OPEN HOUSE LUNCHEON & CLINICAL PRESENTATION FOR THOSE CONSIDERING POSTGRADUATE TRAINING
Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 1:00 PM –2:30 PM
RACISM IN THE CLINICAL SETTING
For the past 25 years, psychoanalysts have increasingly addressed the unconscious dynamics underpinning racist states of mind. Dr. Reynoso challenges us to acknowledge the ubiquity of unconscious organizing principles based on racial hatred in even the most politically liberal of minds. The pragmatic efficiency of racist templates enables us to defend against the ever-present threat of intolerable anxieties in all individuals. Dr. Reynoso will use this framework to discuss clinical material in the psychoanalytic treatments of both children and adults. Specific attention will be given to ways of attending to and processing one’s countertransference to access projected malevolent self and object representations. This presentation will be clinically-driven and aim to help clinicians, even those just contemplating training, increase their competency to identify and make use of racially-framed aggression in their clinical practice.
Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to 1) identify how covert and implicit forms of racism get expressed in unconscious self-object representational dyads, 2) use object relations concepts to explain how racist states of mind can serve to protect against primitive anxieties in both the clinician and patient, 3) give examples of different technical interventions that can be used to work with internal racist transference-countertransference configurations.
