    THE PRESENTATION:

    This workshop will focus on issues of mortality and human limitation as they affect both therapist and patient in the clinical process. Dr. McWilliams will explore issues of aging in the therapist, including practical and ethical challenges for those of us facing the diminishments of later life (e.g., cognitive decline, hearing loss, diminution of energy).  She will also note some clinical advantages of being an elderly therapist (e.g., breadth of knowledge, wisdom, humility, sense of proportion, increased compassion), drawing attention, in this context, to the difference between knowledge and wisdom. She will address aging in patients, including issues of diagnosis and treatment, with special reference to the section on “Later Life” in the second edition of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual – the only international classification system that includes attention to the elderly. Finally, she will highlight, in work with patients of any age, the therapeutic benefits of acknowledging and mourning limitation. The emphasis throughout will be on clinical applications of the material; clinical vignettes will illustrate the concepts considered. Two case presentations of patients in later life will be addressed in depth, with ample opportunity for audience participation in the discussion.


    THE PRESENTER:

She has edited, coauthored, or contributed to several other books, and is Associate Editor of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (2006; 2nd ed. 2017).  A former president of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association, she is on the editorial board of Psychoanalytic Psychology. Dr. McWilliams is a graduate of the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis and is also affiliated with the Center for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis of New Jersey.

    Awards include the Gradiva prize (1999), the Goethe Scholarship Award (2012), the Rosalee Weiss award for contributions to practice (2004), the Laughlin distinguished teacher award (2007), the Hans Strupp Award for teaching, practice and writing (2014), and the Division 39 awards for both Leadership (2005) and Scholarship (2012).

     OBJECTIVES: After this workshop, participants will be able to:

    1. Articulate three common professional misconceptions about working with elderly patients.
    2. Explicate the different life tasks for individuals who are respectively “young old” (ages 55-64) “middle old” (65-74), “old old” (75-84), and “oldest old (85+).
    3. Use the “Later Life” section of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (Guilford, 2017) to conceptualize central psychological issues in elderly patients.
    4. Identify three professional challenges that confront aging therapists.
    5. Discriminate conceptually between knowledge and wisdom.

    Special Sunday Symposium

    PRESENTER:   Dan Sheridan, Ph.D.

    Sunday, February 24, 2019

    10:00 am - 1:30pm

    At the home of Barbara Lurie

    THE PRESENTATION:

    The establishment of a cohesive and secure sense of self is a critical developmental task. Through the lens of Self Psychology, the selfobject needs of mirroring, idealizing, and twinship facilitate the development of this cohesive self and allow an individual to successfully interact with the world while also feeling a sense of belongingness and connection with others. For lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer (LGBQ) people, however, the development of a cohesive self presents unique challenges not faced by heterosexual people as the selfobject needs of mirroring, idealizing, and twinship may be thwarted by experiences of discrimination, rejecting coming-out experiences or concealment, and one’s own internalized homophobia/heterosexism. Such ongoing failures of responsive selfobject experiences can result in significant emotional distress and provide a framework for understanding disproportionate rates of mental health illness and substance abuse within this community.

    This presentation will draw from Self Psychology principles to provide a conceptualization of LGBQ sexual orientation/identity as the emergence of self which requires the responsive selfobject needs of mirroring, idealizing, and twinship. LGBQ-specific issues of discrimination, disclosure/concealment, and internalized homophobia/heterosexism will also be included as they relate to the development of self for LGBQ people. Clinical considerations of transference/countertransference, resistance, and rupture—repair when working therapeutically with LGBQ patients will also be discussed with opportunities for sharing of clinical material. 

    PRESENTER:

    Dr. Daniel Sheridan is a licensed psychologist in private practice in Miami, Florida and Clinical Director for the Children’s Bereavement Center. As a clinician, Dr. Sheridan has trained in community mental health clinics and university counseling centers treating a wide arrange of presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, LGBTQ+ issues, trauma, and substance use. Dr. Sheridan works with adolescents, adults, individuals, and couples. As a researcher, Dr. Sheridan has examined the impact of discrimination, internalized heterosexism, and the coming-out process on the health and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community. His work has been published in peer-reviewed journals and he has presented at several national conferences. Dr. Sheridan also sits on the board of directors as treasurer for the Southeast Florida Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology.

    OBJECTIVES:

    At the end of this presentation, participants will:

    1)      Increase their knowledge regarding the history of mental health treatment for LGBQ people

    2)      Be able to explain the impact of discrimination, disclosure/concealment, and internalized homophobia/heterosexism on the health and well-being of LGBQ people

    3)      Apply Self Psychology principles of mirroring, idealizing, and twinship in conceptualizing presenting concerns for LGBQ people seeking mental health treatment

    THE PRESENTATION:

    Sigmund Freud was torn about civilization— indeed, he was one of “its discontents,” the term he used in the title of his influential work, Civilization and its Discontents. According to Lionel Trilling, Freud had a “quarrel with culture.” Though he recognized that “greater security and union with other people” i.e., belonging, is an advantage of civilization, in Trilling’s view, Freud also sought to establish a place for the self to stand apart from culture. Although he was unable to find a place for the resistant, quarrelsome self within his theory of normal development, Freud understood--at least in a nascent, unformulated way--that there is a normative part of the self that has an adverse relationship with culture. Yet the centrality and significance of this dimension of the self and its struggle with culture has largely eluded the grasp of psychoanalysts.

    An accumulating body of knowledge within psychoanalysis (from a wide array of relational theories), along with contemporary evolutionary biological perspectives and Trilling’s insights, helps us see that the relationship between the self and culture involves an ongoing negotiation between two deeply rooted longings. Simply put, human beings want to be a part of culture and stand apart from culture. We have an intrinsic desire to engage with culture and an equally intrinsic desire to disengage from culture. These desires correspond to different aspects of our selves—a part that is intrinsically social and cultural and a part that, as Winnicott conceptualized it, wants to be free from influence by external reality. Because of the double-edged, ambivalent nature of our relationship with culture, we are continually challenged to find ways to live with dual--at times dueling— longings. Creating a viable balance between these longings-- to be a part of culture and to be apart from culture--poses a major psychological challenge throughout life.

    I will demonstrate, through clinical and biographical vignettes, that the ability to quarrel with culture and to value discontent--and to make use of adaptive apartness--play an essential role in everyday experience, psychological development, motivation, and emotional suffering, and that understanding this dimension has important implications for how we think about our patients and practice psychoanalytic therapy.
