This will be an interactive presentation devoted to how we discuss our experiences of and resistances to thinking and talking about difference. How do we experience difference in the analytic dyad? How do we frame it? How ready are we to look inward? What are our resistances as individuals and as a field? How do we deal with a lack of openness to curiosity? What are the resistances to curiosity regarding difference? What is the reluctance to allowing curiosity to develop in analysis? Although the conversation about diversity and race has evolved in some quarters toward issues of "cultural competence" and knowledge, it is our position that a productive psychoanalytic frame would involve a persistent exploration of how we experience curiosity – or its inhibition – in approaching matters of race, difference, and otherness.
