November 18, 2022 — Surrender
Henry Markman notes that in order to gain presence with patients we need to surrender and mourn as analysts—to give up and let go of attachments that protect yet constrict us in that they do not allow for openness to the patient’s world. This surrender allows for transformation and moments of beauty both in us and in our patients.
Henry Markman is a psychoanalyst in private practice in Berkeley, California. He is also a Training and Supervising Analyst at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis. He cites many influences to his work and notes that through his 30 year of practice and teaching he has considered many and expanded on ways of being with and relating to others.
