Theodor Reik Guest Lecture (E803-D)
Instructor: Lynne Layton, PhD

40 West 13 Street, New York, NY
The first lecture focuses on various aspects of a social psychoanalysis, noting the normative assumptions that underlie our clinical work. It further describes and reflects on the differences between a psychoanalytic ethic of adaptation and a psychoanalytic ethic of disillusionment. The second lecture presents a relational theory of identity; identifies the concept of normative unconscious processes and how it appears in the clinic; lists and analyzes some of the ways racialized identities consciously and unconsciously emerge in clinical practice.
After attending the course, participants will be able to
– Explain what is meant by a race and class-conscious social psychoanalysis.
– Trace the history of a psychoanalytic ethic of disillusionment that periodically contests a psychoanalytic ethic of adaptation.
– Trace how neoliberal ideologies that focus largely on the economic and productive dimensions of social being omit the “Big History,” the injustices and inequalities, underlying the way we function.
– Discuss how the disavowal of racist, classist, sexist, and heterosexist norms affects our assumptions about social reality and how normative unconscious processes can eventuate in the replication of cultural inequalities in our clinical work.
– Describe how the history of white disavowals of race and racism pervade our social and psychic beings as well as our professional institutions.
