and our newly acquired understanding of the interchange of procedurally encoded information. Panel III: Where is the Self in Self Psychology Today?, proposes a revision in the conception of the self based on infant research along with affect and cognitive theory. The case material from Panel I is used to illustrate the theoretical ideas in Panels II and III.

The Kohut Memorial Lecture Words and Music will be presented by Frank Lachmann on Saturday. Original Paper Sessions, scheduled to take place on Saturday and Sunday, will feature wide ranging topics of interest presented in intimate group sessions with ample opportunity for discussion by all participants. A special series on Religion and Spirituality has been included in this part of the program.

The Pre-Conference Program offers a range of educational opportunities. The traditional Introductory Course introduces newcomers to self psychology through didactic and clinical presentations on Thursday evening and Friday morning. The Advanced Course will enrich experienced clinicians with a Thursday evening panel, Dissociation, Trauma and the Therapeutic Process, and, on Friday morning, Master Classes will provide clinical discussions led by experienced Self Psychologists. In addition, the Pre-Conference Program offers workshops on Child and Family Treatment, and a Literary Rendition of a Severe Self-Disorder. An additional optional program takes place on Thursday afternoon with workshops on Optimal Responsiveness, Group Psychotherapy and Improvisation and the Therapeutic Exchange.

We believe that the 22nd Annual Conference offers unique opportunities for the continuing education needs of mental health workers, including psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family counselors, etc. We hope you will join us.

OPTIONAL PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS

Thursday, October 28, 1999
1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

OPTIONAL WORKSHOPS

Workshops A, B and C are offered simultaneously and may be taken before the Pre-Conference Courses:

 

Optional Workshop A

The Spontaneous Self of the Analyst: Exercises in Improvisation

There is a close relationship between the creative spontaneity required in the analytic session and that which occurs in a two-person dramatic improvisation. The goal of this workshop is to explore the potential value of improvisational techniques as a way of expanding the analyst's repertoire of responsiveness.

Co-Leaders:
Arthur A. Gray, PhD
Rosalind C. Kindler, MFA

 

Optional Workshop B

MEET THE AUTHORS: Self Experiences in Group: Intersubjective and Self Psychological Pathways to Human Understanding

The panelists will address the universal need for a group object through the use of the model scene, differentiating between archaic and mature twinship in group, the notion of the self as a group and group as a self from the group analytic tradition, the need to examine early childhood multiple cross-cultural selfobject and traumatic experiences and the utilization of a co-therapy model in creating optimal group environments.

Author & Co-Editor:
Irene Harwood, PhD (co-editor with Malcolm Pines, MD)

Co-Authors:
Sigmund W. Karterud, MD, PhD

Optimal Responsiveness: The Application of Specificity Theory in Relational Self Psychology - Part I

This is a 3-session workshop (Part II, Saturday, October 30; Part III, Sunday, October 31). Theoretical and clinical material will be presented in the first session. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own clinical experience during the course of the workshop.

Participants will be expected to attend all 3 workshops to enable in-depth participation in the discussions.
