S019. Why we act: A psychoanalytic exploration of Aristotle’s 7 causes

Aristotle declared that all human action is rooted in one or more of the following causes: Chance, Nature, Compulsion, Habit, Reasoning, Anger, and Desire. His proposition predated Freud’s Pleasure Principle by over 2000 years. We examine how each impulse – and their interrelationship – has come to be understood over 100 years of psychoanalytic inquiry and how to apply Aristotle’s foundational thinking to our practices and lives.

S419. The Plausible Hypothesis: A technique to help people in therapy say everything

One of the most important distinctions between Modern Psychoanalysis and most other approaches to psychoanalysis is the emphasis on whose verbal contribution is more important to help people change. Most of the other schools of thought emphasize what the analyst says: what and how to interpret. The Modern idea is what helps people change is for the person in therapy to say everything with the analyst’s role limited to helping the person who has come to him or her for help to say everything. When I was in training, the most important tool we were taught to help people say everything was the use of joining techniques — what my colleague Jacob Kirman calls agreeing with the patient. After many years of experience, I’ve developed a whole repertory of techniques that I find help the people I work with talk about an ever-expanding range of things. One of these techniques is to tell a story that suggests a new way of looking at the person’s problem — what I call the plausible hypothesis. Sometimes the plausible hypothesis takes the form of a story taken from classical Greek myths, like Freud’s fondness for Oedipus, but it can be anything else, often suggested by the patient’s own frame of reference and sometimes drawn from my own storehouse of knowledge, and can include song lyrics, allusions to popular culture, jokes, historical events, and so forth. In this workshop, I will work with the participants to help them find plausible hypotheses that might help the people in therapy with them find a story that will give them tools to say things that they might not have been able to say without the new hypothesis.

S519. Psychoanalysis and Hypnosis

Psychoanalysis grew out of Sigmund Freud’s training in clinical hypnotherapy, but once the two modalities separated over a century ago there has been very little dialogue between them. Most psychoanalysts think hypnosis is still practiced as it was in Freud’s time, just as most modern hypnotherapists think psychoanalysts haven’t learned anything since Freud died almost eighty years ago. Of course, both modalities have learned a lot in the many decades since they parted, and I believe, they both have a great deal to teach each other. In this workshop, we will explore how psychoanalysis and hypnosis can complement each other. The participants will also have the opportunity to experience hypnosis in a safe and supportive environment so that they can understand — on an emotional level — the power of this unfortunately neglected (by psychoanalysts) modality. No one will cluck like a chicken, 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.
