Reflections on Bidirectional Influence in the Matisse/Picasso Relationship and in Clinical Practice
January 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $30 – $45 Cost at the Door: $40
Presented by Linda Carter, M.S.N., C.S.
For two personalities to meet is like mixing two different chemical substances: if there is any combination at all, both are transformed – C.G. Jung, CW 16.
Jung’s prescient grasp of the relational aspect of psyches resonates with contemporary notions of bidirectional influence in psychotherapy. In this talk we will examine the role of Complex Adaptive Systems Theory (CAS), fundamental to infant research, as a model for furthering the process of individuation. We will look at some of the ways that individuation unfolds in the context of a relationship between two people, both in adult clinical interactions in the consulting room, as well as in the developing artistic exchange between Matisse and Picasso.
- Describe the basic principles of Complex Adaptive Systems Theory in the context of the therapeutic relationship.
- Describe what is meant by the term bidirectionality, and its use in psychotherapy.
