Event: The Third Thing in the Room: Implications of the Relational Turn for Psychotherapy

Speaker: Dr. Ellis Jaruzel, PsyD, LP

Learning Objectives

In recent years (the last 30 or so, but especially the last 15), psychoanalytic thought has been increasingly influenced by relational theory or intersubjective theory. While many psychologies/psychotherapies (including and especially psychoanalysis) have traditionally been “1-person” psychologies where the patient/client presents and the analyst/therapist analyzes and/or targets content or processes “in” the patient/client, the intersubjective turn moves towards “2-person” psychologies where the patient/client and analysist/therapist are in a co-creation of the relational space and the relationship itself is the object of analysis and intervention. Relational Theory and the Practice of Psychotherapy by Wachtel is a good overview of this shift in psychoanalysis and increasingly the wider world of psychotherapy in general. My dissertation work, while on a related but different topic, drew heavily on intersubjectivity theory and the writings in this area. This presentation would likely be more introductory to offer clinicians unfamiliar with the topic and key concepts new ideas about how to practice clinically.
