February 2, 2020 Psychoanalysis Now: A Socio-Political Exploration
Presenters: Daniel Polyak, MA & Diana Gil Velez, MS, LCAT
Moderator: Beverly Schneider, MSW, LCSW
Panelists will consider how the sociopolitical impacts psychoanalysis as an institution, a clinical practice, and a body of knowledge. Some of the issues that will be discussed include: psychoanalysis’s disavowed class problem; the ways in which the intersectional issues of class, race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and nationality construct and limit psychoanalytic training; and how analysts can develop creative ways to make psychoanalysis accessible to diverse populations.
Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
- To learn about the evolution of Freud’s thinking on the accessibility of psychoanalysis (from pre-WWI to post WWI)
- To explore whom psychoanalysis is currently for in 2020
- To explore ways in which psychoanalysis can rise up to meet the challenges of the next 10+ years.
