Resonant Tuning Forks: Countertransference, Applied Poetry, and Accessing the Inner Life (Psychodynamics) of Organizations

"This seminar is divided into two parts: a presentation (with plenty of interaction with group participants) and a workshop that follows." ... "Thus, the presentation sets the stage for the workshop that is, I hope, a very dynamic, creative, emergent process of group interaction, and in turn, interpretation, insight, explanation, and healing of organizational life." - Dr. Stein

Needed Relationships, The Forward Edge, and the Transformation of Traumatized States

Dr. Steven Stern will present his richly integrative clinical approach organized around the principle of co-creating needed relationships uniquely with each of our patients. His model is deeply rooted in self psychology and intersubjective systems theory, but is equally grounded in neighboring theories, including Winnicottian, Bionian and relational theories, a non-linear dynamic systems perspective, and especially Louis Sander’s developmental process principles. At the center of Stern’s approach is the idea of “meeting the patient” – a process which, paradoxically, requires the full complexity of multiple psychoanalytic theories and frames of reference (vertices) in order to provide the “simply human” responses our patients need from us.

Dr. Stern will begin with an overview of the major elements of his model, interspersing theory with illustrative clinical material. He will then present an extended clinical example — a challenging case in which the nature of what was needed only emerged over a long period of time.

This conference aims to stimulate our capacity to develop, integrate and hold in mind a range of theoretical models while remaining open and curious to discover the unique path of growth for each of our patients.
