Reflections on Klein's Radical Notion of Phantasy and its Implications for Analytic Practice
Free For Members & NYPSI Students
Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Presenter: Rachel Blass, Ph.D.
Analysts may incorporate many of Melanie Klein’s important contributions (e.g., on preoedipal dynamics, envy, and projective identification) without transforming their basic analytic approach. In this lecture I argue that adopting the Kleinian notion of unconscious phantasy is transformative. This notion of phantasy is grounded in Freud’s thinking and draws out something that is essential to his work. At the same it involves a radical change that defines Kleinian thinking and practice and significantly impacts the analyst’s basic clinical approach. This impact and its technical implications in the analytic situation will be illustrated and discussed.
This event is supported by a grant from the IPA CAPSA Fund.
