While the internal position of “no memory and no desire” (and also no understanding) is a well known Bionian dictum of technique, the notion of curiosity is rarely discussed in the psychoanalytic literature. What actually is curiosity? How is curiosity connected to the position of no memory, no desire and no understanding? Can they go together, or are they contradictory in nature? Can we develop curiosity, or is it something “we either have or not”? The above questions are highly relevant for the clinician but not less essential for the organizational consultant working from a psychoanalytic-systemic approach. In the workshop these notions and questions will be explored both conceptually and experientially.
NOTE: Dr. Nutkevitch is also available the week of June 11, 2018 for supervision meetings in organizational consultation – individually or in small groups – if arranged in advance. Please Contact Dr. Nutkevitch directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Teaching and Learning Method:
The workshop will consist of a lecture and discussion, as well as experiential work in plenary and small groups.

2. Participants will gain insight into the experience of “curiosity” and of the internal states interfering with “curiosity”.
3. Participants will learn about ways to continue develop their capacity for being in a position of “no memory, no desire and no understanding” as well as “curiosity”, in their roles as organizational consultants and clinicians.
