Psychoanalytic Conversations
Re-Framing Psychoanalysis: New perspectives on our changing clinical situation

Join us at the home of Thomas Helscher and Karen Beard for the first of our new series, “Psychoanalytic Conversations.”The premise of this year-long series of conversations with LAISPS’s clinicians will be that the recent pandemic and its wrenching alterations of the frame are only the most dramatic and visible of the numerous tectonic shifts psychoanalysis has had to face in the last few decades, as we try to keep up with a rapidly changing world in which issues of gender, sexual orientation, race, and increasing political polarization have forced us to re-examine many of our basic assumptions about and theories underpinning our clinical work.

LAISPS is dedicated to psychoanalytic independence, an open-minded, discerning attitude toward the rich diversity of psychoanalytic theory and practice. We highly value the broad spectrum of psychoanalytic thought, including classical psychoanalytic theory, object relations, and attachment theory as well as contemporary perspectives of self psychology, intersubjectivity, and relational theories. The institute is committed to excellence in education of psychoanalysts as well as psychotherapists, graduate students and interns who wish to deepen their theoretical understanding and clinical skills in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
