Sarah Nettleton, M.A. Presents:

 The Work of Christopher Bollas
Saturday, October 19, 2019
9:30 am - 4:00 pm (5.0 CME/CE)

Expanding on the legacy of Freud, Winnicott and Bion, Christopher Bollas’ work offers a radically innovative contribution to contemporary psychoanalysis. His clinical and theoretical writings are wide-ranging, addressing psychoanalytic technique, psychopathology, the nature of psychic health and creative living, and the intricate complexity of human subjectivity. In this seminar, Sarah Nettleton, M.A., will introduce the basic elements that are fundamental to Bollas’ metapsychological model, exploring many of the concepts that he has developed over the past thirty years. These will include: the receptive unconscious and psychic genera; idiom and the unthought known; the evocative object and object use as a form of thinking; maternal and paternal experience. The discussion will be based on an in-depth exploration of various papers by Bollas, some of which participants will be asked to read in advance (see link below for advance reading list).
