COMPLEX AND CREATIVE
The Technique of Interpretation in Couple Psychoanalysis
NCSPP and PCPG (Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Group) are pleased to announce the 10th Anniversary of our Annual Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Lecture. This year, we are honored to host esteemed couple psychoanalyst from Tavistock Relationships, Mary Morgan, who will be focusing on technique in psychoanalytic couple psychotherapy. She will be addressing the complexities of what is meant by a “couple interpretation” and what can go wrong, including “incorrect” interpretations, problems with the timing of interpretations, and those involving unprocessed countertransference enactments. A particular focus will be given to the triangular nature of couple therapy and the way the therapist can move between the different relationships in the room, while holding a “couple state of mind.” Other kinds of interpretations will also be addressed, including those to the transference, countertransference, the couple’s projective system, unconscious beliefs, phantasy, symbols, and dreams. Following the presentation, Shelley Nathans will serve as interlocutor in conversation with Mary Morgan and Ortal Kirson-Trilling will present a clinical case to Mary Morgan in the afternoon.
Please join us at the end of the day for a wine and cheese celebration of our 10th anniversary!
