Mitchell Wilson Seminar
Saturday 1st May 2021 5.30pm – 8.30pm online via zoom
Mitchell Wilson is a training and supervising analyst at the San Francisco Centre for Psychoanalysis, U.S.A. His central idea is at the same time simple and complex; that the analyst’s desire (also applicable to the counsellor and psychotherapist) has a great impact on the patient/client.
He explains: ”The direct impact of the analyst’s desire on the patient is of great clinical consequence when something is amiss in their relating and interacting. I believe that when the analyst is confronted by a clinical impasse of any variety – with confusion or boredom, or from a tense moment, to an enactment, to an ongoing stalemate – she is in a state of desire relative to her patient. That is, the analyst wants something she is not getting from the patient, at that moment, but does not know what this wanting amounts to or that she is in such a state to begin with. This state of desire unacknowledged is usually tucked under the umbrella of the countertransference, a state of mind in the analyst that is presumed to be caused by or intimately related to the patient’s unconscious conflicts and struggles” (From the Preface of Mitchell Wilson’s book – The Analyst’s Desire. The Ethical Foundation of Clinical Practice. 2020.).
Mitchell Wilson will be running an online seminar on Saturday May 1st from 5.30 – 8.30pm in which he will present this idea and its relation to countertransference and ethics. Places will be limited in order to enable maximum participation and discussion. The unusual timing of the seminar is due to the time difference between the UK and USA. Participants will be asked to read two papers on the subject so as to acquaint themselves with Mitchell’s ideas beforehand.
