The 10th Anne W. Alonso, Lecture in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy - My “Couch” in the Barrio: A Psychoanalyst Looks At Clinical Practice With Poor Latinx and Marginalized Populations
This lecture argues for the pertinence and usefulness of psychoanalysis with populations of Latino-origin living under economically oppressive circumstances as well as with those of marginalized race, gender, class, or sexual identities. By embracing cultural difference by way of language, race, class, and identity, this lecture reveals the emancipatory potential of psychoanalysis and its ability to implement social change. At the intersection of psyche and community this lecture addresses modalities of individual suffering that are also allegories of social conditions. This focus is a crucial step towards an increased awareness of issues of culture, language, race and gender.
This program is intended for: Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Fellows, Residents, Interns and Nurses
At the end of this presentation participants will be able to:
- Identify common prejudices about working psychoanalytically with economically disadvantaged people.
- Identify common prejudices about working clinically with gender and sexuality non-normative patients.
- Describe at least 2 ways in which psychoanalysis can provide a more humanized clinical approach for populations of marginalized race, gender, class, or sexual identities and thus avoid exclusionary practices.
