From the beginning of psychoanalysis, many have made comparisons between analysis and art. Recently there has been increasing interest in the relationship between artistic and psychotherapeutic practices. Most importantly, both professions are viewed as highly creative, with spontaneity, improvisation, and aesthetic experience seeming common to each. However, differences have also been recognized, especially regarding the different goals of each profession: art leading to the creation of artwork, and psychoanalysis resulting in the increased welfare and happiness of the patient. In this presentation George Hagmann and Karen Schwartz will examine this complex relationship between art and the analytic process.
1. At the end of this program you will be able to discuss the relational context of aesthetic experience and the role of relatedness and intersubjectivity in the creative process.
2. At the end of this program you will be able to explain the contemporary self-psychological perspective on aesthetics, art, and creativity.
3. At the end of this program you will be able to assess the creative potential of patients and to apply therapeutic interventions to open blockages to creativity.
