Important Notice About PANY Events

For current 2022-2023 Academic Year: 

We continue holding our events virtually through the end of the 2022-2023 academic year.

 

For the upcoming 2023-2024 Academic Year we anticipate returning to in-person for all programs and events; and offering hybrid (virtual and in-person combined) for our currently enrolled advanced training program candidates (Psychoanalytic and Psychotherapy).

 

We are guided by our parent institution (NYU Langone Health), which makes determinations regarding safety restrictions in times of public health emergencies, based upon state and federal guidance, and public health best practcies. When NYU Langone Health imposes masking and capacity restrictions, we hold all programming virtually.  If necessary due to worsening pandemic conditions, we may again start the impending new academic year as Virtual Learning only. As the 2023-24 academic year approaches, we will provide an update regarding learning conditions.

Midlife Matters

Midlife, the period that spans the "old age of youth" and the "youth of old age," brings new challenges as well as amplifying old conflicts and deficits. This presentation integrates relevant theoretical ideas with cultural and clinical examples of midlife issues. Success or failure at coping with the tasks of this period can mean the difference between negotiating a transition and suffering a crisis.

Presenter: Jason Wheeler, PhD

CME/ CE Credits Available: 1.5

About the Speaker(s)

Jason Wheeler, PhD is on the faculty of PANY and teaches on Freud and sexuality and gender in the Psychotherapy and Psychoanalytic programs. He is also active in writing and editing and is a member of the editorial board of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly.

About the Presentation

Midlife, the period that spans the "old age of youth" and the "youth of old age," brings new challenges as well as amplifying old conflicts and deficits. Success or failure at coping with the tasks of this period can mean the difference between negotiating a transition and suffering a crisis. This talk will present core ideas about midlife as a developmental period drawing on the work of Erikson, with some brief clinical examples. Then we will watch and discuss several clips from a recent film, Logan, that illustrates some of these issues in dramatic form. 

Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:
  1. Anticipate and recognize typical midlife problems.
  2. Conceptualize relevant conflicts and deficits.
  3. Focus treatment for successful negotiation of midlife tasks.

OPEN HOUSE

PSYCHOANALYTIC TRAINING POGRAM

Open House | Saturday March 4

Location: PANY, 1 Park Ave, 8th Floor

Join us for a case presentation and discussion. There will be a Q&A where representatives from the Outreach Committee and PANY Faculty will be available for questions. Lunch will be served.

 

Presenter: Sameer Khan, MD 

About the Presentation

Join us for a case presentation and discussion of a man who suffered from a dramatic split between his inner self and his real life functioning. The result was a veneer of a normal, even exemplary character, camouflaging a darker, impulsive yet paradoxically freer side.

We will use a psychoanalytic object relations approach, including Winnicott’s concept of the False Self, to understand the patient’s dynamics. Session material will provide an opportunity to discuss how this theoretical approach can inform effective interventions. The goal of this presentation is to increase participants’ knowledge in clinical work with this challenging patient population.

There will be a Q&A where representatives from the Outreach Committee and PANY Faculty will be available for questions. Lunch will be served.

Psychic Bisexuality

This talk will attempt to throw some light on the contemporary use of the concept of bisexuality in one analyst’s clinical work.

CME/ CE Credits Available: 1.5

About the Speaker(s)

Rajiv Gulati, MD is a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Psychoanalytic Association of New York. A native of New Delhi, he has a strong interest in the ways in which culture inflects the experience of selfhood, cropping up as well in the normative discourses that seek to police gender identity and sexual orientation. He co-edited the book, “EROTICISM: Developmental, Cultural, and Clinical Realm,” with Dr. Salman Akhtar. Dr. Gulati maintains a private analytic practice in Brooklyn. 

About the Presentation

Freud came up with the idea of “psychic bisexuality” in the context of his intensely erotic relationship with Wilhelm Fliess. Despite its central place in Freud’s theory and its usefulness, bisexuality occupies a controversial place in psychoanalysis. It has been a beacon for sexual and gender minorities and yet within psychoanalysis it has been put to heteronormative and transphobic use. This talk will attempt to throw some light on the contemporary use of the concept of bisexuality in one analyst’s clinical work.

Learning Objectives
1. Participants will understand Freud’s biological view of bisexuality as contrasted with his intrapsychic perspective.
2. Participants will understand Corbett’s use of “the anxiety of regulation” in response to erotic desires and gender expressions that fall outside of the hetero-cisgender binary.
3. Participants will understand the implicit heteronormativity/cisgenderism in many binary psychoanalytic constructions of gender – i.e., “orthodox” Freudian, Kleinian, Lacanian

Couples Therapy Skills for the Dynamically Trained Clinician

It can be daunting for clinicians who work primarily with individuals to conduct therapy sessions with couples. Part of the challenge is shifting the focus of the clinical work from the dynamic mind of the individual to the dynamic created by the couple. In this presentation, we will review concepts from both psychoanalytic and systemic perspectives to better understand that shift, and to help clinicians gain confidence in their work with couples.

Presenter: Susan Resek, LCSW

CME/CE Credits Available: 1.5
