Embodyment and the Perversion of Subjective Desire
Presenter: Andrea Celenza, PhD
Discussant: Christine Dunbar, MD

The case of a young woman, Laura, who struggles with an unusual fear about her sexuality, is used to illustrate ways in which subjective positions and affective (embodied) states can be defended against and culminate in a perverse mode of relating. A schematic is offered that depicts various subjective positions (The Embodied Subject, The Reflective Self or “I,” The Subjective Object or “Me,” The Objectified Self or “It,” and Unconscious Processes or “Not Me”). Powerpoint slides will be used to illustrate the schematic, the subjective positions and their interpenetration. A modification illustrating a perverse mode of relating depicts the Embodied Subject as dissociated and how Laura struggles against a feeling of her embodied sexuality.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the session participants will be able:

Identify perverse modes of relating and perverse uses of one’s body so that clinical modalities can target dissociative processes.
Reformulate, explore and address disembodied forms of subjective desire to linke and contain their patient’s affective experience.
Enhance their knowledge, practice and improve the quality of analytic process and communication in relation to perverse scenarios.
Describe the difference between healthy and perverse modes of relating.
Demonstrate the clinical utility of identifying various positions of subjectivity, such as the Embodied Subject, the Reflective Self and the Subjective Object.

Why and How Consciousness Arises

Dr. Solms will discuss recent developments in neuropsychoanalysis that illuminate the “hard problem” of consciousness – how and why the subjective experience of consciousness arises in conjunction with the functions of the brain.   Solms’ model integrates insights from affective neuroscience, the “conscious id” hypothesis, and Friston’s model of predictive coding, free energy and “surprise,” with implications for clinical work.
