Case Consultation with Anton Hart

Working with Radical Openness

This monthly case consultation group, led by Anton Hart, PhD, FABP, FIPA will focus on working from a perspective of "radical openness" to the patient's experience. Developed by Dr. Hart as an approach which emphasizes receptiveness to the validity and truth in what the patient conveys, no matter how strange or foreign it may seem, radical openness draws on interpersonal, relational, phenomenological and hermeneutic theories in conceiving of a psychoanalytic stance to listening that emphasizes the therapist's own unconsciousness and the need for humility.

We will proceed with a plan of two case presentations per monthly meeting. Participants will be encouraged to present case material from psychotherapeutic work with patients whose perspective—on life, on the world, on the treatment or on the therapist—feels markedly different from the therapist's own perspective. Such difference in the treatment relationship may be derived from racial, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical ability status, or other demographic difference in the psychotherapeutic dyad, or it may derive from non-overtly categorical contrasts within the therapeutic pair.

The emphasis of this group experience will be on clinical process rather than on theory, but selected readings may be assigned as desired by the participants.
