Invites you to attend our first meeting:
“Exploring the Use & Misuse of Race in the Clinical Encounter” Presenter: Narendra Keval, London
Invited Discussant: Marsha Levy-Warren Date & Time: Saturday October 27, 2018 from 10am to 2:30pm
Location: 465 Henry Street, Brooklyn 11231
Preoccupations about differences due to ethnicity, race or racism and their lived experience are always present in subtle ways in the privacy of our daily thoughts and feelings, imagination and dreams. Our clinical encounters are no exception, but they need close and sensitive scrutiny to capture the nuances of what is being grappled with and communicated by our patients and to enable clinicians to respond with affective understanding of the unconscious processes present.
Areas of racial difference are often evident in the passions of the transference. They can be communicated with a sense of curiosity that signals a wish to explore the self in relation to others. On the other hand, racial issues can evoke a wish to thwart and damage others, closing down any possibilities for intimacy with and learning from others. These thoughts, feelings and the phantasies associated with them tell us something about the quality of thinking at any given moment in the session. This event will use an experiential work discussion format for learning about some of these processes.
