Program time:

Saturday, November 13th from 3pm to 6:30pm (Pacific Time) via a Zoom meeting

Program description:

Program attendees will witness films of three completely separate, spontaneous, and unrehearsed supervisions of the identical case material offered by Dr. Joana Cruz, a recent ICP graduate. These films had been made shortly before the original IAPSP conference that took place on September 25, 2021. In these three separate, individual films, Dr Cruz presented and discussed this identical process material to three different senior supervisors, one supervisor using a self psychological approach (Dr. Allen Siegel); the second using a relational approach (Dr. Hazel Ipp); and the third a Bionian approach (Dr. Barnet Malin). This unique format allows you, as the audience, to observe and compare how different approaches to supervision affect the same clinical material, altering meaning and understanding of the identical content in each of the three dyads. Observing in vivo the influence of the supervisors‘ particular psychoanalytic approaches, as well as their distinct person-hoods, on the meaning and feeling in the dyad permits you to comprehend the complexity and value that psychoanalytic pluralism adds to our clinical understanding, as well as to perceive the absence of a singular theoretical truth in regard to psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice.

What will distinguish our program from that of IAPSP’s is that all of these participants as well as Dr. Cruz’s ICP supervisor, Dr. Ilene Philipson, will be available to you directly, to address your questions about the entire experience, about how the process of presenting in this way affected all of the participants, as well as questions about the similarities and differences among the theories, and, finally, your own contributions to the dynamics of the case material.
