Reading Seminar Description

In this workshop we will be exploring new ways to  approach clinical writing from a more intersubjective stance. We will look at ideas about intersubjective reading and writing developed by feminist literary critics. We will discuss creative non-fiction writing and medical narrative writing as they pertain to psychoanalytic writing. Dr. Ragen will do a short reading from her book, The Consulting Room and Beyond: Psychoanalytic Treatment and its Reverberations in the Analyst’s Life. Participants, led by Dr. Ragen, will engage in doing some writing of their own.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will learn about feminist literary criticisms pertaining to reading and writing intersubjectively
  • Participants will learn about the literary genre of creative non-fiction and relate it to psychoanalytic writing.
  • Participants will learn about the genre of medical narrative writing and relate it to psychoanalytic writing.
  • Participants will learn about the intergenerational transmission of trauma.
  • Participants will consider spiritual longing and its place in psychoanalytic dialogue.
  • Participants will be exposed to the place of death and dying in psychoanalytic treatment.
  • Participants will write a short clinical piece, using the ideas from the workshop.
