About the Presentation

Join us for a case presentation and discussion of a man who suffered from a dramatic split between his inner self and his real life functioning. The result was a veneer of a normal, even exemplary character, camouflaging a darker, impulsive yet paradoxically freer side.

We will use a psychoanalytic object relations approach, including Winnicott’s concept of the False Self, to understand the patient’s dynamics. Session material will provide an opportunity to discuss how this theoretical approach can inform effective interventions. The goal of this presentation is to increase participants’ knowledge in clinical work with this challenging patient population.

There will be a Q&A where representatives from the Outreach Committee and PANY Faculty will be available for questions. Lunch will be served.

Couples Therapy Skills for the Dynamically Trained Clinician

It can be daunting for clinicians who work primarily with individuals to conduct therapy sessions with couples. Part of the challenge is shifting the focus of the clinical work from the dynamic mind of the individual to the dynamic created by the couple.
