Upcoming conferences


January 29th, 2022 , 9 – 1:15pm, Newport Psychoanalytic Institute

Presenter: Kathryn J. Zerbe, MD, FABP, FAED, is Training and Supervising Analyst, Oregon Psychoanalytic Institute and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Oregon Health Sciences University.

The body-mind relationship is receiving new attention in psychodynamic clinical work in the 21st century. In this presentation we will focus on the treatment of eating disorder patients as a key example of how the clinician addresses both the body and the mind in therapy. The countertransference impact on the therapist of treating a group of patients who keep secrets and the role this plays in the development of somatic (body) countertransference therapist will be demonstrated in clinical case examples. Emphasis will be placed on the therapist’s self-care and resilience when working with challenging and often refractory patients.

Social Psychoanalysis and an Ethic of Repair

Presenters: Dr. Lynne Layton, Dr. Medria Connolly, and Dr. Bryan Nichols

March 5th, 2022, 9-4pm, Newport Psychoanalytic Institute

The program begins with a talk on what a social psychoanalysis might look like in the clinic and draws on some earlier psychoanalysts’ concepts that have connected the social world and the psychic world without reducing one to the other. Exploring identity formation in cultural contexts and within various power hierarchies, Dr. Layton introduces the concept of normative unconscious processes, a concept connecting the psychic and the social that specifically addresses the ways that racism, heterosexism, classism and other social inequalities are unconsciously enacted in the clinic and culture. We will then explore how therapists can resist unconsciously replicating such cultural inequalities.
