Franco Scabbiolo Weekend Event

Overview

A Close Reading of Feeling the Feelings of the Feeling

Franco Scabbiolo In-Person 3-Day Event

In this in-person, three-part series Franco Scabbiolo will guide students through his upcoming book, Feeling the Feelings of the Feeling: Awakening Creative Disquiet from Fear of Aesthetic Change (2024). The series will dive into Scabbiolo’s “psychoaesthetic process,” which he delineates into three phases and events (Aesthetic, Analytic, and Creative) that present in every psychotherapeutic session. These phases illuminate a process of coming to feel alive in the universe. Building on Meltzer’s concepts of the aesthetic conflict and the claustrum, Scabbiolo has molded his analytic process over 40 years of work with children and adults. His long-awaited book is the first publication that pulls together his concepts into one overarching vision. In the series, he will encourage participants and students to “unlearn from experience,” while grasping to feel the feelings as well as the “unfeelings” by opening themselves up to raw aesthetic experience. He will present concepts such as misfeelings, unfeelings, creative conflict, the awakening of the filmmaker of dreams, abandoned-abandoning, among others, while also delving into the complexities of aesthetic harmonies and contrasts, highlighting ethical and symbolic conflicts.

Along with presenting sections from his book, Scabbiolo will present excerpts from sessions, children’s drawings, dreams, film and poems to illustrate his journey throughout the events. Reading through Scabbiolo’s book prior to the Seminars is encouraged so participants can bring reflections and questions. The book will be available for purchase online Aprill 22, 2024.

The workshop will focus on:

– The nature of Feeling the Feelings of the Feeling
– The psychoaesthetic process in relation to psychoanalytic concepts, particularly of transference and projective identification
– The experience of psycho-aesthetic-analytic-creative work
– The awakening in the process of the filmmaker of dreams in the patient and the analyst
– The creation of new ideas and feelings in the therapeutic and non-therapeutic relationship within the forces of “functional minding” and the “aesthetic reason” to create
– The strength of the emergence of “feeling the feelings” which generates a new image of the psychoanalytic process and a new way of penetrating dreams, which allows them to come alive
