    PRESENTATION:

    Complex trauma symptoms differ from those of classic Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Judith Herman (1992) defines the key complex trauma symptoms as alterations in affect regulation, consciousness, self-perception, perception of the perpetrator, relationships to others, and in systems of meaning.  Complex psychological trauma in childhood develops from prolonged, chronic exposure to interpersonal traumatic experiences – physical, sexual and emotional torture. The perpetrator controls and manipulates the victim for their narcissistic pleasure, using denial to place the blame onto the child, and in turn creating long-lasting shame. Complex trauma causes the development of the personality to shift to one that has disorganized attachment as a foundation.

    Effective treatment approaches combine the use of psychodynamic psychotherapy with ego state therapy and EMDR. John G. Watkins, the originator of ego state therapy, defines it as “a psychodynamic approach in which techniques of group and family therapy are employed to resolve conflicts between various ego states that constitute a family of self within a single individual” (1993). Francine Shapiro, the originator of EMDR, found that memories of traumatic events are stored in the limbic system of the brain. The bilateral processing with EMDR helps to release them so that they can be reprocessed and desensitized. The clinical case presentations illustrate this approach during treatment.

    PRESENTER:

    Sandra Shuleshko is a licensed mental health counselor located in Port St. Lucie FL.  She comes to psychotherapy as a second profession following 22 years working in research and development in the aerospace industry.  She found that working alongside engineers prepared her to work with complex clients. She is a nationally certified counselor (NCC), a certified addictions professional (CAP), and a certified eating disorders specialist (CEDS) through the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals. She completed EMDR training in 2005 through the International Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Institute, Inc. She is a member of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, and specializes in the treatment of complex posttraumatic stress disorder and the dissociative disorders .  Her experience includes Dissociative Identity Disorder, and Dissociative Amnesia caused by ritual abuse and mind control organized abuse.  She also treats addictions and eating disorders.

    OBJECTIVES:
    1. Explain how EMDR adds to the psychotherapeutic treatment of complex trauma and dissociative states.
    2. Describe the difficulties and challenges clinician's face when treating complex trauma and dissociation.
    3. Discuss how the patient is helped to integrate self-states successfully.

    PRESENTATION

    Extending the boundaries of psychoanalytic technique in work with individuals inhabiting extreme states requires creativity and flexibility in the therapeutic relationship.  The therapist must be willing to enter into unknown territory with responsive spontaneity and individualized originality.  This is the realm of relational artistry.

    To creative approach to the therapeutic relationship, Dr. Gorney will first focus his investigation on the life and clinical contributions of Otto Will.  Dr. Will was an extraordinarily original and courageous psychotherapist who drew inspiration from his analysts—Harry Stack Sullivan and Frieda Fromm-Reichmann—from his clinical work at Chestnut Lodge and Austen Riggs, and from his own personal struggles with attachment, separation and disruption.  Otto Will developed a highly imaginative approach to psychoanalytic psychotherapy as a singular form of relational performance art, particularly when working in the zone of trauma and madness.  Dr. Will’s legacy will be explicated via a consideration of his life and career, firsthand accounts of his capacity for therapeutic genius, and a review of his significant clinical writings.

    Dr. Gorney will provide three extensive case examples from his own practice, influenced and inspired by the deeds and teaching of Otto Will.  This material will illustrate how a creative utilization of the therapeutic relationship can be transformative in the treatment of extreme states.  The artistry of relationship will be explored in regard to working with traumatic states, psychotic transference, and unformulated or unrepresented experience.  Ample time will be provided for group clinical discussion and reflection.

    PRESENTER

    James E. Gorney, Ph.D. is in independent practice in Knoxville, Tennessee.  A graduate of the William Alanson White Institute for Psychoanalysis in New York, he is the author of numerous presentations and papers on Winnicott, Lacan, self-psychology and innovations in psychoanalytic technique.  Dr. Gorney served on the staff of the Austen Riggs Center and has taught at New York Hospital-Cornell, Duquesne University, and the University of Tennessee.  He is past president of the Appalachian Psychoanalytic Society and has been a recipient of the Hans Strupp Award for excellence in psychoanalytic education.

    OBJECTIVES

    1. Describe Otto Will’s innovative approaches to the treatment of madness via an artistry of relationship. 
    2. Understand the focal importance of human relatedness in the inflicting and healing of trauma.
    3. Describe techniques which facilitate the creation of transitional space when psychotic phenomena emerge within the clinical situation.
    4. Understand the critical task in psychotherapy of the co-creation of symbolic meaning and the eventual capacity for thinking with patients inhabiting unrepresented states.

    PRESENTATION

    In the first part of the presentation I will begin with an exploration of Ireland’s Great Hunger. Looking particularly through the prism of my own family experience growing up in Ireland, I will illustrate the ways in which the psychological sequelae of that trauma live on in the psychic lives of Irish people and the Irish diaspora. I will explore the implications of spectral presences, ghostly echoes, and uninvited guests in our lives, and in our patients’ lives. I will examine the consequences for the future professional and relational life of a child who, growing up in the shadow of psychic deadness, is, in the words of Andre Green, simply “forbidden to be”. What kind of relational conundrums does such a child—later adult—present in therapy as she/he grapples with impossible mourning for an inherited loss?

    Following discussion, I will move to the second part of my presentation, which will focus on clinical work with children. Drawing on my own clinical work, including slides of children’s drawings, I will illustrate the ways in which the suffering of parents is, in the words of Judith Kestenberg, transposed into the child. I will offer clinical examples of how desire may be fostered in a child who has previously failed to experience his or her own experience, and whose only form of living is through ventriloquation of parental desire—a desire experienced by the child as an anxiety-producing demand.
