Location: Via Zoom Videoconference

Home, Homelessness, and Immigration

What might contribute to our subjectively feeling at home in the world? What leads to the loss of one’s psychic sense of home which in turn results in us feeling psychically unmoored in the world? These are some of the questions we will ponder together. Focus will be on the psychic loss of home even though the structural (literal) loss of home will be addressed by looking at the impact of immigration on the sense of belonging.

Presenter: Rajiv Gulati, MD

CME/CE Credits Available: 1.5

About the Speaker(s)

Rajiv Gulati, MD is a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Psychoanalytic Association of New York.

He co-edited the book, “EROTICISM: Developmental, Cultural, and Clinical Realm,” with Dr. Salman Akhtar. Dr. Gulati maintains a private analytic practice in Brooklyn.

Sadomasochism; Understanding and Working with the Self-Defeating Patient

Self-defeating behaviors are present to some degree in every psychodynamic treatment. We will explore ways in which sadomasochism manifests, particularly in the transference/countertransference arena. The developmental roots and psychodynamic underpinnings will be illuminated through clinical examples. The goal will be to fortify practitioners for what are often long and difficult treatments.

About the Presentation

In this era of increasing recognition that most individuals who enter our consulting rooms are struggling with symptoms that mark developmental impasses, we encounter bright individuals who appear to have the capacity for reflective thought but there is often insufficient grounding in integrating thoughts and feelings to learn from experience. In that context, adaptive efforts that fail to resolve the underlying dilemma tend to become addictive. Such difficulties have been traced to inconsistent parenting that leaves the child insufficiently able to mindfully attend to internal and external cues, impeding the symbolization of experience so essential for interpersonal communications and relationships.

From this perspective, eating disorders become addictive because the behaviors cannot resolve the underlying deficits. These deficits can be traced to parental failures across the generations that cannot be recognized and worked with, leaving subsequent generations inhibited in the development of self-regulatory functions and the progressive differentiation of self from other so crucial to maturation. Eating disorders mark early disturbance in relation to what it means to take in and make use of what is offered by another. We will note commonalities and differences in the anorexic versus the bulimic dilemma, recognizing that each position may be seen as a waystation along the road to self-development in relation to overly intrusive and/or neglectful parents.

Explorations into the metacognitive and affective difficulties associated with eating disorders can provide useful anchors for our efforts to create space for development in our consulting rooms. Case examples will explore some of the dynamics underlying such difficulties and the value of interactive modeling of reflective capacities and of creative, playful engagement in effecting change.
