Our Difficulties With Otherness:
Cultivating Curiosity in Psychoanalytic Treatment and Organizations

with Anton Hart, PhD, FABP

Saturday, November 4, 2017

Too often, psychoanalysis misses the opportunity to attend to the task of penetrating the surface of otherness. This presentation will examine both the resistances to, and the necessity for, psychoanalytic engagement—and prioritization—of issues of otherness, difference and diversity. Anxieties associated with authentic, curious, exploratory dialogue about difference and diversity are identified. The presenter argues for a stance of curiosity in relation to difference and also for an emphasis on the noticing and learning from those moments where diversity-related communication seems to break down. Attention to such breakdowns is portrayed as crucial to facilitating forms of dialogue that can lead to more diverse—and diversely applied—psychoanalysis.

Educational Objectives:  At the conclusion of this program participants will be able to:
1. to grasp the major thrust of Lacan’s thesis that “love is giving Develop an understanding of the anxieties associated with engaging issues of diversity, difference and otherness.
2. Recognize the central role of curiosity as an antidote to cultural ignorance and insensitivity and be able to cultivate such curiosity in themselves and in their patients.
3. Recognize pitfalls and breakdowns that can occur in diversity-related explorations and find ways to use these in the service of the restoration of open, constructive dialogue.
