About Dr. Hershberg:
Dr. Sandra Hershberg is a psychoanalyst and adult and child psychiatrist. She is the Director of Psychoanalytic Training, Founding Member and Training and Supervising Analyst at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis in Washington, DC. She is a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis and a Geographical Supervising Analyst at the St Louis Institute of Psychoanalysis. She is on the Executive Board and a Council Member of the International Association of Psychoanalytic Self Psychology. Dr. Hershberg serves as an Associate Editor of the Psychoanalysis, Self and Context and is on the Editorial Board of Psychoanalytic Inquiry. She is the Co-Editor and a contributor to the book Psychoanalytic Theory, Research, and Clinical Practice: Reading Joseph D. Lichtenberg published by Routledge in 2016. Most recently, she has co-edited and contributed to the latest volume of Psychoanalysis, Self and Context (Vol 4, 2017) entitled, International Perspectives on Child and Adolescent Treatment: In Celebration of Anna Ornstein.
Dr. Hershberg has published and presented papers on a wide variety of subjects including biography and psychoanalysis, pregnancy and creativity, therapeutic action, and the mother/daughter relationship. Currently she is working on two projects: the female gaze on the female body in art and psychoanalysis, focusing on the work of German modernist painter Paula Modersohn-Becker, and second on the study of physical and psychological disability in a creative young woman.
Dr. Hershberg's presentation explores the psychoanalytic aspects of biography and the biographical aspects of psychoanalysis. The narratives that emerge from biography and psychoanalytic treatment incorporate elements of empathy, ideology (theory), and transference/countertransference and are co-constructed within an intersubjective field involving the subjectivities of both participants, the biographer and her subject, and the analyst and her analysand. Dr. Hershberg will provide examples that demonstrate the way in which the analyst's biography and analysand's autobiography change in the course of the psychoanalytic treatment. Salient difference between biographical and psychoanalytic endeavors are also discussed.
At the conclusion of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
1. identify ways in which the biographical and psychoanalytic enterprises are similar and gives examples.
2. describe ways in which the biographical and psychoanalytic endeavors are different and give examples.
