MUSICALITY IN THE INTERSUBJECTIVE ANALYTIC DYAD

This ongoing Listening Seminar to the Musicality in the intersubjective patient-analyst couple, focuses on the containing function of the analytic encounter through the non-verbal communicative aspects of both the patient and the analyst's inner worlds, the rhythm, cadence, primitive umbilical connection of the telephone. This seminar will teach the Kleinian Technique of formulating dynamic interpretations of the patient's inner world and its objects, through case presentations and contemporary journal and seminal analytic papers.
