Al-Anon and Psychoanalytic Treatment: Helping Those Affected by a Loved One's Addiction by Liz Kennedy
Twelve-step self-help groups have a mixed reputation— by some they are seen as effective in supporting change, by others they are seen as cult-like, controlling, and hokey. This presentation defends the value of Al-Anon family groups and “co-dependency” literature as a valuable supplement to the psychoanalytic treatment of those who love addicts— the children, wives, husbands, and friends of alcoholics and drug addicts. It also explains several ways that Al-Anon and “co-dependency” self-help culture can be understood psychoanalytically and how Al-Anon literature contains valuable insights into the subjective experience of the family members of addicts. Learning Objectives: 1. Define co-dependency; 2. Name at least one common pattern of relating in co-dependent relationships; 3. Identify one way co-dependent patterns may manifest in the countertransference.

Adler and Freud: Differences and Contributions, by Dale V. Wayman, PhD, LCAC, LMHC
Some have posited that Adlerian theory and Freudian theory are compatible to the point where a practitioner can call her/himself a "psychoanalytic individual psychologist." However, as noted in the presentation, there are several foundational differences between Adler and Freud which make this moniker unreasonable. Additionally, Adlerian contributions to society will be discussed. Learning Objectives: 1. Name seven foundational principles of Adler; 2. Describe how these principles contradict Freud's theory; 3. Name Adlerian contributions to society.

Working from a Psychoanalytic Perspective in Everyday Clinical Work
Presented by Matthias Beier, Ph.D This session will engage participant's case material in a conversation on psychoanalytic assessment and practice. Research by Shedler and others validates psychoanalytic work empirically. A second edition of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual will soon be published which, in contrast to the DSM V, takes mental health as its baseline. A variety of psychoanalytic perspectives can be useful in everyday clinical work in a wider range of settings. 1. To identify two empirical research findings supporting the efficacy of psychoanalytic work 2. To apply the assessment form of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual 2 in everyday clinical assessment and treatment planning 3. To identify two key factors to guide which psychoanalytic perspective may prove helpful in working with particular psychodynamics
