E105F-18. Emotional Writing, the Narrative, and Self-Understanding

Emotional writing is expressive and a writing exercise which helps us to understand and deal with difficult and stressful situations by working through unbearable situations and to learn to work through these issues. Expressive writing can be applied to treat a variety of emotional, health (soma) and cognitive symptoms including anxiety, depression and PTSD. It addresses and includes thoughts, memories and worries. It is a technique to “telling and revealing our most painful story” and divulging unbearable and deep thoughts and feelings, especially shameful ones. The narrative expresses individual’s own thoughts and feelings on their own terms without the intrusion of the “other.” The analyst listens, reads the significant material without interference in the process of “life history” and more self-understanding develops in a safe environment. The narrative approach expresses the personal identity which leads to self-understanding and retreats from active interpretation. It focuses on the individual’s free flowing experience of telling their story.

*E106F-18. Understanding the Repetition Compulsion

In Beyond the Pleasure Principle, Freud associated destiny with the repetition compulsion; he thought that each of us is unconsciously programmed to repeat our fate. We unconsciously repeat distressing and painful situations throughout our life without recognizing our own participation in causing such incidents. He postulated that this was an attempt to master the experience of trauma but also noted that the persistent need for self-defeating behavior was evidence of the working of the death drive in human life.

E107F-18. Psychoanalysis and Hypnosis

Psychoanalysis grew out of hypnosis. In fact, Freud who had been trained in hypnosis in France before developing psychoanalysis, began his psychotherapy practice in Vienna as a therapeutic hypnotist. In those days therapeutic hypnosis was done with the subject lying on a couch. When Freud gave up hypnosis, he repurposed the couch. Let me be presumptuous enough to assert that Freud misunderstood hypnosis. Had he a modern understanding of hypnosis, he would not have abandoned the practice and psychoanalysis today would be very different. In this workshop I want to introduce the participants to the uses of hypnosis in a psychotherapy practice with a particular emphasis on its usefulness for psychoanalysis. No one will quack like a duck, but participants might discover some of the benefits (and fun) of going into a trance.
Limited to four participants. If there are more than four, another workshop will be held on April 6.

E108F-18. What Are Better Ways of Dealing With Complicated Situations or Difficult People

Have you ever been so overwhelmed by what has been related to you that you didn’t know where, or how, to start?

This course may suggest alternative approaches when you are confronted by either challenge.
