The Psychoanalytic Training Institute of The Contemporary Freudian
Mini-Course on Analytic Listening
This seminar explores the process of analytic listening through the study and discussion of clinical vignettes from the participants, leaders, or published papers. In addition we will bring in a poem(s) as a way of accessing listening from an imaginative and associative perspective. The quality of attention we bring to literature can be applied to our work with patients. Three senior analysts from the PTI of the Contemporary Freudian Society will work with the group, finding ways to open our minds and deepen our listening. Our intention is to promote an opening of the therapist's thinking as well as the material of the patient. Most importantly the analytic attitude of a safe confidential place for learning together will be maintained as we increase capacity to listen.
This course will involve six consecutive 1–1/2 hours sessions meeting on a monthly basis, and we encourage you to attend all six sessions.
Location: Bethesda, MD or Washington, DC—whichever is more convenient.
Dates: Fourth Wednesdays of each month, February through July: 2/27, 3/27, 4/24, 5/22, 6/26, and 7/24/2013.
Time: 8:00 - 9:30pm

We are also interested in meeting with small groups of people who are considering analytic training. If you would be interested in a casual meeting to discuss issues such as how to combine family and training, how to build an analytic practice, how to integrate training into an existing practice, and/or any other questions that you may have, please contact one of us.
As you further consider psychoanalytic training, we hope that you will feel comfortable contacting any of us. And we do hope to see you at some of the above events.
