Varying Emphases in the Conception of Psychoanalytic Intersubjectivity 

We want to invite you to consider attending one or both of two upcoming presentations sponsored by IRPP ( on Varying Emphases in the Conception of Psychoanalytic Intersubjectivity.

The first speaker we will host, on Saturday, January 25th, is Dr. Bruce Reis, who has recently published Creative Repetition and Intersubjectivity: Contemporary Freudian Explorations of Trauma, Memory, and Clinical Process. On Saturday, February 22, we will host Dr. Jessica Benjamin, who most recent book, published in 2018, is Beyond Doer and Done To: Recognition Theory, Intersubjectivity, and The Third.

You may elect to attend one or both of these Saturday programs. We will send additional information on Jessica Benjamin’s talk as we get closer. For now, we want to share more about the first program in the series, featuring Bruce Reis.

Dr. Reis’s presentation on January, 25th from 10:00-1:00, will show how “analytic technique has radically evolved through developing Freud’s original insights into dreaming and hallucinosis, and how the presentation of today’s analysands calls for analyst’s use of themselves in unprecedented new ways.” Reis offers a conception of intersubjectivity that is not relational, but rather alters and re-imagines contemporary post-Freudian theory. 

The location for the Reis seminar is: 1101 Washington Ave., Lower Level (Common Room), Philadelphia PA. There is street parking, but do not park in the CVS lot.

Bruce Reis, Ph.D., FIPA, is a Fellow and Faculty Member at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, New York, an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor in the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and a member of the Boston Change Process Study Group. He is North American book review editor for the International Journal of Psychoanalysis and serves on the editorial boards of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly and Psychoanalytic Dialogues.
