Les groupes de discussion

 

Les Groupes de discussion sur des questions cliniques et l’intégration conceptuelle sont une nouveauté de ce Congrès ; ces petits groupes seront l’occasion de discussions approfondies qui dureront entre deux et six heures, parfois précédées d’un panel.  Quand vous achetez vos billets pour le Congrès, il vous sera demandé à quel groupe de discussion vous souhaitez vous joindre.

Groupes de travail – résumés

 

Observation clinique des transformations du patient

Nous travaillerons avec du matériel clinique en mettant l’accent sur les transformations du patient au cours du processus analytique (transformation positive, négative ou absence de transformation) et en nous servant de certaines dimensions du Modèle à 3 niveaux pour observer ces transformations. Nous  observerons à partir d’un point d’ancrage donné et à des moments de transformation choisis la manifestation des processus conscients et inconscients du patient, notamment le transfert et le contre-transfert eu égard à un ou plusieurs aspects de la complexité des transformations.

Panel (jeudi, 1er août (de 11h à 16h avec une pause pour le déjeuner) se poursuivant en petits groupes  le vendredi 2 août (de 14h à 18h avec une pause-café), et se terminant le samedi 3 août (de 16h30 à 18h30 avec une pause-café)

 

Beyond pluralism – searching for a theory of unconscious phantasy

Unconscious phantasy is one of the main concepts in psychoanalysis, well founded in clinical reality. But we find very diverging theoretical positions to unconscious phantasy and its role in treatment. In the Work Groups we will work on an in-depth-comparison of the different conceptualisations using an approach the Project Committee on Conceptual Integration has developed. This will help the participants to improve their own reflection on their implicit use of psychoanalytic concepts in practice.

Panel Session (Friday, 2 August (11:00 to 12:30) then continuing in small groups on Friday, 2 August (14:00 to 18:00 with coffee-break)

 

L’agressivité dans différentes théories psychanalytiques: travailler à l’intégration conceptuelle (Aggression across different psycho-analytic theories)

This group will be chaired by members of the Toronto Work Group on Conceptual Integration.  A member of this group will first present some of the work of the group, in looking at different theories of aggression.  We hope to then have a lively discussion at two levels:  1. the different conceptualizations of aggression, their usefulness, and their clinical testability, 2. the methodology of this kind of conceptual comparison and integration.

Small group sessions on Thursday, 1 August (14:00 to 16:00), then continuing on Friday 2 August (16:30 to 18:30), concluding on Saturday, 3 August (16:30 to 18:30).

 

Re-Thinking some of the Fundamental Tenets of Psychoanalytic Theory

In psychoanalytic theory, to some degree irrespective of differing schools, we continue to rely on hypothesis formulated by Freud in the late 19th  / early 20th century tied to the neurophysiology of that time. A review of some of these hypotheses, such as the pleasure-unpleasure principle, dynamic unconscious, signal anxiety, libido, aggressive drive, in light of current neuroscience is in order. Two of these hypotheses will be chosen for an in-depth discussion and re-evaluation.

Small group sessions on Thursday, 1 August (14:00 to 16:00), then continuing on Friday 2 August (16:30 to 18:30).

 

Free Association

The purpose of this Work Group is to study Free Association as a monadic and dyadic process in life and psychoanalysis, as method of healing and research. We will aim to define the technique of Free Association, its clinical and epistemological status, its relation to various theories of pathogenesis: aggression, sexuality, dreams, fantasies, enactments, conflict, defence and transference.

Small group sessions on Thursday, 1 August (14:00 to 16:00), then continuing on Friday 2 August (16:30 to 18:30), concluding on Saturday, 3 August (16:30 to 18:30).

 

Pensar los límites

La investigación se centra en las presentaciones clínicas actuales y en nuestra observación de que las principales teorías posfreudianas no dan cuenta de la complejidad del fenómeno clínico. A partir de ahí exploramos, con una particular metodología , la obra freudiana. Esto nos llevó a repensarla y a revisitarla. Ahí encontramos notables escotomizaciones de su obra que nos llamaron poderosamente la atención. Deseamos plantear en esta presentación parte de esta investigación en desarrollo, en particular en relación al concepto del “yo”.

Small group sessions on Friday 2 August (14:00 to 16:00).

 

Splitting: Different psychoanalytic uses of the concept and their implications for theory and practice

This group will study the diverse meanings of the concept of splitting in analytic discourse, all of which may be traced back to Freud. Reflection on these meanings and the fact that a single concept is used in such varied ways, will allow for a deeper understanding of the foundations of analytic theory and practice and of differences between analytic schools (e.g., in regard to their notions of mind, phantasy, external reality and unity).

Small group sessions on Friday 2 August (16:30 to 18:30).

 

Contemporary Freudian Perspectives

The development of the work group forum at the Contemporary Freudian Society will be described, with its use of clinical process, readings, and an attempt to formulate a methodology to better understand events of self-disclosure and their meaning.  Clinical process will be presented to provide an opportunity for the group to discuss the use of self-disclosure as furthering or disrupting the analytic process.

Small group sessions on Friday 2 August (16:30 to 18:30).

 

Investigación del concepto de Inconsciente hasta la 1º tópica freudiana / Investigation of the Concept of the Unconscious up to the First Freudian Topic 

Nuestra investigación se centra en el concepto de inconsciente desde el inicio de la obra freudiana (incluye escritos prepsicoanalíticos.) Referentes: versión castellana de Amorrortu,  inglesa de Strachey, cotejándolas con la Gesammelte Werke. Esperamos recuperar los diluidos conceptos freudianos. Este rescate producirá: a) una revaloración de la técnica (asociación libre y atención flotante) a través de las palabras del paciente. b) un nuevo impulso a la clínica.

c) la renovación teórica de sus fundamentos.

One repeated small group session: Friday, 2 August (16:30 to 18:30), run again on Saturday, 3 August (16:30 to 18:30). You may choose to attend either one of these sessions.
