    THE PROGRAM

    Individuals living with psychosis are in continual danger of being misunderstood or even deemed incommunicable.  As a result, many people view psychosis as an untreatable condition with talk therapy.  In this day-long program, the Philadelphia Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology (PSPP) is proud to have a series of notable clinicians from around the United States present their experiences of conducting psychoanalysis with people experiencing psychosis.  Clinical material, literature, and dreams will be used to explore ways in which we can listen to individuals “who may yearn to speak, but cannot find the words to convey their most vital experiences.”  The following central clinical issues will be explored: How do clinicians “receive language that sometimes sounds incoherent or eccentric with respect to ordinary, unstated norms of speaking?  What does it take, on the part of the listener, to receive the psychotic subject as a subject” who knows something vital about their own experience?  Finally, we will consider how to “listen to someone after a crisis in ways that open up conversations as spaces of exploration and discovery, surprise, and sometimes laughter.” (Rogers, 2016)

    Based around a keynote address from the groundbreaking clinical work of Annie Rogers, Ph.D., from Amherst, MA, clinical psychologist, psychoanalyst and author of A Shining Affliction (Penguin Viking, 1995), The Unsayable (Random House, 2006), and most recently, Incandescent Alphabets: Psychosis and the Enigma of Language (Karnac, 2016), we will learn how to listen, in order to understand the subjective worlds and words of psychosis.  Commentary from Philadelphia analyst Cécile McKenna, Psy.D., will help extend Dr. Rodgers’ observations into our everyday practice and allow us to consider other aspects of working with psychosis.  Afterwards, San Francisco-based psychoanalyst Bret Fimiani, Psy.D., will talk about multidisciplinary aspects of his work treating psychosis in a public clinic.  He will share clinical examples to illustrate the treatment of delusions using dream work.

    Brief Psychoanalysis

    April 9, 2017

    Cécile Gouffrant McKenna, PsyD

    2 CEUs Offered

    In recent years, there has been a demand to develop short-term psychodynamic interventions. This type of treatment—12 weeks or less—might be helpful in solving many of the challenges and demands of our current healthcare system and fast-paced culture. That said, the place of Brief Psychoanalysis has yet to be defined in the psychodynamic movement as well as in more general mental health treatment options.

    This presentation will provide an overview of the current context for Brief Psychoanalysis and a summary of recent studies assessing the effectiveness of short-term vs. long-term psychodynamic therapy. The presenter will also provide a short account on the recent book Brief Psychoanalytic Treatment by R. Peter Hobson, PhD, and describe his six forms of brief psychoanalytic therapy. A clinical case will be shared and our presenter will share the framework she utilizes with brief analysis, inspired by the work of Raul Moncayo, PhD and Ayelet Hirshfeld, PhD.


    Learning Objectives: After attending this program in full, participants will be able to:

    1.    Identify what can be considered brief analysis and define its limits, advantages, and clinical frame.

    2.    Identify the circumstances in which to consider brief analysis.

    3.    Define the key elements of a successful brief analysis treatment.

    Cécile Gouffrant McKenna, PsyD, first trained in France as a cognitive psychologist conducting research on memory, especially with Alzheimer’s patients. After a career in the biotechnology business world, Cécile earned her PsyD at the California Institute of Integral Study in San Francisco, CA.  Cécile is a candidate analyst with the Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis with a private practice in Philadelphia, PA.

    Am I Even Doing Psychotherapy?

    Battling Internalized “psychodynamic phobia” in training environments promoting evidenced-based treatments

    April 23, 2017

    Barbara Goldsmith, PsyD; Valeriya Spektor, PhD; & Elena Cucco, MA

    Please note: this brunch is open to graduate students and all mentees and mentors who have participated in the mentorship program. This brunch offers CEU.

    It is well-known in many graduate clinical psychology programs that myths about psychodynamic treatment continue to prevail despite evidence to the contrary.  Some of the erroneous prevailing myths are that psychodynamic therapies are obsolete and antiquated treatments that are “slow” and based only on insight which does not change behavior or really work. 

    Faculty and students alike continue to believe that psychodynamic treatment is not supported by empirical research and that it has not changed since Freud, and is a treatment only suitable for rich and healthy clients.  Students training in this climate can feel criticized and become defensive and phobic about doing psychodynamic therapy.  This discussion will focus on the status of psychodynamic psychotherapy in graduate clinical psychology programs by examining it from three perspectives: training, supervision and teaching.

    Learning objectives:  After attending this program in full, participants will be able to:

    1.    Identify the negative messages sent from training and professional environments regarding the value of learning about and doing psychodynamic work that contribute to an internalized psychodynamic phobia in trainees.

    2.    Describe the actual research supporting psychodynamic psychotherapy.

    3.    Define ways to navigate and challenge unsupportive training and professional climates and identify activities and network with communities that offer support and guidance in face of negativity regarding psychodynamic work in the field.

    Barbara L. Goldsmith, PsyD, is a clinical psychologist in private practice in Philadelphia and Rosemont, PA. She is adjunct associate professor at the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology and is on the faculty of the Institute for Relational Psychoanalysis in Philadelphia. She is a training consultant for the University of Pennsylvania's Counseling and Psychological Services, and was founding president of the Philadelphia Center for Psychoanalytic Education. She is the director of the PSPP Mentorship Program.

    Valeriya Spektor, PhD, is a post-doctoral fellow at the Counseling and Psychological Services of the University of Pennsylvania. She completed her doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA and her doctoral internship at U Penn's CAPS. Her professional interests center on psychodynamic therapy, training and supervision, and culturally-informed work. She is the Assistant Director of the PSPP Mentorship program this year and is a past participant of the Division 39 Graduate Scholars Program.

    Elena Cucco is a 5th year doctoral candidate in Fairleigh Dickinson University's PhD program in clinical psychology. She is currently training at the Drexel University Counseling Center in Philadelphia, PA where she provides individual and group therapy to a diverse group of graduate and undergraduate students. During her graduate studies, she has been trained in assessment and therapy roles with forensic, inpatient, community mental healthcare, and college counseling center populations.

    Conscious Femininity

    Sunday, May 7, 2017

    Renée Balthrop, PhD

    2 CEUs Offered

    Conscious femininity is a concept developed by Marion Woodman, a Jungian analyst who studied at the C. G. Jung institute in Zurich. After becoming an analyst, she went on to expand Jung’s ideas as they relate to feminine development and mind-body psychology. This presentation is an introduction to her ideas regarding conscious femininity.  Conscious femininity is the embodiment and awareness of living and practicing with a commitment to the feminine principle.  Masculine and feminine principles do not refer to concepts of gender. They are energetic patterns of being, with both the masculine and the feminine present in men as well as in women at all times.  Life is the result of the dynamic interplay of feminine and masculine energies.  In our fast paced, quick fix culture, as well as in the contemporary practice of psychotherapy, the masculine approach is more prevalent and has long been assigned a greater value than the feminine.  From the standpoint of conscious femininity, the feminine principle is not “better” than the masculine, or vice versa.  At this time, we need to make conscious and integrate qualities of the feminine principle in order to compensate for the longstanding dominance of the masculine.  Our intention is to develop a balanced partnership between feminine and masculine principles.

    As clinicians, how many of us have struggled to take a complete history and formulate treatment goals in a single session?  Conscious femininity offers an alternative approach for achieving these objectives.  Predominantly masculine models of psychotherapy focus on goals, symptoms, analysis, interpretation, reason, and action. Psychotherapy grounded in the feminine principle has much to offer masculine oriented theories and begins in an altogether different place:  a place of not knowing, but of experiencing, centered on being as opposed to doing. Using clinical examples and case material this presentation will explore the conscious use of the feminine principle and the role of the masculine in conducting effective psychotherapy. 

    Learning Objectives:

    After attending this program in full, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe what Marion Woodman means by “conscious femininity.”

    2. List reasons why the use of metaphor and symbol are essential in therapeutic work.

    3. Define the stages of feminine development. 


    Renée Balthrop, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in Media, PA. She is in the Fellowship program at the Philadelphia Center of Psychoanalysis. She has studied extensively with Marion Woodman, a Jungian analyst in London, Ontario.

    The Isolation, Safety, and Freedom of Private Practice: Going at it alone in a healthcare system and world that doesn't care

    Sunday, May 21, 2017

    Deborah Seagull, PhD

    2 CEUs Offered

    The choice to be in private practice is an exciting and challenging endeavor. The benefits of schedule freedom, increased financial success, and autonomy are seductive, and real. To own your own space as a therapist gives you full reign to work as you please, and let the work unfold as it needs to. There is psychoanalytic space that can be found and cherished and sought after in private practice, and there are patients who are willing to pay and to do the work. However, this is only one side of private practice, as it can also be a very isolating experience.  

    In this presentation, the speaker will make the argument that most psychoanalytic/ psychodynamic/relational therapists are drawn to private practice for the reasons mentioned above, but also because there is a safety from the outside world, from the trauma we hear about, and a healthcare system and a world that can seem very cruel and unrelenting. It affords us a protection, but at a cost. This presentation will focus at length about this conflict and defense and the common experiences that therapists have in private practice. We will consider ideas and ways that clinicians can think about this in ways that address this conflict and help fight that sense of isolation.  


    Learning Objectives:  

    After attending this program in full, participants will be able to:

    1. Identify common feelings experienced by clinicians and core conflicts that arise as a result of private practice in relation to the content we hear

    2. Define ways clinicians in private practice can build community


    Deborah Seagull, PhD, has been in practice for ten years working at Pennsylvania Hospital and in private practice. She works deeply and compassionately with patients focusing on the underlying issues of many common psychological problems. She works extensively with patients with health issues, especially cancer patients.
