White Society Colloquium: Sandra Buechler
The William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis & Psychology cordially invites you to the William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Society 2012-2013 Colloquium Series:
Sandra Buechler, Ph.D.: My Personal Interpersonalism
How does believing we are "more human than otherwise" affect our behavior in sessions? More broadly, how can our analytic forebears still influence and inspire us? Dr. Buechler will discuss her way of integrating what she took away from her training with her subsequent clinical experiences. In addition to exploring the impact of her teachers on how she focuses in sessions, she will comment on the evolution of a personal, or signature therapeutic style. She is especially interested in how each of us can fashion a personal version of interpersonalism, and make the tradition our own.
Speaker: Sandra Buechler, Ph.D., is a Training and Supervising Analyst at the William Alanson White Institute. In addition to many papers on emotions and psychoanalysis, she has written Clinical Values: Emotions that Guide Psychoanalytic Treatment, (2004), and Making a Difference in Patients' Lives, (2008), which won the Gradiva award. Her new book, Still Practicing: The Heartaches and Joys of a Clinical Career (2012) examines some sources of shame, sorrow, and resilience at various stages of a clinical career.
Discussant: John O'Leary, Ph.D., is on the Faculty and is a Supervisor of Psychotherapy at the William Alanson White Institute. He is part-time staff at Columbia Presbyterian where he treats severely depressed people. He is in full time private practice.
