“How Analysts Understand and Work With Change in the Analytic Situation”
Steven Rosenbloom M.A.
McClure Lobby Conference Room
This presentation will examine how analysts work with change in ongoing psychoanalytic therapies. Mr. Rosenbloom will offer clinical vignettes to demonstrate that clinicians may not have sufficient understanding of how to conceptualize change, how to impart information to patients beginning treatment, and how to monitor change in their everyday work. He will discuss these issues in the light of the emerging literature on"what analysts actually do" in their consulting rooms (works of Tuckett, Canestri, Fonagy).
Mr. Rosenbloom is a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Canadian Institute of Psychoanalysis, Quebec English Branch, and is currently the President of the Canadian Psychoanalytic Society. He has published papers on Analytic Identity: International Journal of Psychoanalysis (1992), The Complexities and Pitfalls of Working with the Countertransference: Psychoanalytic Quarterly (1998), The Development of the Work Ego in the Beginning Analyst: Thoughts on Identity Formation of the Psychoanalyst: International Journal of Psycho-Analysis (1992), Analytic Style, Character, and the Psychoanalytic Process: Canadian Journal of Psychoanalysis (1997) & Analyst self disclosure, Context and Countertransference: Canadian Journal of Psychoanalysis (2000).
