This forthcoming book, "Intimacies: A New World of Relational Life," includes a chapter I have written, entitled "Intimacy and Ambivalence." The hardcover is expensive, for libraries, but it will be quickly followed by a paperback edition.

Pre-conference Workshops

Donna Orange: The Suffering Stranger

Full Day Pre-Conference Workshop, Thursday, October 3rd, 2013
Presenter: Donna Orange
Attitudes toward clinical work, in the moment of facing the terrified and traumatized patient, often group themselves around two traditions. We may react to the patient with a critical, suspicious, diagnostic attitude that distances us from the other’s humanity, wondering what the other is up to with all these demands, acting out, and pathologies. Or we may, recognizing in the other person another sufferer both like and unlike ourselves, respond by wondering what the other needs in this moment to feel included in humanity, held, and healed. These two attitudes describe a large shift in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in recent years that we can describe in terms of the hermeneutics (theory of interpretation) of suspicion—needed as it may sometimes be–and a hermeneutics of trust.
In this pre-conference workshop, Donna Orange will bring a philosophical (and clinical) eye toward five major thinkers in psychoanalysis – Sándor Ferenczi, Frieda Fromm-Reichmann, D. W. Winnicott, Heinz Kohut, and Bernard Brandchaft – investigating the hermeneutic approach of each, engaging these innovative thinkers precisely as interpreters, and as those who have seen the face and heard the voice of the other in the ethical sense.
Cost: $250
