Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute & Society

2003 Visiting Professor - Jane Kite, Ph.D.

Community-wide program of teaching and outreach

The Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute has a long tradition of inviting nationally and internationally prominent teachers and clinicians to the Detroit area to share their thinking and experience with the greater mental health community.  The Visiting Professor of Psychoanalysis Program is an annual opportunity for a distinguished analyst to meet with Institute and Society members, educational programs in psychiatry and psychology, as well as community social and mental health agencies.  This intensive, weeklong program is the only one of its kind in American psychoanalysis, and is typical of the type of innovative outreach activities of which Michigan’s Institute has become widely known.

This year we are delighted and fortunate to announce that MPI’s 2003 Visiting Professor of Psychoanalysis will be Jane Kite, Ph.D. Training and Supervising Analyst from the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute.  Dr. Kite will be in the Detroit Metropolitan area during the week of April 7-12, 2003.

Dr. Kite has been teaching and supervising in hospital, clinical and psychoanalytic settings for 25 years.  Her areas of interest include the relations of psychoanalysis and creative writing, ‘medical’ versus ‘psychological’ approaches to treatment, and the effect training and character have on our convictions about treatment.  Dr. Kite has earned a well-deserved reputation as an impressive clinician and speaker who can clearly communicate her ideas in a warm, witty, forthright and engaging manner.

Dr. Kite will offer a series of lectures on a variety of clinical topics, as well as utilizing more informal formats such as clinical conferences.  With Dr. Kite’s ability to engage clinicians at all levels, this should be a stimulating and exciting week.  The majority of the events are open to the general public.

This year Dr. Kite will be co-sponsored by the psychiatry and psychology departments at the University of Michigan, Wayne State University, Michigan State University, University of Detroit Mercy, and Madonna University, as well as by the Michigan Psychoanalytic  Society, the Michigan Psychoanalytic Council, Henry Ford Hospitals, Starfish Family Services, the Candidates’ Organization and the Student and Trainee Association (SATA) of the Society.
