THE INSTITUTE FOR EXPRESSIVE ANALYSIS, a NYS Registered Licensure-Qualifying Institute, invites you to our Annual Open House. Hear about IEA’s dynamic and creative approach to psychoanalysis. IEA provides intensive training in psychoanalytic theory and practice based upon a unique perspective that allows for verbal and, where indicated, non-verbal interventions such as art, poetry, movement, music, and drama. Our approach to psychoanalysis is eclectic and integrative: study Freud, Jung and post-classical, contemporary approaches such as Object Relations, Self Psychology, Relational and Intersubjective Theory. IEA’s highly developed way of working with both the verbal and non-verbal aspects of psychoanalysis has allowed us to be in the vanguard of this since our inception in 1978.
Two clinical cases will be presented that demonstrate our way of working, one given by a senior faculty member and the other by a current student:
Robert Wolf: “Using Expressive Art To Explore Psychoanalytic Process”
Cenk Cokuslu: “Planking – Playing Chaotic Hide and Seek at the Edge”
I am so delighted about the enthusiastic response to the idea of a book about aging and yoga, which would be part of the “Defining Moments” series published by LifeSherpa Publications (http://lifesherpa.com/). This book is geared to both aging yogis and the people who teach them. Perhaps you are yourself an aging yogi, or someone who teaches yoga to elders. The purpose of this project is to gather a collection of “defining moments” relating to yoga and to aging.
The papers selected for this project will be published, first on the internet, then maybe in a print format as well. Authors retain the copyright to their work. It is not expected that this work will lead to financial remuneration (in fact, it is expected that it won’t).
If you are seriously interested, please contact me, Lynn Somerstein at email@example.com. I would like you to please include your contact information, your qualifications (i.e. RYT, BA, MA, RN, PhD, whatever applies) and the school of yoga where you feel most at home. Perhaps you have more than one home, as many people do; that’s fine– if so, please mention that. If you have prior publications please include a sample or two. And don’t forget your website, or any other information that you think will help us get to know each other better.
Most important–please enclose a statement of about 500 words suggesting what you would like to write about. I am interested in first person descriptions of your personal experience. The deadline for this information is June 30. I will read your entries over the summer and get back to you in the Fall.
Thank you very much for your interest in this project.
