Colloquium: 2014 Bernard N. Kalinkowitz Memorial Lecture - The Oblique Angle: Psychoanalysis and the View from the Side
Co-sponsored by The Psychoanalytic Society of the Postdoctoral Program, Inc.
About the Presentation from Marilyn Charles:
I am intrigued by Lacan’s notion of the oblique angle, the view from the side, in part because of the inherent mystery of seeing beyond our limits and also because of ways in which women have been placed as the object of a gaze that is not their own. From that perspective, the woman is in the ‘sinister position,’ coming from the side. As a left-handed person in a right-handed world, caught up in emotions opposed by the constraining conventionality esteemed in my family, I have often felt that I stand ‘outside the gates,’ speaking towards an authority that is not my own, hoping to be authorized by someone who fails to understand me. Therefore, this issue of what stands between the subject and her object remains a compelling question, a clinical dilemma captured by Lacan’s diagram in which the analyst looks from the side to view what stands between the person and the projection of self imposed precisely because of beliefs that keep her from more truly being. We try to capture ourselves from various angles, looking for keys to a mystery we are terrified to reveal. The gaze from the oblique angle catches us in our games, busy pretending that if we close our eyes tightly enough we cannot be seen. The appeal of the oblique angle is also an aesthetic one, capturing a movement in the dance, a moment in the mystery. A case will be offered to explore what this oblique angle may both hide and reveal.

The dissociative processes of caregivers can resurface as the experience of internal blankness in subsequent generations. In such cases a substantial part of the analyst’s task is to enter this blankness and elicit the emergence of complex internal representations that can be loved, hated, and ultimately mourned. An analytic case will be discussed that will focus on the interpersonal processes that allow a patient with a multi-generational legacy of political violence to increase their capacity to organize internal presences and establish a more cohesive personal history.

Treating Developmental Crises in Young Adults
Marsha Levy-Warren, Ph.D.
NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
How can that be Me?: Developmental Disruption in a Young Adult.
A college student cannot sleep for days on end. What soon emerges is that he is in the throes of a manic psychotic break; and a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. How does this formerly steady, successful young man integrate this experience into his sense of himself? This presentation addresses this from developmental and clinical standpoints.
Christopher Bonovitz, Psy.D.
NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
All But Dissertation (ABD)/All But Parricide (ADP): The Renegotiation of the Parent-Child Relationship in Young Adulthood and the Role of the Analyst’s Narcissism.
This paper addresses recurring developmental crises during young adulthood, detailing a young adult patient’s struggle to rework attachment in light of parental narcissistic vulnerabilities and dependencies. Using Loewald’s work, the project of symbolically “killing off the parent” and the process of mourning in the service of psychic reorganization will be discussed. The analyst’s emerging subjectivity and narcissistic vulnerability will be considered in relation to the case material.
