Digging Deeper with an Anxious Adolescent at MITPP

Monday, March 19th, 2018

OPEN HOUSE LUNCHEON & CLINICAL PRESENTATION FOR THOSE CONSIDERING POSTGRADUATE TRAINING: DIGGING DEEPER WITH AN ANXIOUS ADOLESCENT
Wednesday, May 9, 2018 1:00 PM –2:30 PM

A 15 year-old girl sought treatment for severe anxiety believing her symptoms were related primarily to fears that she would not achieve academic success. Beneath her academic distress were issues independent of academic achievement including an insecure attachment to her parents, and an enmeshment communicated both emotionally and physically. At times the patient expressed her feelings about her parents through rage, and at other times guilt, pity, sadness and fear of loss. These shifting expressions were often dependent upon the interplay with her therapist. The therapist regularly experienced a sense of constriction in the room, and the feeling that she “couldn’t get it right” in responding to the patient. These interactions provided the therapist with clues about the patient’s need to remain connected and attached while simultaneously becoming an autonomous individual. (more…)

The Elusive Good Object with Lynne Zeavin at NYPSI

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

NYPSI’s 1028th Scientific Program Meeting: The Elusive Good Object with presenter Lynne Zeavin, Psy.D. and discussant Richard Zimmer, M.D.

The Elusive Good Object Presenter: Lynne Zeavin, Psy.D. Discussant: Richard Zimmer, M.D.
Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 8 pm New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute 247 East 82nd Street, NYC (btwn 2nd and 3rd Aves)

There are two distinct ways in which Melanie Klein writes about idealization. Insofar as she maintains that “The whole of [the infant’s] instinctual desires and his unconscious phantasies imbue the breast with qualities going far beyond the actual nourishment it affords,” and her increasingly stressed conviction that the libidinally invested breast, when introjected, forms ‘the core of the ego’, Klein is suggesting that the original good object must be experienced as ideal. Nothing less than this would adequately address ‘the whole of [the infant’s] instinctual desires.’ In this view, the infant projects his entire loving capacity, as well as his capacity for pleasure, onto the object and this is then introjected, together with the object’s actual goodness, to become his very core.

Meet the Author: Donald Moss at NYPSI

The Friends of the Brill Library invite you to Meet the Author: Donald Moss

Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 7:30 pm, New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute, The Marianne and Nicholas Young Auditorium
247 East 82nd Street | New York City, General Admission: $15, All proceeds support the A.A. Brill Library


Register HERE, visit nypsi.org or call 212.879.6900

The Friends of the Brill Library invite you to an evening with Donald Moss, MD, the author of At War with the Obvious: Disruptive Thinking in Psycho-analysis (Routledge, 2017).

The author situates each chapter of At War with the Obvious at the border between common and psychoanalytic sense. Cumulatively, the book argues that in order for psychoanalysis to retain its original vitality, it must continuously work against becoming “common sensical”.  Common sense – clinical and cultural – almost invariably obscures the uncommon/unconscious determinants that would expose its insufficiencies.  The most pointed expression of this border tension may be in the chapter, “The Insane Look of the Bewildered Half-Broken Animal.”

Copies of the book will be made available for purchase for $35 at the event.

Donald Moss, MD is a faculty member of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis, and is in private practice in New York City. He is also a member of the Green Gang, a four-person collective that studies the relationships between the human and non-human environments. He is currently the (more…)

The powerful challenges of treating a middle-aged, self-effacing, masochistic woman who tended to be a doormat in relationships will be described with a focus on the many trials such a treatment presented. The therapy lasted for two and a half years with a disappointing outcome and illustrates the dyad’s enactments and some of the difficulties of working with a highly defended, “neurotic” patient.

Overview:
Everything I have written can be understood as an effort to find a sufficiently passionate form of treatment. In one of the papers in my collection, Psychoanalytic Reflections: Training and Practice (2017, IP Books) I explore how profound feelings about life and health can be integrated into an analytic approach that also honors the concept of neutrality. In this talk I consider how the clinician can inspire active hope, engage in treatment emotionally, facilitate fighting depression, and other challenges.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to describe ways the clinician can integrate neutrality with a sufficiently emotionally engaged treatment approach. (more…)
