“The Analyst’s Self-Disclosure”
 Steven Kuchuck, LCSW
 This daylong workshop will focus on helping psychoanalytic therapists at all levels of training and experience to identify and track the impact of their life experiences, crises, and psychological makeup on their clinical work. Particular attention will be paid to exploring areas of overlap and differentiation between two phenomena that are often confused: self-disclosure and the larger issue of the therapist's subjectivity.

The seminar's primary focus will be on exploring the analyst's use of self via various forms of self-disclosure. In a related vein, we will define both the obvious and more subtle distinctions between inadvertent and deliberate self-disclosure, the impact of analysts' multiple self-states and their relationship to disclosure as these states arise in various clinician-patient dyads, conscious and unconscious reasons therapists choose to disclose or attempt to refrain from deliberate sharing, analyst fantasies around control of what patients know or learn about us, and differentiating between the analyst's needs and the patient's needs for the analyst to deliberately share or attempt to conceal disclosures.

The workshop will include a combination of readings, lecture and discussion, and for those who are interested, informal sharing of participants' clinical material. Readings will be distributed prior to the start of the seminar
