    The Connecticut Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

    Presents a Clinical Conference




    Steven Kuchuk, DSW


    On The Limitations of Love: Desire and Loss in Psychoanalysis


    Saturday September 29, 2018


    10:30 am – 12:30 pm
    The New Haven Lawn Club
    193 Whitney Ave, New Haven

    Lunch will follow for all attendees



    Summary

    In contemporary psychoanalysis, it’s no longer surprising to talk about love for our patients, theirs for us, and what this stirs for each party. But for many clinicians, there is still shame and guilt that makes it difficult to explore and share these aspects of our work. Dr Kuchuk's previous writing in this area focused on the therapeutic action of the therapist’s desire. In this conference, he will present just such an analytic love story. This time though, the telling has less to do with the therapeutic action of this love, and more to do with his concerns about the potential clinical limitations of that very same love.


    Speaker

    Dr Steve Kuchuk is Editor-in-Chief; Psychoanalytic Perspectives,  Co-Editor; Routledge Relational Perspectives Book Series, President, International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP) and Board Member, supervisor, faculty, Co-Director of Curriculum for the psychoanalytic training program at NIP, and faculty/supervisor at the NIP National Training Program, Stephen Mitchell Relational Study Center, the Institute for Relational Psychoanalysis of Philadelphia and other institutes. 


    Dr Kuchuck’s teaching and writing focus primarily on the clinical impact of the therapist’s subjectivity. In 2015 and 2016 he won the Gradiva Award for best psychoanalytic book: Clinical Implications of the Psychoanalyst’s Life Experience: When the Personal Becomes Professionaand The Legacy of Sandor Ferenczi: From Ghost to Ancestor (co-edited with Adrienne Harris).
