    PRESENTATION

    Is homelessness an expression of breakdown — as is commonly believed — or is it a defense against breakdown? This presentation challenges the common assumption that treatments derived from psychoanalytic theories are appropriate only for people of means. On the contrary, working with underserved populations goes back to the very beginnings of psychoanalysis. Dr. Luepnitz will describe IFA (Insight For All), which she launched in 2005 -- a program that connects analysts willing to work pro bono with homeless and formerly homeless adults in Philadelphia. Clinical material will be presented, which will make use of concepts both from Donald Winnicott  (e.g. the holding environment, the use of countertransference, "fear of breakdown") and Jacques Lacan (e.g. the paternal metaphor, the three registers, the family até).



    PRESENTER

    Deborah Anna Luepnitz, Ph.D. was on the Clinical Faculty of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine for over 30 years.  She is currently on the faculty of IRPP--Institute for Relational Psychoanalysis of Philadelphia. She is the author of The Family Interpreted: Psychoanalysis,  Feminism and Family Therapy --published in 1992-- as well as  Schopenhauer's Porcupines: Five Stories of Psychotherapy  which has been translated into seven languages. She was also a contributing author to the Cambridge Companion to Lacan. In 2005, Dr. Luepnitz launched I.F.A. (Insight For All) a pro bono project connecting psychoanalysts with homeless and formerly homeless adults in Philadelphia. In 2013, she received the Distinguished Educator award from the International Forum for Psychoanalytic Education.



    OBJECTIVES

    Participants will be able to:

    1) Identify 3 different psychological types of homelessness.

    2) Describe one of the basic challenges of treating individuals who are living  with staff in a residence for homeless adults.

    3) Cite 2 concepts from Winnicott and one from Lacan that could be helpful in working with homeless patients.


    *Learning assessments will be emailed to participants for CE credits

    PRESENTER

    James E. Gorney, Ph.D. is in independent practice in Knoxville, Tennessee.  A graduate of the William Alanson White Institute for Psychoanalysis in New York, he is the author of numerous presentations and papers on Winnicott, Lacan, self-psychology and innovations in psychoanalytic technique.  Dr. Gorney served on the staff of the Austen Riggs Center and has taught at New York Hospital-Cornell, Duquesne University, and the University of Tennessee.  He is past president of the Appalachian Psychoanalytic Society and has been a recipient of the Hans Strupp Award for excellence in psychoanalytic education.

     

    The purpose of this conference is to explicate the profound, original illuminations of trauma and psychosis contained within History Beyond Trauma by Francoise Davoine and Jean-Max Gaudilliere. Over the course of this ambitious volume these psychoanalysts integrate 30 years of clinical and theoretical research on psychotic experience.

    Drawing upon their studies in philosophy and classics and experience as professors of sociology, the authors approach madness not as a symptom, pathology, or diagnosis in a manual, but rather as a Place. This is the Place where the Symbolic Order which guarantees an individual’s connection to language, history, and social relations has ruptured, exploded or disappeared. Consequently, one of the most important insights found in this work is that the psychotic is engaged in a research investigation into the nature and history of this Place; he or she is a seeker.

    The authors radically locate psychosis within a social and historical field. Within psychotherapy the therapist is second in command to the patient – the Principal Investigator – who desperately attempts to articulate an unspeakable dimension of trauma and catastrophe, which has come to be foreclosed in individual or social history. Drawing upon their own memories, as well as their European identities, the authors develop a model of trauma rooted in the paradigm of war; the psychotic patient thus brings a war zone into the consulting room. Ultimately, principles derived from war psychiatry are employed as salient clinical tools in approaching trauma and madness.

    Each of Davoine’s and Gaudilliere’s major theoretical concepts will be here illustrated via vivid clinical material. It will be the intention of this Symposium to communicate the propositions of History Beyond Trauma with great clarity, and to demonstrate their broad relevance for those engaged in the investigation and treatment of psychosis.
