Events

There are three vehicles for learning through OSPS:  Seminars, a course titled Foundations in Psychoanalytic Thought, and Study Groups.  In the left hand column below you will find a listing of our monthly seminars.  Speakers come from all over the country as well as locally to discuss a myriad of analytic ideas.  We offer CEUs for these events and they vary in length from 2 to 5 hours. 

Our course in Foundations in Psychoanalytic Thought is an intensive survey course covering Freud, Object Relations, and relational theories.  It starts in late August or early September and ends in May and meets on Friday afternoons from 1-4.  This is a very popular course and we encourage you to get more details in the right hand column. 

Study Groups are a fun way to learn about a specific topic.  Typically study groups are short term and cover a topic the faculty is interested in but we also have a few study groups that are longer term and cover a subject in great depth.  Occassionally we will start a study group to correspond with a speaker's presentation at one of our seminars.  If you are interested in a particular subject and would like OSPS to start a study group on that topic, please contact Sharon Neuwald at sharon.neuwald@cox.net.

We hope you will find a spot in one or more of these areas of OSPS that feels like a professional home.

9:00am to 10:30am Presentation

Jacob and the Angel

Dr. Koch will present his graduation paper which discusses psychoanalytic attitudes that are embodied in our psychoanalytic theories. He will discuss relational attitudes including radical hope, collaboration, and dealing with conflicting attitudes between analyst and patient with clinical vignettes that illustrate each. By making psychoanalytic attitudes explicit, a hunger for positive integrative experience is likely to emerge. The story of Jacob and the Angel is used as a metaphor of engagement whereas each might have differing attitudes, the relationship can result in mutual benefits in the therapeutic alliance.
