Presenter: Luis H. Ripoll, M.D.
Discussants: Donnel Stern, Ph.D. and Ed Nersessian, M.D.
**OPEN ONLY TO NYPSI MEMBERS AND NYPSI STUDENTS**
Dr. Ripoll will present a brief history and process material from an ongoing analysis of a young adult. This will be followed by a dialogue with two discussants. Drs. Donnel Stern and Edward Nersessian will each offer contrasting views on the case, based on their differing theoretical and technical perspectives. In particular, they will explore questions related to the mode of therapeutic action in psychoanalysis, how the stance of the analyst affects his ability to analyze the transference-countertransference field, and specific ways in which psychoanalysis can free an analysand to be more curious about his mind and how he relates to others. The format is intended to open up a discussion with the audience to consider how one might speculate about an analytic case, and how speculation may be helpful, dangerous, or both.
