Scientific Meetings: A Forum for Community Conversations

The topic of Intuition is an intriguing, elusive and perhaps neglected one in psychoanalytic thinking. Some of the outstanding figures in British Object Relations were known as deeply intuitive thinkers. For example, the clinical work of Melanie Klein, Wilfred Bion, Donald Meltzer, and Betty Joseph relied not only on theory but on the analyst’s intuition in making links from the patient’s communications and material. How do we think about intuition and its place in psychoanalytic listening?

Over the course of seven meetings this academic year presenters will consider the theme of intuition and explore how to conceptualize and describe it. Presenters include Maxine Anderson, MD, FIPA, Jeffrey Eaton, MA, FIPA, Judy K Eekhoff, PhD, FIPA, Caron Harrang, LICSW, FIPA, and Robert Oelsner, MD, FIPA. Presentations will include reviews of articles and discussions with the audience as well as the presenters' own reflections on articles and topics, and in some cases, original work. A panel of presenters will conclude the series in May.

Meetings will stand on their own, but attended together will comprise a series intended to provide a deepened and multi-perspective view into how Intuition is currently understood and used clinically, particularly within the Klein-Bion tradition.
