IPTAR is proud to honor Dr. Andrew Druck. His contributions to psychoanalytic theory and technique, beginning with early insights into the treatment of borderline patients, have expanded over the years to include considerations of the interplay of unconscious conflict and its developmental context; the relation of theory to technique; the complexity of the analytic relationship, including the role of the analyst in helping patients maintain or develop compromised developmental capacities, and critical comparisons between classical and contemporary Freudian models. Because of his remarkable insight and intellect, Dr. Druck has been in high demand as a supervisor, teacher and mentor for over 30 years! His countless students and supervisees from IPTAR, NYU Postdoc and other institutes, have over the years found his professionalism to be mixed with heartfelt generosity, humility, creativity and humor. If contemporary Freudianism has a beating heart, Andy Druck is there at its center.
Dr. Druck will discuss how, as Freudian psychoanalytic thinking has grown more multifaceted, it has increasingly attended to multiple, previously ignored, but crucial factors in continuous interplay. We are now faced with a new problem: how to focus on one mutative factor while simultaneously attending to others. How do we orient ourselves theoretically and clinically without losing the complexity, ambiguity, and mystery of what makes a psychoanalysis successful? Dr. Druck will begin by giving an overview of the broad contemporary Freudian landscape. He will then discuss various Freudian perspectives through the prism of the interplay of three complementary axes: process/content, repression/internalization, and, virtual/actual time. These three axes help flesh out the core organizing threads around which our clinical and theoretical thinking revolves.
Andrew B. Druck, Ph.D., A.B.P.P., is a Fellow (Training and Supervising Analyst), Past President, former Dean of Training, and faculty member at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR). He is a Clinical Associate Professor of Psychology, faculty member, and supervising analyst at the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. He is a faculty member at the William Alanson White Institute. He is on the editorial board of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly. Dr. Druck is the author of Four Therapeutic Approaches to the Borderline Patient (Aronson, 1989), and coeditor, along with Carolyn Ellman, Norbert Freedman, and Aaron Thaler, of A New Freudian Synthesis (Karnac, 2011). His recent paper, “The Ties That Bind”, was published in Psychoanalytic Dialogues (2018).
