Structure and Spontaneity in Clinical and Other Literary Prose
An Interactive Discussion with Eitz Chayim Member, Suzi Naiburg
Sunday Morning, November 15, 2015
10:00 a.m. Coffee and Bagels
10:30 a.m. – noon Discussion
Drawing on her new book, Structure and Spontaneity in Clinical Prose: A Writer’s Guide for Psychoanalysts and Psychotherapists, Suzi Naiburg will demonstrate how each of the five modes of clinical prose-the narrative, evocative, enactive, lyric narrative, and paradigmatic-can be seen to operate in books we might read when pursuing an adult Jewish education. As we discuss the writing samples Suzi provides, we will discover different ways writers construct worlds out of language and use language to create different kinds of experience for readers. Like the climbing structures in contemporary playgrounds, each mode affords opportunities for vision, perspective, creativity, and play.
For readers, writers, and listeners. Familiarity with psychotherapy is not a prerequisite.
