The “Not I” Patient with Susan Finkelstein of IPTAR

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

THE “NOT I” PATIENT: Instructor: Susan Finkelstein, LCSW, Wednesdays, October 18, 25 November 1,8,15, 830-10pm, 771 West End Avenue

The “Not I” patient is the clinical representation of the traumatized ‘ mouth’ depicted by Samuel Beckett in his play of the same name, whose experience of pain is disembodied and disowned. These sado-masochistic parts of the self become part of the transference /counter-transference dynamic but neither patient nor analyst are aware of them or want to experience them, resulting in mutual enactments.
The class will use clinical vignettes from both the instructor and participants to illustrate and understand the unconscious anxieties and primitive defense of projective identification of these unmetabolized experiences that prevent deeper understanding and working through. (more…)

Navagating Boundaries and Countertransference When Working with Children, and Adolescents and Their Parents with Shelly Petnov-Sherman at MITPP

Monday, September 18th, 2017

The Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, The Metropolitan Center for Mental Health and The Metropolitan Society of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists

Invite you to a Scientific Meeting: Friday, October 20, 2017 – 7:30 PM
NAVIGATING BOUNDARIES AND COUNTERTRANSFERENCE WHEN WORKING WITH CHILDREN, ADOLESCENTS AND THEIR PARENTS PRESENTER: SHELLY PETNOV-SHERMAN, LCSW

Treating children and adolescents can be extremely fulfilling and fun, as well as complex and difficult. Navigating the engagement of parents while maintaining confidentiality and boundaries can feel like “walking on a tightrope without a safety net.” This presentation will help facilitate and may challenge your understanding and knowledge of the dynamics involved in working with children and adolescents and their parents. Shelly Petnov-Sherman will use clinical material to illustrate these dynamics. She will also discuss her countertransference with this group of patients and how it has impacted and informed the treatment. This presentation will include how she came to this work and the trials she has endured, as well as how her ways of working have evolved over time.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will: 1) discuss how transference and countertransference can facilitate or make for impasses in working with children, adolescents and their parents/caregivers, 2) identify nuances of confidentiality and the impact of treatment with this population, and 3) discuss the importance of acknowledging, respecting and working with racial and ethnic values with children, adolescents and their families.
