Old Ways, Recent Developments: Topics in Daseinanalysis

Miles Groth will present “Old Ways, Recent Developments: Two Topics in Daseinanalysis”. The presentation coincides with the publication of his paper in the July issue of Existential Analysis: “Therapeutic Eros in Daseinanalysis: amo, vol ut sis.”

The presentation will be in two parts: (1) Medard Boss and Alberto Seguín on the therapeutic eros, the Dasein-Dasein relation, and therapeutic liberation, and (2) the use of the couch in daseinanalysis.

Therapists often discuss the ontic relationship between therapist and client but little attention is paid to what makes this relationship possible, namely, the ontological relation between the existence (Dasein) of each that subtends the ontic relationship.

Dr. Groth will discuss how to understand the structure of the crossing of the “ontic-ontological divide” in therapeutic eros.

Second, one of the hallmarks of daseinanalysis is a legacy of its origins in psychoanalysis: the use of the couch. Although not often mentioned, this has always been and continues to be part of the practice of daseinanalysis.

Dr. Groth will comment on the reasons for the need for this element of practice especially in the context of recent questions about the efficacy of virtual encounters between therapist and other necessitated by the COVID pandemic.
