Description: This presentation considers the relational psychoanalytic ideal—its implications for our therapeutic goals, our patients and for ourselves. Who do we as relational analysts aim to be in the consulting room? How do we view our patient—her potential and her limitations? What are the clinical goals of a relational analysis? And what might those goals occlude? Addressing the value and excesses of the relational ideal, participants will be invited to explore both sides—what relational thinking brings to the consulting room in tandem with the ways we may have gone too far.
The presentation is appropriate for clinicians of all levels who are interested in contemporary psychoanalytic thinking. A paper will be read, followed by audience discussion.
