This is Part 2 of a 3-Part Lecture Series on ASD & Psychoanalysis

Leon Brenner's The Autistic Subject: On the Threshold of Language (2020) makes a compelling case for the relevance of psychoanalysis in the understanding and treatment of autism. Counter to both the cognitive and identitarian approaches to autism, Brenner rigorously theorizes autism as a unique subjective structure and mode of access to language that sits alongside the classical Freudian structures of psychosis, neurosis, and perversion. In this talk we will engage with Brenner’s latest work in the field of autism research. Particularly, we will explore about Brenner’s description of autism as a mode-of-being, posed as an alternative to its determination as a developmental disorder. This will be an introductory lecture, providing the basis for further discussions on the autistic mode of access to language and its clinical implications.

Professionals (Master's Level Social Workers, Professional Counselors, and LMFT's, Ph.D.'s and Psy.D.'s) can receive 2 CE Credits for completing this webinar. To receive your CE Certificate of Completion, please email: bmberent@gmail.com

This presentation takes as a point of departure Toni Morrison's The Origins of Others (2017), a thought-provoking collection of lectures on race, fear, borders, mass movement of peoples, and desire for belonging, to reflect on my experience as a psychoanalyst working with populations marginalized by class, race, gender or sexuality. My intention is to move in the direction of intersectionality, stressing the importance of multiple subjective constructions such as race, gender, class, and sexual identity that crisscross and overlap in the "talking cure".

Sherry Turkle, in her groundbreaking book (2011) explores the question of “why we expect more from technology and less from each other.” This question has particular resonance in 2022 as we are approaching a third year living within the pandemic. Technology has transformed mental health practices, particularly since the start of the pandemic, offering new means and modalities of communicating with patients. However, questions have arisen regarding the complicated virtual nature of our professional relationships as well as ethical responsibilities.

This workshop will provide an overview of clinical, ethical and legal dilemmas associated with the use of technology in clinical practice. Topics such as establishing clear boundaries, maintenance of the virtual frame, privacy and confidentiality considerations, cross-state practice, hybrid/office covid protocols, management of clinical emergencies, and payment/reimbursement considerations will be addressed. Guidelines for best practices and risk management strategies will be provided.

Professionals (Master's Level Social Workers, Professional Counselors, and LMFT's, Ph.D.'s and Psy.D.'s) can receive 2.5 CE Credits for completing this webinar. To receive your CE Certificate of Completion, please email: bmberent@gmail.com

About the Panelists:

Daniel Atkins, Psy.D. serves as an intuitive guide for individuals of all ages to understand the lineages and layers of emotional trauma they carry, rewire the brain’s neural patterns, and move through pain in all forms in order to live the lives they were meant to live. Daniel graduated from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology as a PsyD, and pursued internship and postdoctoral training in the area of psychodynamic and attachment focused theories. He received his license in the Summer of 2021, but was guided to pursue a different path that aligned with his own healing experiences. Alongside his clinical experience, Daniel navigated a 10+ year journey with a misunderstood medical diagnosis. His personal journey led him to seek beyond the traditional bounds of western medicine in order to heal himself and develop the tools to guide others. As a result, Daniel developed an integrative practice that incorporates the foundations of his clinical training, his experience in the field of mind body medicine, and his intuitive guidance in energy medicine to meet the holistic needs of sufferers.

Derrick Hassert, Ph.D., is a Professor of Psychology at Trinity College in Palos Heights, Illinois and a Clinical Fellow of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society. Derrick is currently a psychoanalytic candidate at the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis, with previous training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy through the William Alanson White Institute and Columbia University's Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research.

Following internship, Alec applied for an informal post-doctoral fellowship at a private group practice located in Minnetonka, MN, a western suburb of Minneapolis, and completed his post-doctoral fellowship in September 2021.

 As Lewin (1955) pointed out, instead of building its metapsychology on the basis of neurotic conflict, psychoanalysis might have centered on the psychology of dreaming and unconscious phantasy. We invite "dreamers" to lie down in a quiet, dimly lit room and engage in a dreamy dialogue in order to help them wake up. This thesis will be supported both theoretically and clinically. 

Professionals (Master's Level Social Workers, Professional Counselors, and LMFT's, Ph.D.'s and Psy.D.'s) can receive 3 CE Credits for completing this webinar. To receive your CE Certificate of Completion, please email: bmberent@gmail.com
