The Presentation:

This clinical seminar explores the role that secrets play in analytic treatment. Several kinds of secrets are discussed and illustrated, with emphasis placed on those that are shared by patient and analyst but are not openly acknowledged by either. Constituting a covert collusion between patient and analyst, these secrets create an analytic third that exerts a strong influence on the course and outcome of the analytic work.

There will be extensive interaction between the presenter and participants, with an opportunity to discuss one’s clinical work. 


  1. Enumerate three types of secrets that occur frequently in analytic sessions.
  2. Give an example of a secret jointly shared by patient and analyst.
  3. Describe a clinical situation in which it may be necessary for the analyst to disclose his/her secret to the patient.

FEE: $150 (lunch included)

Pre-registration is required to attend this event.
