    WHERE:  Zoom 
     
    COST:  FREE

    BACKGROUND: 

    On Juneteenth 2023, the Holmes Commission on Racial Equality in American Psychoanalysis released their final report. The Holmes Commission on Racial Equality (CO-REAP) was established within the American Psychoanalytic Association on recommendation of the Black Psychoanalysts Speak national organization. CO-REAP’s purpose is to identify and to find remedies for apparent and implicit manifestations of structural racism that may reside within American psychoanalysis. The Final Report is based on the study of American psychoanalytic institutes, training centers and societies within and across different organizational auspices. 
     
    As encouraged by CO-REAP, this Reading Group will provide relational space to study, process, and discuss the Report’s findings and recommendations. The intention of these reading groups is to help our community develop a collective understanding of the implications of this Report as we commit to making psychoanalysis as diverse, equitable, inclusive, open, and vibrant as it can be. 

    Julian Ernst, MSW, LICSW and Nancy Lawroski, PhD, LP will host this monthly group reading of the Report over Zoom. Attendees will participate by reading sections of the report aloud and discussing responses to the text as a group.

    Expanding Psychodynamic Sensibility and Deepening Our Clinical Work with Patients.


    Clinical Case Presentation: Psychoanalytic

    Psychotherapy in China


    March 9, 2024

    Presenter: Hal Steiger


    WHEN: March 9, 2024, 8:30 am arrival, 9 am - 12:30 pm program

    WHERE: MPSI Psychotherapy Center at Semple Mansion Carriage House (in person event only)


    Join us for a “close reading” of several therapy sessions provided by a Chinese Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. We will follow the evolving clinical work, moment by moment and sentence by sentence, as it takes place in a culture quite different from our own.  This is a unique opportunity to appreciate the culturally specific as well as the universal aspects of treatments anchored in a psychodynamic sensibility. 

    This program is sponsored by CrossCurrents, a platform for psychoanalytic learning and exploration, the MPSI Program Committee and the MPSI Psychotherapy Center. CEU Certificates will be available.


    To allow more room for discussion and to deepen our learning, this event will be limited to 22 participants.

    Expanding Psychodynamic Sensibility and Deepening Our Clinical Work with Patients


    The Mission of Crosscurrents is to provide programs highlighting new developments in psychodynamic thinking and practice. We are a joint project of the Minnesota Psychoanalytic Society and MPSI Psychotherapy Center. The name –Crosscurrents– reflects our understanding that human growth and development is constantly moving and ever expanding in scope, complexity, and integration. Unlike a river that flows directionally and follows a deliberate path, we recognize that what we prefer to call a psychodynamic sensibility involves turbulence as new ideas enter the gathering waters of accumulated wisdom that constitutes our psychodynamic history. Crosscurrents is dedicated to presenting programs that explore the creative flow, confluences and inevitable collisions of competing theories and technical approaches both within and outside the traditional frame. 

    “The ability to sit with, to contain, to join, to understand and to intervene with such patients is an art form and conjures up a Winnicottian willingness to accompany the patient on a journey into unbearable agony. Doing this kind of work requires courage and a willingness to be open, to be vulnerable and to tolerate not knowing.”


    “A therapist with a psychodynamic sensibility does not need to have experienced the patient's trauma. But they must be willing to open a space within themselves that welcomes the patient's traumatic experience and with it all the traumatic experiences the therapist has personally faced and carries. Patients will not go where we fear to go ourselves.”

    Did Something Just Go South?

    When the Patient Sounds More Defeated by the End of a Session.

    Understanding in the moment, by looking back…or do we just have to wait and see what happens next?


    Saturday, April 13, 2024, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Semple Mansion Carriage House, 104 West Franklin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55404

    In this series, members of the MPSI Community will share clinical experiences that illustrate what can be learned when we look closely at the intimate encounter between therapist and patient.

    Each presenter will have their own topic and approach. We may follow a single session in which the therapist is faced with an urgent situation and needs to decide what to do next. Or we may explore particular challenges such as an unexpected enactment, an affective storm, intense countertransference feelings, dealing with deadness or being stuck or situations where the treatment itself seems at risk of being destroyed. Each Clinical Moments presentation will include discussion and offer opportunities for attendees to share their thoughts and ideas.

    Free for Members of MPSI

    Event Limited to the First 50 Members

    RSVP by Monday, April 8, 2024

    2 CEU’s will be offered
