We will focus on deepening the work and helping each therapist work in their own unique way by being able to hear the narrative derivatives and formulate a silent or spoken response. The core theoretical viewpoint will be based on the analytic concept of the ego-Self axis. We will consider the role of the Self in pulling the ego towards wholeness. This will involve seeing how the narrative derivatives complete what we are saying and what is not being said.
We will work towards learning to hear and formulate a way to speak to patients’ experiences of hope and dread: hope to be accepted and helped on the one hand, while fearing that the painful experiences of prior relationships will be repeated. Addressing these matters helps build trust and can prevent premature terminations.
We will focus on the text of analytic hours presented by seminar members. I will also present my own work to illustrate the concepts and we will do some reading together.
