The Challenge of Containment: A Psychoanalytic-Systemic perspective.
Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Workshop with Avi Nutkevitch, PhD.
CE Credits Available — LCSW and LP
Bion states that containment “is perhaps the most important mechanism employed by the practicing psychoanalyst.” I believe that the challenge of containment is highly important not only for the psychoanalyst, but in any role, such as a manager, a consultant, the chair of a committee, a teacher and obviously for a parent. Moreover, the notion of containment is relevant not only with regard to an individual in his/her role but for organizational entities such as managements and boards.The workshop format will weave together a lecture and group discussion with experiential work in small groups around containment as a way to combine personal, experiential and conceptual learning.
