    PRESENTATION:

    The Champlain Towers South Collapse in Surfside, Florida, claimed the lives of 98 residents and left traumatic loss, grief, and psychological sequelae in its wake. The initial crisis response involved practical, targeted efforts aimed at search and rescue, and providing psychological first aid for victims’ families, witnesses, survivors, and community members. The long-term response consisted of grief counseling and trauma work.

    The collapse represented a unique opportunity for implementing an integrated strategy between two distinct groups of responders represented by numerous organizations. Mental health professionals embodied one group whose explicit role was to provide emotional support and containment. The other group comprised search and rescue professionals responsible for actively dismantling the collapsed pile, who ended up in roles requiring they also provide psychological containment. Response efforts were guided by existing frameworks for crisis response and evolved with the changing needs of those impacted. Upon reflecting on the tragedy, it became clear that the mechanisms by which the rescue and mental health response frameworks coalesced and functioned were more implicit and organically synchronous than explicitly coordinated and agreed-upon. This event highlighted the value and utility of integration and interdisciplinary work in responding to these types of disasters. As the rescue and support efforts were implemented, and a unique “Surfside Collapse Community” emerged, key themes became clear and revealed intrinsic links between the first-responder/search and rescue and psychological strategies. Relevant psychodynamic concepts underpinned, and were observed, in the integrated strategy that was utilized.

    PRESENTER:

    Dr. Cassie Feldman is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in Bay Harbor Islands, FL and an adjunct professor in the College of Psychology at Nova Southeastern University. She serves on the board of directors as President of The Southeast Florida Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology. She also is an affiliate of Baptist West Kendall Hospital where she is responsible for training residents in the Family Medicine program. Dr. Feldman responded to the Surfside building collapse providing acute services to survivors and victims’ families as a volunteer through Cadena International, a non-profit organization dedicated to rescue, humanitarian aid, and disaster response and prevention worldwide. She also provides ongoing, long-term care to those impacted by the collapse.

    OBJECTIVES:

    Participants will be able to: 

    1. Participants will be able to describe therapeutic intervention tools that were used in the acute aftermath and as part of the long-term psychological response of the Champlain towers collapse including with respect to grief and loss.
    2. Participants will be able to describe the importance of utilizing and implementing an interdisciplinary strategy in the context of disaster response including working with other first responders.
    3. Participants will be able to articulate psychoanalytic concepts and themes that were relevant in the context of the collapse.

    THE PRESENTATION:

    Clinical supervisors want to ensure that their mentoring is effective and helpful. Until recently, there has been a widespread assumption that any well-trained therapist or analyst is a potentially good supervisor. But both empirical and experiential data suggest that supervisors differ in their effectiveness, that supervisory effectiveness can be increased, and that supervisees keep more secrets from supervisors than supervisors suspect. This seminar will help supervisors become more skilled at fostering developmental processes in supervision and increasing supervisee confidence in frankly presenting clinical work and personal reactions.

    THE PRESENTER:

    Nancy McWilliams is a distinguished affiliate faculty member at Rutgers University’s Graduate School of Applied & Professional Psychology. She has a private practice in Lambertville, NJ, and is author of Psychoanalytic Diagnosis (1994; rev. ed. 2011), Psychoanalytic Case Formulation (1999), Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (2004), and Psychoanalytic Supervision (2021), all with Guilford Press. 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 APA’s Division 39 (Psychoanalysis), she is on the editorial board of Psychoanalytic Psychology.

    A graduate of the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis, Dr. McWilliams is also affiliated with the Center for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis of New Jersey and is on the Board of Trustees of the Austen Riggs Center. She is an honorary member of the American Psychoanalytic Association, the Moscow Psychoanalytic Society, the Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy of Turin, Italy, and the Warsaw Scientific Association for Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. She has appeared in three APA videos of master therapists and was a plenary speaker for the 2015 APA convention. Her writings have been translated into 20 languages, and she has taught in 30 countries.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES: After this seminar, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe two styles of supervision that may be damaging to the growth and integrated self-confidence of the supervisee;
    2. Articulate three ways that supervisors can increase the sense of safety in their mentees, leading to more frank and less defensive descriptions of clinical process.
    The fee is $80 for all categories of membership.
