September 9, 2020, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

with Anton Hart, PhD, and Beverly J. Stoute, MD

Presented by the NCP Committee on Diversities and Sociocultural Issues 

This event will take place online via Zoom. Once you register, you will receive an email with the link and more information.

*** Registration will close at 4:00 PM the evening before the event. No registrations are possible after this time.

This candidate and student workshop is part of Drs. Hart and Stoute's Zoom visit with us titled "Otherness as a Psychoanalytic Subject: Race, Culture, Class, and Difference in the Clinical Encounter.

How do we begin to recognize and process racial difference in the treatment situation as we become aware of our conscious and unconscious biases when working with patients? How do we begin to make psychoanalysis a discipline that inquires into issues of race from the very beginning? If psychoanalysis seeks to cultivate curiosity, in both the analysand and the analyst, might we recognize racism and bias as developmental failures of curiosity? And how might the psychoanalytic process seek to address racism and other forms of discrimination?

Learning Objectives
As a result of attending this session, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the technical challenges of how issues pertaining to racial difference arise in the clinical situation.
  • Utilize psychoanalytic principles to understand working with race in the psychoanalytic situation. 
  • List three ways to cultivate curiosity pertaining to issues of race in the clinical situation.
