The Work of Michael Parsons

The Work of Michael Parsons: Psychic Reality Negation and the Analytic Setting

Paula Mandel, Ph.D.

Thursday, March 15, 7:30–9:00pm


In this seminar we will do a close reading of Michael Parsons’ (2000) paper, “Psychic Reality, Negation and the Analytic Setting.” Parsons’ work brings us into the core of the analytic project. He explores the tension involved in maintaining a mental position capable of hearing and responding to the layers of meaning in our patients’ discourse. His work enhances and enriches our moments of meeting with our patients.
