MITPP 2019 Summer Institute: Shopping Addictions: Beyond The Primal

Start Date: Saturday, June 15, 2019
End Date: Saturday, June 15, 2019
Location: New York, NY 10023
Instructor:Ricardo Rieppi, Ph.D.
Money is among the most emotionally charged subjects in contemporary life and in the psychoanalytic consultation room, with multiple meanings that are suffused with conscious and unconscious associations to power, security, self-worth, and love. These unconscious meanings in turn affect unconscious motivations that clash with our conscious striving and subsequently create problematic money symptoms, such as compulsive shopping, which can be seen as attempts to amend a missed or derailed developmental need. A comprehensive and extensive exploration of how patients regard and handle money can help us reveal, understand, and resolve our patients’ most powerfully influential attitudes, beliefs, and feelings, as well as provide us with an opportunity to explore deeper issues of developmental arrest and psychic conflict. We will discuss the historical and contemporary psychoanalytic perspectives on money and its use, with a primary focus on central themes that underlie our clinical understanding and treatment of compulsive shopping. Participants will review psychoanalytic conceptions of money, examine the meaning, clinical process, and psychoanalytic treatment of compulsive shopping, and explore clinical material that illustrates issues related to the treatment of compulsive shopping.
