“Psychic skin” denotes the psychological boundary between inner and outer worlds. Dr. Brian Feldman will present case material showing the development of psychic skin in early life and its implications for clinical care. The emergence of primary (healthy) and secondary (defensive) functions of the psychic skin will be viewed through the lens of infant observation research. Using multicultural videos and artwork from adult patients, Feldman will correlate infant development with adult primitive mental states experienced in the clinical setting.
