Discussion Group: Towards an Understanding of Loneliness and Aloneness at APsaA Winter Meetings in NCY

Posted December 7th, 2017 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements

Those who plan to attend the APsaA conference, at New York Midtown Hilton, in Feb. of 2018, we invite you to our clinical case discussion group: Towards an Understanding of Loneliness and Aloneness.

Dr. Danielle Knafo will present her clinical and theoretical material that describes her treatment of a singular young Japanese man, Hisoka, who epitomized the phenomenon of Hikikikomori. The hikikikomori are young people who live extremely solitary lives, never leaving their homes and hardly coming out of their rooms. At the onset of therapy, Hisoka only emerged for his therapy sessions and even then he hardly participated in a usual manner. The therapeutic work involved the creation of a safe holding space within which Hisoka learned to face the derailments of his early attachments and to engage in a mutual relationship. He gradually took steps to interact with the analyst and the outside world. The experience transformed both him and the analyst.

SOME COMPLICATIONS IN TREATING BAD FATHERS
PRESENTER: ASHER KAHN, Ph.D.

Working with fathers can be rewarding, fascinating, and challenging, particularly when they present as “bad fathers.” Within the dynamic makeup of these patients, there are some common threads. They can present as abusive, authoritarian, and bullying while, at the same time, they experience a deep and pervasive need for tenderness, understanding and love.

Dr. Kahn will share his work with patients who fit this category. He will discuss the challenges, and struggles with the clinical, transferential and counter-transferential dilemmas they present, such as: How can a therapist interact with these seemingly opposite Read the rest of this post »
