Coming 2019-20: Conferences at the Chicago Institute 

 

Mental Health In Prisons: Psychoanalytic Perspectives -- A Symposium 

Saturday, October 26, 2019 (6 CE credits)

One-third of American’s adult population has passed through the criminal justice system and now has a criminal record. This “carceral state” affects us all, entangled as it is in our racial, social, and political community life.  The Prison Symposium brings a psychoanalytic perspective to bear on the multiple mental health issues that bring people into prison, continue and are complicated by imprisonment and follow them when they leave. It will address the dynamics between guards and prisoners, the social meaning of the prison system, the havoc it wreaks on individual and family life, and the consequences for members of communities affected by mass incarceration. 

Speakers include the two winners of the Institute’s Seidenberg Prize, Stephanie Gangemi LCSW, whose paper focused on training of guards as main providers of mental health care, and Elizabeth Kita PhD, who discussed antidotes to the systemic dehumanization and its impact on the imprisoned as well as the imprisoners.  Anne Dailey, Professor of Law and author of Law and the Unconscious: A Psychoanalytic Perspective, will discuss the papers.  Joseph Galenek PhD, a medical anthropologist will share his research on violence prevention and effective mental health treatment in prisons.  In addition, a panel of experts who have worked in the prison system will discuss their experiences with the prison environment as we consider the way these issues confront us all.  

Understanding Gender Fluidity 2020

Friday evening March 6 & all-day Saturday, March 7, 2020 (7.5 CE credits)

A century ago Freud declared, “Anatomy is destiny.” Since then conceptions of gender have undergone a profound transformation.  Feminist theory, queer theory and ideas of intersectionality—the interconnected institutions of gender, race and class cannot be examined separately—have influenced psychoanalytic thinking in the 21st century.  Our psychoanalytic psychology of gender is being worked and reworked to incorporate the ways each person expresses and experiences gender as an important aspect of personal and social identity.  No longer destiny, but fluidity.

“Understanding Gender Fluidity 2020” brings together national speakers, Jack Drescher, MD and Melanie Suchet, PhD, with presenters from the Chicago Institute and the greater Chicago community.  The conference will address issues of fluency in gender terminology, the rethinking of the developmental process once gender is not destiny but fluid, the impact of gender shaming and violence on personal identity and social mores, and enhanced gender sensibility in the clinical situation.

The Institute gratefully recognizes the support of Dentons US LLP and Yellowbrick Foundation for these upcoming conferences.
