System of the «Analysis»
The Diversity of Technical Aspects of the Analytical Process.” The issues of setting, mistakes in therapy, transference and countertransference, synchronicity, interpretation and ethical aspects of therapy.
System of the «Analysis»
Year 2 is for System of the Analysis. Together with the seasoned analysts we will start our journey to explore the varieties of the theoretical and practical aspects of the analytic process, parallels in the presented cases and the field of analytical thinking, in general. We will be searching for the connections between the concepts of psychoanalytic schools, thus shaping our own Systems, in which mutual influence is akin to the subtle alignment observed in the Solar system, in our world and inside us.

 Art Historian and Culture expert Andrey Lomonosov (link in bio) will join our meetings to host the lectures on the Solar System and help us examine the images of Mars, Neptune, Venus, Mercury, Pluto and Uranus in art through the lenses of the Greek Pantheon. The Sun is the star we start with, Helios, in September. Carolyn Bates (link in bio) in her seminar will lead us to the core theme in our work – the Ethics of Psychoanalysis.  

For this year - Carolyn Bates, Ph.D., Dr. Dale Mathers MB BS, Giorgio Tricarico, Carrie Disney, Mark Winborn, PhD., Susan E. Schwartz, Ph.D. have confirmed their participation. With James Hollis, Ph.D., and Joseph Cambray, Ph.D., we are currently negotiating about their seminars.
The Labyrinth and the Minotaur: Ethical Issues in the Countertransference
September 2022 года
Carolyn Bates
Jung once described a case that was “not in the least a story of triumph; it is more like a saga of blunders, hesitations, doubts, gropings in the dark, and false clues which in the end took a favourable turn.” (Vol. 16, para 564) How do we understand the role of countertransference in this process? The clinician often only discovers the prima materia of the analysand’s psychic life after aspects of it have been evacuated into the analyst, have taken up residence there – sometimes toxic residence. But it must be discovered to be worked with, for in its non-discovered state, prima material can fuel countertransference enactments. Thus, where countertransference exists, so too does the sphere of mutual unconsciousness. This sphere may sound like a wondrous territory to be explored, when thinking about it theoretically, but it can become a place of havoc in the treatment itself.

This talk is about time. ‘The fifty-minute hour’ is the frame in which clinical work takes place, and a curiosity about the nature of time helps us understand and use the frame to give space for the unconscious to emerge. Philosophy is also part of the frame of analysis, as much as ‘arriving on time, leaving on time’ and all the other housekeeping things we do.

The French philosopher Henri Bergson (1859 – 1941), won the 1927 Nobel Prize for literature. In his time, he was seen as the world’s leading thinker. His ideas about the nature of time and free will preceded and influenced Jung. However, most Jungians are unaware of this, so I will explore these connections.

More well-known is Jung’s long friendship with another Nobel prize winner, the Austrian physicist, Wolfgang Pauli. Together, they developed ideas about synchronicity, an acausal connecting principle. At first, synchronicity can seem strange, mysterious, and almost magical. However, many analysts eventually come to experience it an ordinary part of the natural world. So, though this is not a clinical paper, it looks at concepts foundational to analysis: to allowing space/ time for people to learn to form and use symbols.

In this day’s work we shall explore together some aspects of working intensively over time with those who have suffered extreme and long-term trauma in childhood. How can we BE with the savagery and heartbreak of such experiences?

Стыд: спрятанное чувство и страдание души
February 2023
Julia Ovchinnikova
Стыд – одна из самых часто встречающихся тем в терапии. Однако в психотерапевтических курсах про него упоминают редко. Это скрытое чувство, которое трудно выдерживать в другом и в себе. Оно прячется под разными масками и под видом других эмоций. Про стыд не говорит клиент и молчит терапевт. Стыд может парализовать аналитика с первой сессии, атаковав мышление или сковав тело.

Семинар посвящен исследованию теории, практике и проживанию работы со стыдом. Участники получат навыки работы с переживанием стыда и узнают:

  • Как распознать чувство стыда среди других эмоций,
  • Стыд, связанный с Персоной и Тенью, и стыд, связанный с Самостью,
  • Защитные механизмы, актуализирумые чувством стыда,
  • Как стыд влияет на наше тело,
  • Как проявляется стыд в контрпереносе,
  • Как аутистический барьер стыда влияет на развитие личности,
  • Стыд и травма.
Обучению работе со стыдом важно уделять не меньше внимания, чем обучению работе с негативным переносом, агрессией или конфронтацией. Соприкосновение со стыдом ведет в глубины психики.
