  6. Does Psychoanalysis Need Neuroscience?

    October 18, 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM @ The Institute for Clinical Social Work ~ Robert Morris College

    In recent years, controversy has arisen as to whether the findings of the neuroscience should be integrated into psychoanalytic theory. In this presentation, I propose that such an integration is critical to our understanding of our patients. I offer a neuropsychodynamic model based on scientific realism and dynamic systems theory as an approach to such an integration. As a profession we’re increasingly poised as a medical sub-specialty, linking ourselves to “expert” and “evidence based” discourses (such as brain science). Will discuss the importance of a psychoanalytic clinical vision—and ways of talking about the human subject—in the face of grand explanatory systems, focusing on how social work’s humanistic emphasis on empathy, relationship, meaning, care, and critique stands a dissident force in a consumer world.
