Relational psychoanalysts seek to locate their personal impact on the patient in clinical psychoanalysis. One aspect of this impact has to do with the interaction of the cultural and racial identity of patient and analyst. Through lecture and discussion Dr. Altman will address the impact of racial and cultural identity on analyst and patient and most particularly on transference and countertransference. He will emphasize how the analysis of cultural and racial interaction is essential to the analysis of transference and countertransference. A particular focus will be the blind spots that can occur when the analyst is white and the patient is not. This presentation will draw on clinical experiences of the presenter and the audience participants.
After attending the program in its entirety, attendees will be able to:
1. Define culture from a psychoanalytic perspective.
2. Define race from a psychoanalytic perspective
3. Define “whiteness” as a racial and cultural category
4. Identify 3 ways that race effects transference and countertransference.
5. Identify 3 ways that culture effects transference and countertransference.
6. Identify the cultural location of psychoanalysis
