Finding Unconscious Fantasy in Narrative, Body Pain and Trauma

One Session Program (3 Contact Hours)

Presenters: Paula Ellman, Carolyn Ellman, Nancy Goodman, Janice Lieberman, Batya Monder, and Arlene Kramer Richards
Date: Sunday, December 3, 2017
Location: Mt. Sinai’s Goldwurm Auditorium, Madison Ave @ 98th St, NYC
Time: 1:00-4:00pm

Nancy Goodman and Paula Ellman chair the two parts of this program introducing discoveries from their new book, Finding Unconscious Fantasy in Narrative, Trauma, and Body Pain: A Clinical Guide (publisher, Routledge 2017. The presentations by contributors in the book demonstrate the way Trauma and Body Pain join and interweave with Narrative in discovering dimensions of unconscious life causing pain and conflict for patients.  Emphasis is on the processes involved to make contact with the patient and with unconscious fantasies appearing as scenes in the “theater of the mind”. Contributors to the book present close process material with patients where body pain and trauma mix with unconscious fantasy.   Throughout these explorations of “finding unconscious fantasy” the interplay of transference and countertransference is focal as enactments evolve to uncover the unsymbolized traumatic mind along with fantasy narratives. Learning how therapeutic work progresses to uncover unconscious fantasy will benefit all psychoanalytic therapists who wish to know more about the psychoanalytic dialogue especially when trauma occupies the mind.

Nancy Goodman: Introduction – Part I

Nancy Goodman: The “Finding Theater” A Schema for Finding Unconscious Fantasy

Janice Lieberman: “Not Quite a Princess”: A Clinical Case

Trauma, Unconscious Phantasy and Reparation: A Clinical Reflection from Freud to Klein – SATURDAY AND SUNDAY

Two Session Program (9 Contact Hours)

Presenters: Donna Bassin, Ani Buk, Franco De Masi, Carolyn Ellman, Paula Ellman, Judith Felton, Susan Finkelstein, Nancy Goodman, Richard Gartner, Eva Kantor, Richard Lasky, Marion Oliner, Vivian Pender, Kirkland Vaughans, and Heinz Weiss
Dates: Saturday, February 3 and Sunday, February 4, 2018
Location: New York Psychoanalytic Institute, 247 East 82nd Street, NYC
Time: 2/3/18 – 9:00am-5:00pm; 2/4/18 – 10:00am-2:00pm

The complex interplay, both intrapsychic and interpersonal between Trauma, Unconscious Phantasy, and Manic Repair vs Reparation have been considered since 1895 by Sigmund Freud and further advanced by Melanie Klein’s theory of the Depressive Position. Contemporary Freudian and Kleinian psychoanalysts have studied and exchanged with this focus in ongoing discussions. Both enduring and renewed interest in times when traumatic life events persist, this focus warrants continued study and exchange.

With trauma, the psychic space is foreclosed. Often, the depth of mind is inaccessible as unsymbolized affects make for concreteness. The body becomes the vehicle for expression. Repetitions of trauma and the presence of psychosomatics provide openings for the unveiling of unconscious phantasy, allowing for a process of symbolization and reparation.

This conference brings together psychoanalysts from Germany, Italy and USA to consider the historical evolution from 1895 to 2018 of the understanding of and working with trauma, embodiment and unconscious fantasy.

Sponsored by The Contemporary Freudian Society, Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research and Sigmund Freud Institute, Stuttgart, Germany
