Presenter(s): Nathaniel Strenger, PsyD
Date/Time: October 20, 2021
Credit Hours: 1.5 Hours
Workshop Description: The time for neighborhood is now. Psychoanalysis, an institution among many, faces a political reckoning. This paper calls for, and moves towards, a renewal of real-life integration in the ways of clinical intervention and localism. Drawing on contemporary psychoanalytic theory, political philosophy, and case studies highlighting political difference, this paper aims to revive a neighborly American public sphere. One session at a time.
1) Summarize the role psychoanalysis has played in diminishing American neighborliness, and see the potential for restorative contribution it currently wields.
2) Integrate psychoanalytic and political lenses, using these to situate clinical work socially.
3) Draw on psychoanalytically oriented postures to promote neighborliness as a crucial element in any model of health.
