THE PHILADELPHIA JUNGIAN PROFESSIONAL CLUB
AND
The National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis

ARE PLEASED TO OFFER:

 

Mental Health: A Vanishing Concept

 

It has become common to construe therapy as about symptom relief or “behavioral” health. Such a focus reflects the interests of the insurance and pharmaceutical industries, which have a stake in defining wellness narrowly, as the absence of observable symptoms and problem behaviors. It also reflects the needs of researchers to operationalize outcomes in statistically manageable ways. But the research paradigm has been misapplied to the realm of clinical practice. In the mid-1900s, there was a spirited professional conversation (e.g., by Horney, Maslow, Szasz, Jahoda) about what constitutes mental health in a broader sense. We need to have that conversation again in the context of a more global, diverse, and fast-changing culture. Dr. McWilliams will review both traditional and more recently formulated components of mental health, such as ego strength, affect tolerance, security of attachment, mentalization, and capacity for intimacy, with an emphasis on implications for psychotherapy and counseling.

Date:     Friday, May 13th, 2011

Place:
    The Academy House (Lower Level)
             1420 Locust Street
             Philadelphia, PA 19102

Learning Objectives: Upon Completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the recent history of the concept of mental health and the controversies that have attended it.

  2. Discriminate between research paradigms and clinical paradigms and avoid misapplying the former to the latter.

  3. Distinguish between self-in-relation and self-definition orientations and appreciate their implications for psychotherapy.

  4. Translate to their therapeutic work sixteen elements of mental and emotional health.
