A seven session monthly seminar - Topics in Psychotherapy: A series for collaborative learning is organized by Rochester Area Group Psychotherapy Society (RAGPS) and will be held Nov 12, 2019 - Jun 09, 2020 at Ann Betz, LCSW, Rochester, New York, United States of America. Description: 11/12/19: Overview of Modern Psychoanalysis Originally developed by Hyman Spotnitz to treat narcisstic disorders, Modern Psychoanalysis focuses on how unexpressed feelings effect the mind. We will discuss basic theoretical concepts and techniques while considering Modern Psychoanalysis as a treatment modality to use with our individual patients and groups in our practice. 12/10/19: Transference and Countertransference The experience of a patient redirecting their feelings about a significant other in their life towards us is imbedded in our daily work as therapists. We will explore the impact this therapeutic process has on both our patients and ourselves. We will discuss identifying transference and explore opportunities to work with this in the treatment. 01/14/20: Projection, projective identification, and enactment These three channels of communication convey information about our patients' emotional states through non-symbolic, unspoken expression of feelings, and are some of the most challenging concepts in analytically informed psychotherapy. We will expand our working knowledge and comfort with these ideas and explore how to attend to them in the treatment. 02/11/20: Treatment resistances Patients come to therapy with the hope of changing something in their lives. However, in all of us are forces that oppose the desire for change despite the powerful motivational element of one's lived misery. We will explore various resistances and how to work with them, as well as the resistances that are stimulated within us, as therapists, in the treatment. 04/14/20: Assessment for readiness for group The group therapist has a responsibility for the wellbeing of the individual patient as well as the wellbeing of the group. Group calls upon the individual to tap into different developmental skills than in individual treatment. We will consider the factors of readiness for a patient entering a newly forming or ongoing group. 05/12/20: Sharing the patient with other care providers One patient might be in individual, couples and/or group treatment simultaneously. We might be the only provider or we might share the patient with another therapist. We will consider how sharing the patient adds additional layers of complexity to the treatment. 06/09/20: Couples treatment and couples group Bringing partners together to work on unresolved conflict and stress in their relationships can at times seem like both a science and an art. We will look at couple's treatment from a Modern Psychoanalytic perspective and discuss the use of couple's group therapy.
