Dear Colleagues,

We invite those who are attending the above meetings to our Discussion Group # 108: Towards and Understanding of Loneliness and Aloneness

This group will explore loneliness as it appears in clinical work. Dr. Arthur Lynch will present his psychoanalytic work with an adult male patient who defensively avoided intimate connections. This case highlights the relationship between trauma and loneliness. The focus will be on the mid-phase of treatment and will include a summary of the patient’s history and the early phase of treatment.

The group should be of interest to psychoanalysts and psychotherapists who treat lonely and/orsocially isolated patients. Before the presentation, there will be a brief presentation on how we understand the overall topic.
