LISTENING TO CLINICAL PROCESS
The Analyst's Shame: Collapsing into a One-Person Psychology

Presenter: Jennifer Leighton, CSW

Date: Wednesday, October 24, 2001 at 8:15 PM

Facilitator: Dorienne Sorter, PhD

This series highlights self psychological principles of treatment through close examination of particular clinical moments from cases presented by APSP members. Jennifer Leighton will present a treatment failure where a difficult patient’s unconscious affective communication triggered in the analyst a terrible loss of selfobject connection. A dysphoric state was evoked in the analyst, who could not fully process this traumatic repetition until some time after termination.


THE EXTRAMARITAL AFFAIR: A LANGUAGE OF YEARNING AND LOSS

Presenter: Susanne M. Weil, LCSW 

Date: Wednesday, February 20, 2002

Time: 8:15 PM

This paper will present an extramarital relationship as an experience of self-enhancement not of pathological conflict and will suggest that the simultaneous relationship with the lover AND an empathically attuned therapist can be healing for the patient. Rather than seen as a reality-escaping midlife enactment, Susanne Weil believes that these relationships can be better thought of as efforts to revisit the traumatic experiences that have created the organizing patterns that have limited a patient’s self development. An extramarital affair, as she sees it, is often about yearning and loss and the freedom to enact one’s own desire.


CLOSE READINGS OF TEXTS: ATTACHMENT THEORY AND RESEARCH

Presenter: Shelley Doctors, PhD

Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2002

Time: 8:15 PM

Shelley Doctors will continue her revealing explications of texts relevant to self psychology. There has been much recent interest in the application of the results of attachment theory and research, as witnessed by the well attended presentation by Joseph Lichtenberg and Shelley’s wait-listed discussion of a paper by Arietta Slade last spring. Because of this interest, Shelley will offer another germane paper on attachment for discussion this year.
