Scientific Workshop - The Place of Freud’s Dream-Work in Contemporary Psychoanalysis

Presenter: Josh Levy
presented by tps&i - Toronto Psychoanalytic Society & Institute

Discussant: Active Audience Participation
Saturday, December 1, 2018: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
(1 hour break)
Cost: $175 (includes lunch)

Open to Members, Affiliates/Guests, TIP Candidates, and ATPPP Trainees. Preregistration is required.

In 1925 Freud added a lengthy footnote to The Interpretation of Dreams in which he asserted that the dream-work was the “essence of dreaming” (p.506-507). In this workshop we will examine and compare how an Ego Psychologist, a Kleinian, a Self-Psychologist and a Relational Analyst, conceptualize and utilize the operations of the dream-work in clinical psychoanalysis. In their clinical work these four analysts either accept Freud’s conceptualization of the dream-work, modify it or reject it. This will provide us with an opportunity to study, in a clinically meaningful way, the question of continuity and discontinuity in contemporary psychoanalysis.
Learning Objectives:

At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

Studying how the divergent analytic perspectives understand the place of the dream-work in working with their patients’ dreams.
Learning to make comparisons between divergent analytic perspectives with respect to their use of the dream-work.
Raising questions as to whether the process of studying and comparing analytic perspectives on the dream-work would be of benefit to your practice of psychoanalysis.

* Relevant references on four perspectives will be sent to the participants prior to the workshop.
