In this 60 minute webinar, participants will learn about responses to traumatic stress with a focus on resilience. The American Psychological Association defines resilience as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats and even significant sources of stress…” This session will review psychosocial and neurobiological factors that have been associated with resilience.

The impact of reduced social contact on mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic has been identified as a major public health concern. While personality factors such as attachment style have been associated with psychological distress during the pandemic, the longitudinal relevance of these factors and the role of daily social contact in mitigating distress remains poorly understood.

This lecture will focus on the seldom-addressed therapeutic dyad in which social privilege favors the patient. Through her matrix of relative privilege, Malin Fors will discuss how social power issues are inevitably negotiated in the therapeutic setting and how this process plays out in transference, countertransference, and resistance.

In this talk, Mitchell Wilson, MD, considers the concept and economic fact of property in relation to the training and practice of psychoanalysts. The principle of ownership, and the legal system that has been built up around it ("private property") has broad influences, from the physical places in which we practice to the words we utter in conversation with patients. Through the lens of property, issues of race and class as they relate to psychoanalytic work can be more easily discerned.

David Levit, PhD, ABPP, SEP, speaks about interweaving principles and approaches from a somatically based trauma therapy, Somatic Experiencing (SE), into psychoanalytic treatment. He focuses on patients with severe early traumas who are chronically vulnerable to states of catastrophic dissociative dissolution.

In this lecture Neil Altman, PhD, will look at race and the critical role it plays in society and in clinical practice. Much of the effort going into racial consciousness-raising for people who identify as white rests on the notion of unearned “white privilege.” Altman looks deeply into this idea, along with associated concepts of guilt, power, and identity. He suggests that there are embedded assumptions therein that perpetuate the very racially prejudicial ways of thinking that are purportedly being dismantled.

Race as a lens through which we achieve psychoanalytic understanding is not universally valued or adopted in institutional psychoanalysis. There is either -or-ism-either we are psychoanalysts who stay true to our traditions, or we threaten, weaken, dilute, or confuse the identity by errantly venturing into the social realm. Because of this persistent bifurcation, there is no widely accepted set of standards regarding race in psychoanalysis: for study in institutes, for professional practice, for scholarly inquiry, for admission and retention, or for career progression.

Psychoanalytic therapy is an evidence-based treatment. Effect sizes are as large as those of other therapies that are actively promoted as “empirically supported” and “evidence-based,” and patients who receive psychoanalytic therapy not only maintain therapeutic gains but continue improving after treatment ends. Research also shows that other forms of therapy may be effective largely because the more skilled practitioners incorporate (often unacknowledged) psychodynamic methods.

The presentation is based on the recently published book entitled Toward a Unified Psychoanalytic Theory: Foundation in a Revised and Expanded Ego Psychology. The main themes of the presentation are: demonstrating that revised and expanded ego psychotherapy constitutes the strongest foundation for (1) a unified psychoanalytic theory; (2) is best able to integrate relevant findings from other disciplines; (3) provides a more accurate account of the nature of psychopathology; (4) serves to better identify the nature of positive therapeutic outcome.
