January 12, 2024 – William Pinney, PhD
Tigger, Eeyore, and the Crunch of (Mis)Recognition; The work of Paul Russell, MD
Paul Russell once wrote, “There is no real treatment process that does not include some piece of therapy for the therapist.” This program will detail Russell’s contribution to our understanding of complicated treatment impasses, detailing a variety of his contributions but focusing primarily on his 1975 paper “The Theory of the Crunch.” Participants will be introduced to this work and it’s prescient focus on the co-contributions of both patient’s and therapist’s intermingling psychologies to the treatment process, particularly as they combine to create treatment ruptures and/or impasses. Much of Russell’s work presages many core aspects of the Relational perspective’s focus on co-creation and the therapeutic use of enactments. These theoretical understandings will be examined in the context of a case presentation of a many year, three-times weekly psychotherapy that presented significant challenges to both the patient and the therapist.
William Pinney, PhD, is a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Washington, DC, working with adults in both individual and group psychotherapy. He is on the faculty (and past chair) of the Supervision Training Program as well as faculty and supervisor in the Clinical Program on Psychotherapy Practice, both at the Washington School of Psychiatry. Dr. Pinney is also a faculty member and supervisor in the Contemporary Approaches to Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy program at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.
