Co-editor with Barnet Malin, MD of: Wilfred Bion: Los Angeles Seminars and Supervision, (Karnac, 2013) Dr Aguayo also led a CIPS seminar on Clinical Bion last year. He participated last summer in a panel presentation on aspects of Bionâ€™s work in his late, California period at the IPA Congress in Prague (Tobias, IJPA, 2013). He will publish his invited lecture on Bionâ€™s work on memory and desire, presented recently at both the British Psychoanalytical Society in London and the Societat Espanyola de Psychoanalisi in Barcelona (Aguayo, IJPA, in press). He will also present at the International Bion Conference in Los Angeles in October 23rd and 25th as well at the IPTAR Bion Conference in New York on November 21st and 22nd. He is now also a guest member of the British Psychoanalytic Society. This piece reviews Aguayoâ€™s work on Bionâ€™s clinical thought with these various analytic audiences. LT: You found different audiences for your work on Bion in these recent lecturesâ€"can you share some of your thoughts about your experiences? JA: Yes, speaking broadly, Bionâ€™s work is generally more well-known and accepted in Europe and South America than it is here in the United States. (There are obvious exceptions, such as Los Angeles, where some of Bionâ€™s analysands, such as Jim Grotstein, James Gooch and Michael Paul live and publish on his work). Yet this scene in America is also changing.

Dr. Joseph Aguayo is pleased to return to IPTAR to present a full-day program on Bion's work on Saturday, December 3rd, 2016. Here Aguayo takes up Bion's final, mature clinical thought, adding examples from his own analytic cases. He maintains that Bion's innovations in technique set the stage for the developments made by others, such as the contemporary Klein group in London. Joseph Aguayo, Ph.D. is a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Psychoanalytic Center of California, also in private practice in west Los Angeles. He is a Guest Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society in London and holds UCLA doctorates in both Clinical Psychology and European History.
Dr. Aguayo will discuss the only two clinical seminars ever given by Wilfred Bion in the United States: the Los Angeles Seminars and Supervision in 1967; and the IPTAR Seminars in New York City in 1977.
The presenter's interest lies primarily in bringing clinical Bion to the fore and in examining some of Bion's ground-breaking concepts when he first introduced them in the 1960's and 70's. On Friday evening, Dr. Aguayo will take up the clinical and technical implications of Bion's ideas as he attempted to make these ideas accessible to classically-trained audiences unfamiliar with his work. On Saturday morning a panel of IPTAR analysts who attended Bion's 1977 seminars will recount their experiences hearing Bion for the first time. Dr. Aguayo will then present case material that highlights Bion's technique in his work with near psychotic patients. This Conference is a rare opportunity to learn about Wilfred R. Bion's historical presentations in Los Angeles and New York. Dr. Aguayo will also present his own clinical notes and interventions to distinguish Bionian interpretations from Kleinian interpretations. Discussion of pre-circulated paper by Dr. Joseph Aguayo of Bion's seminars in LA and NY. Bion's recorded voice will be played from tape recorded session vignettes in LA 1967. Dr. Aguayo will facilitate discussion among the participants in attendance. Clinical Case Presentation: Dr. Aguayo will discuss his own case material and process notes to emphasize specific Bionion interventions in work with near psychotic patients.
