How do we know exactly what to do and say as psychotherapists? Clinical intuition is indispensable to effective psychotherapy, yet the topic is rarely discussed within the current social politics of our field. Clinical intuition fills the gap between theory and practice through moment-to-moment, embodied perceptions and emergent responses unique to each person, moment, and therapeutic dyad. This workshop explores conscious as well as nonconscious aspects of intuition that arise in therapists and patients alike. An interactive format integrates interpersonal neurobiology with artful dimensions of psychotherapy.
This workshop combines didactic and experiential explorations of clinical intuition from the integrative perspective of interpersonal neurobiology. We will examine our intuition as a bottom-up, implicit, nonconscious mode of communication. We will explore the evolutionary and developmental roots of intuition in mammalian limbic emotional and motivational circuits. Finally, we will use a play model of healing and growth in the therapeutic dialogue, using unconsciously orchestrated games that organize relational bids and rhythms of engagement, defence, and creative emergence.

CRACKED ORLANDO: DRAMMA PER MULTIMEDIA E FRACTALS
*New production presented by Arts Beyond the Machine with the Juilliard School’s Center for Innovation.
Jonathan Dawe‘s CRACKED ORLANDO is a delicate mini opera/ballet running approximately forty minutes and designed specifically for performance in a museum. Recasting energies and sounds of the Italian Baroque, this composition reforges references to early eighteenth century music through compositional workings based upon fractal geometry. A truly miniature work, aspects of the music and drama are distilled into crystallized moments, ranging from shimmering stasis to mercurial flashes. In keeping with these ideas, the text has been extracted from the libretto originally used by Vivaldi, and regrown using fractal methods as well.
Cracked Orlando from the epic fantastic tale by Ariosto, tells the story of Orlando, who in love with Angelica, pursues her to the island of the sorcerer Alcina, only to discover that she truly loves Medoro. Trapped within Alcina’s enchanted realm and distraught with profound jealousy and despair he is taken by great madness. His sickness resolves only when Alcina’s power is broken, all illusions are lifted, and her lush island is revealed as the barren desert it truly is.
