A Group of 14-16 psychoanalysts will use a brief history and verbatim material prepared by a presenting analyst from the opening sessions and from two later points in a psychoanalysis. Within the timeframe of ten-twelve hours, led by a Moderator and with summaries by a Reporter, the group looks closely at what happens to the analyst, the patient, and the analytic couple in order to refine clinical observation and communication.
The Three Level Model for Observing Patients’ Transformations was developed by the IPA Committee on Clinical Observation to assess change in psychoanalysis. This methodology seeks to acknowledge the richness of clinical experience by considering multiple dimensions of psychic functioning. The workshop creates a space to share theoretical approaches in a respectful way that provides the opportunity for the clarification of concepts through reference to the shared clinical material.
Using the model’s format and questions as a basis for discussion of the clinical material, transformations in the patient’s psychic functioning and in the analytic process are observed: a method that allows psychoanalysts to identify more precisely what changes have and have not (or not yet) occurred.
At the end of this presentation participants will be able to:
- Work with a clinical history and verbatim material from three or four sessions to observe what happens to the analyst, the patient, and the analytic couple in order to refine clinical observation and communication.
- Acknowledge the richness of clinical experience by considering multiple dimensions of psychic functioning, sharing theoretical approaches in a respectful way that provides the opportunity for the clarification of concepts through reference to the shared clinical material.
- Use the model’s format and questions as a basis for discussion of changes in the patient’s psychic functioning, and thus to identify more precisely what changes have, and have not (or not yet) occurred in the patient and the analytic process.
