UNCONSCIOUS COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THERAPIST AND PATIENT
All the material presented in this year’s colloquia similarly foreshadows a potential paradigm shift in psychoanalytic theorizing about the nature of consciousness itself.
This evening runs from 8:00-9:30 PM/EST
In this talk, Tony Bass will consider the ways that bi-directional unconscious communication (the dialogue of unconsciouses that constitutes psychoanalytic work) is a central feature of our daily life with our patients and our therapists, and the root of the sense of the uncanniness of human relations that are integral to the sense of what it is like to be in an analytic relationship. The absence of such feelings may constitute an impasse, or obstacle, or sense of deadness in the transference/countertransference field. We will consider how therapist and patient can find their way back to life by making use of their imaginations, their curiosity and other forms of access to the life of the unconscious.
