Dr. Donna Orange – My Other’s Keeper: Sustaining the Ethical Turn in Psychoanalysis
October 24, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Donna Orange, Ph.D., Psy.D. is Assistant Clinical Professor (Adjunct) and Consultant/Supervisor at the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, as well as Faculty and Training and Supervising Analyst at both the Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychology of the Self and Relational Psychoanalysis, in Rome and Milan, and the Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, in New York. She has authored, co-authored, or edited seven books and numerous articles; her forthcoming book is: Nourishing the Inner Life of Clinicians and Humanitarians: The Ethical Turn in Psychoanalysis.
Donna’s profound empathic connection with her patients — her clinical hospitality as she describes it — has made her a welcoming and inclusive companion in the consulting room. Her advanced credentials in both psychology and philosophy have been the basis for a broad and innovative grasp of the theoretical underpinnings of her phenomenological and contextualist approach. Her work is not done, however, in the thicket of theory; Donna’s clinical work has focused on lived experience and its meanings for her patients, and her teaching offers a clear, succinct, and moving exploration of her approach. She describes psychoanalysis as a process of “making sense together,” and as “a human conversation about meaning, for the purpose of organizing troubled worlds.”
