Virtue Ethics, Clinical Wisdom and Narratives from the “Virtuous” Psychoanalyst: Where Does Jung Fit In?


October 17, 2014
Cynthia Baum-Baicker, Ph.D.

Cynthia Baum-Baicker, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and trained psychoanalyst in practice in Center City, Philadelphia and Doylestown, PA. Founder of the Division 39 Wisdom Project, she sits on the Advisory Board of the Scattergood Program for the Applied Ethics of Behavioral Healthcare at the University of Pennsylvania. Her virtue ethics-wisdom work has been published in the Journal of Clinical Ethics and the American Psychologist. She has presented virtue ethics/wisdom workshops for APA’s Divisions 39 and 29; the American Psychiatric Association; the Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists; and the Philadelphia Society for Psychoanalytic Education. She is president of APA Division 39 Section on Couples and Family Therapy; sits on the National Behavioral Health Leadership Council; and is board chair of the Thomas Scattergood Foundation for Behavioral Healthcare.

Bion (1978/2000) noted that wisdom is a “long-distance affair” taking time to develop; and, which must be experienced. It was Jung (1931/1976) who suggested that late adulthood can bring liberation of unconscious processes, as one turns away from pre-occupations with the outer world and if so inclined, moves more towards the inner world (Labouvie-Vief, 1994). Once “liberated”, how does the “wise” clinician engage in clinical work? How can we define “Clinical Wisdom” in such a way that it is a useful, ethically-sound frame in which clinicians can practice? Findings from The Division 39 Wisdom Project, a multi-year qualitative research project in which seasoned, senior psychoanalysts deemed “wise” by their peers revealed several factors that were thought to underlie Clinical Wisdom in the psychotherapeutic-psychoanalytic context. These factors will be extensively detailed, using excerpts from interviews. Narratives from the interviews will highlight the proposed features of Clinical Wisdom. The workshop will conclude with a slide show of each seasoned senior psychoanalyst who participated in the study along with some salient wisdoms that s/he shared.
