South Bay Monthly Reading Group – May

Jessica Benjamin: Intersubjectivity and the Third

Friday, May 18, 7-9pm

SBCPS is hosting a monthly reading group for interested clinicians at all levels of involvement. Meetings are held in a home in Palo Alto. Our intent is to gather for a close reading, and some discussion, of key papers in the contemporary psychoanalytic literature which focus on both theory and technique as illustrated through case material in the readings.

Reading (updated)

  1. Benjamin, J. (2018/2016). Our appointment in Thebes: Acknowledgement, the failed witness and fear of harming. In J. Benjamin, Beyond Doer and Done To: Recognition Theory, Intersubjectivity and the Third. Routledge: NY. (49-70).

This month’s SBRG will focus on a piece written by J. Benjamin. Please try to read through the articles which are admittedly difficult - but well worth the effort. Underline important passages which we will read/discuss together when we meet.
