Lee Jaffe, Ph.D, newly elected president of APsaA, will join us as the featured speaker in April. The hotel is right on the Metro redline, the azaleas will be in bloom, and there is never a better time to visit the capital city.
Dr. Jaffe will work with us on how we engage in analytic listening, arrive at diagnosis and conceptualize the various modes of therapeutic action.
He will present a complete treatment of a woman with a crippling amount of envy and castration anxiety. He will explore how to think about of trauma and institutional conflict. What are the differences and similarities between a psychoanalytic and a DSM diagnosis for patients with trauma-based illness? How do we think about cohesion, connection and diversity in the healthy organization? Dr. Jaffe will use clinical and administrative illustrations to expand our thinking into these significant areas.
Having studied and published on supervision, Dr. Jaffe will conduct a live consultation, open to all, to show how taking a second look can broaden and deepen the clinician's appreciation for the dynamics of the case.
Topics of Dr. Jaffe's presentations will include:
Psychoanalytic and DSM Diagnoses in Trauma
Penis Envy? Narrative of a Treatment
Deconstructing Underlying Theories and Therapeutic Action
Cohesion, Connection and Diversity in the Healthy Organization
The conference will include lectures, case presentations, large and small group discussions, and a dinner on Saturday night.
