                                         The Romantic Sensibility in Psychoanalysis
                           Presenter: Frank Summers, Ph.D., ABPP; Discussant: Marcia Dobson, Ph.D.

Marcia Dobson, Ph.D. is Professor of Classics at Colorado College. She holds a Ph.D. in Classical Philology and a Ph.D. in
Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Depth Psychology. Dr. Dobson’s areas of interest span classical mythology, dreams
and the unconscious, psychoanalysis in the contemporary world, and self psychology. She writes and presents in the fields of
ancient Greek myth and drama in relation to psychoanalysis in its various forms, and she teaches many popular classes including
Myth and Meaning, Discovering the Unconscious, Classical Mythology in Art and Literature, Sources of the Self, and
Renaissance Culture. Dr. Dobson also is Associate Editor to the International Journal of Psychoanalytic Self Psychology and
was the contributing editor to this journal’s recent issue, The Life and Forward Edge of Marian Tolpin, Vol.4, Supplement 1
(2009). She has a private practice in Self Psychology in Colorado Springs, CO.

Purpose: The goal of this paper is to demonstrate that there is a way of looking at the psychoanalytic process that transcends
theoretical divisions and has concrete implications for the stance and strategy adopted by the analyst. This analytic sensibility
will be related to the Romantic Movement in the humanities of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and its reaction to
the neoclassical period. Contemporary currents in psychoanalysis can be seen as a similar reaction to a kind of classicism that
characterized the history of psychoanalysis and have opened the process in a manner analogous to the Romantic Movement in
the humanities.

Educational Objectives: At the end of this presentation participants will be able to: 1) delineate the primary concepts of a
romantic sensibility in psychoanalysis; 2) articulate the clinical implications of the romantic sensibility in psychoanalysis; and 3)
understand the relationship between trends in contemporary psychoanalysis and the Romantic Movement in the humanities of
the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

Target Audience: Psychoanalysts, other interested mental health professionals, and members of the community
