DEPRESSION AS AN OBSTACLE TO CHANGE: TREATING A WOMAN SUFFERING FROM LIFELONG MAJOR DEPRESSIVE DISORDER

A 62-year-old professional woman was referred by Columbia Presbyterian for treatment for depression after she had spent eight weeks there in a double-blind study. At the time treatment began, she could barely function, overwhelmed by depression, anxiety and despair. She struggled with feelings of recurring debilitating depression, with feelings of worthlessness and crippling envy, and with impulsive rage. Highly sensitive to separation and loss, she had an incapacitating fear of abandonment. Through clinical material we will explore the ways in which her depressive affects affected the treatment and the transference/countertransference matrix.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to 1) understand depression as an expression of disavowed anger, 2) recognize how childhood loss and trauma manifest in present-day, impaired relationships, 3) examine ways in which negativity and feelings of worthlessness serve to preclude autonomy and agency.

PRESENTER: Barbara Spiridon, M.S.Ed, MSJ. Certificates in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Adult and Child and Adolescent Programs. Candidate for NYS LP Certification in Psychoanalysis. Member: Metropolitan Society for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists. Former faculty: Queens College (CUNY) Graduate Program in Education; Former secondary school administrator and teacher, adult education teacher, training consultant and communications consultant.
