Notes from the Field
Depth-oriented psychology is under continual pressure to move toward a behavioral medicine approach, emphasizing short-term treatment that is narrowly focused on symptom reduction. At the same time, depth-oriented approaches are experiencing a renaissance, with new journals and podcasts broadening the scope of what is seen as psychoanalytic. New ways of working that promote creativity and expansiveness and undermine marginalization are being introduced into the field, opening potential spaces for reflection and greater inclusion.
This conference brings together California Institute of Integral Studies faculty and alumni as well as psychologists in the field to speak about this paradox and share how they are providing depth-oriented treatment in this current climate. We will hear from psychologists working in private practice, in community mental health, and in training programs and how they see depth-oriented psychology as crucial to how they think.
We will explore how a psychoanalytic perspective can help unlock and unwind neo-liberal colonial attitudes and challenge the status quo. We will take up the burgeoning field of psychedelic-assisted therapy and how a depth-oriented stance is necessary within this arena of psychology. Join us in engaging in dialogue and building community as we come together to reconnect, learn, and engage with our values.
