    Seminar Series for

    Early Career and Student Members

    Freud: A Whole Climate of Opinion

    Instructor: Ted Ellenhorn, Ph.D., ABPP

    Tuesday evenings

    September 14, 21, 28

    8:00 - 9:30pm

    Via Zoom (the link will be sent by Dr. Ellenhorn prior to the first session)

    This series is free of charge.

    The course will begin with a description of the arc of Freud’s writings, delineating the four major phases of his work. We will then explore the key concepts in Freud’s writings on psychoanalysis – the things that make something “psychoanalytic”. The readings (which will be distributed a month prior to the first session) will be used primarily as an exposure to Freud’s style and voice. We will use the readings to feel the texture of Freud’s approach, habit of thought, and manner of communication. Textual exegesis will not be expected, given the time available. We will look at Freud’s work from the perspective of Freud’s work. All subsequent courses are, in one way or another, a critique of Freud.

    Dr. Ellenhorn is a graduate of Pitzer College. He received his MA in School Psychology and Ph.D. in Combined Clinical/Research Psychology in 1989 at the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, Adelphi University. Dr. Ellenhorn is graduate and faculty, Massachusetts Institute and Society for Psychoanalysis, and is a Core Faculty member at Antioch University New England  in the doctoral program in clinical psychology. He is on the Board of Directors, American Board and Academy of Psychoanalysis, American Board of Professional Psychology, where he serves as Secretary, Co-Chair of the Diversity and Social Justice Committee, Diversity Representative to ABPP Board of Trustees, and Website Coordinator. He is Chair, Psychoanalytic Specialty Council, and Representative to the Council on Specialties in Professional Psychology. For Division 39, APA, he is on the Education and Training Committee. Dr. Ellenhorn is the Faculty Coordinator for the Antioch Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology, as well as the Psychoanalytic Society for Your Dreams.

    The Early Career Committee of the Connecticut Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology is pleased to host an Early Career & Student Roundtable Discussion for BIPOC Members:

    What Does it Mean to be a BIPOC Mental Health Provider and be in a Psychoanalytic World?

    Maria Elena Oliva, Ph.D., LCSW

    Saturday, October 9 & October 23, 2021


    Psychoanalysis has been late to the conversation when it comes to including voices of color and the clinical and theoretical concerns of the BIPOC community. In the past number of years, however, the psychoanalytic literature has begun to highlight what it means to be Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Asian and to be someone who thinks psychoanalytically (e.g., Holmes, D.E., 2016; Kafka, 2013; Powell, 2017; Suchet, 2007). This roundtable discussion, designed for BIPOC Early Career and Student members of CSPP, is meant to be a forum to discuss these concerns. Such questions as, “What does it mean to be BIPOC and have membership in psychoanalytic organizations? What does psychoanalytic theory have to offer people of color? How can we bring these theories to our current mental health crisis as we work with our clients of color? How can I find a leadership role in psychoanalytic organizations?” will be on the table for discussion. Join us for this lively and timely forum in an exclusively BIPOC space. The discussion will be facilitated by senior and seasoned CSPP member, Dr. Maria Elena Oliva.

    This meeting is designed for BIPOC Early Career and Student Membership of CSPP and is free of charge. Registration can be found on the CSPP website at www.cspponline.org.

     A link to this Zoom meeting will be sent to all registrants.

    CSPP Seminar Series for

    Early Career and Student Members

    Object Relations Theory

    Instructor: William Hartman, Ph.D.

    Wednesday evenings

    October 13, 20, 27

    7:00 - 8:30 pm

    Via Zoom (the link will be sent prior to the first session)

    This series is free of charge; maximum participants is 10.

    The course will review the work of three major theorists who created the foundations for Object Relations Theory: Melanie Klein, Ronald Fairbairn, and Donald Winnicott. Each class will cover their main contributions and how these contribute to our day-to-day clinical work.

    Dr. Bill Hartman is a clinical psychologist who maintains a private practice for adults, children, couples, and supervision. He has served in a staff position at the Weill Cornell Psychiatry New York-Presbyterian Westchester Behavioral Health Center, in both The Children’s Outpatient Day Hospital and the Inpatient units, including additional time in the Adult Inpatient Unit.  He has had extensive training in family systems therapies.  Dr. Hartman also completed his psychoanalytic training at the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (WCSPP) in 1983.  He has participated in reading groups with both Stephen Mitchell and Lew Aron, preeminent leaders in the field of contemporary psychoanalysis. Since 1988 he has been on the faculty at WCSPP, where he teaches British Object Relations Theory.

    “Exploring PDM2: Bringing Depth to Diagnosis”

    Larry M. Rosenberg, Ph.D.

    Saturday, October 30 & November 6

    10:30am - 12:00pm

    These seminars will address the distinctions between the PDM2 and the DSM-V, as well as the ways in which they are complimentary. More specifically, basing diagnoses solely on what is measurable and observable is helpful for research purposes, but often lacks utility for clinicians providing psychotherapy for patients. Participants in this seminar will become familiar with the philosophy that underlies the PDM2, and ways in which it assists in case formulation and meaning in diagnosis.

    Dr Larry Rosenberg is a licensed clinical psychologist. For many years he was the Clinical Director of The Child Guidance Clinic of Stamford, where he supervised many clinicians and interns. He is also the Past President of Section II, Division 39 of the American Psychological Association. In addition to maintaining a private practice, Dr. Rosenberg serves as Adjunct Faculty at the Postgraduate Program, Derner School of Psychology at Adelphi University.

    This meeting is designed for the Early Career and Student Membership of CSPP and is free of charge. Registration can be found on the CSPP website at www.cspponline.org.
