ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION EVENT
Moderator: B. William Brennan, ThM, MA, LMHC
Respondents: Sandra B. Levy, Ph.D. & Robert Whitman-Raymond, LICSW
A common denominator when working with patients who exhibit primitive mental functioning – cases of borderline and narcissistic personality disorders, schizophrenia or autism – is the therapist’s difficulty in controlling strong induced countertransference feelings and impulses. The therapist tends to become overactive and intrusive. The following case attempts to shed light on this phenomenon.
After this intermediate/advanced presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Explain one major difference between classical and modern psychoanalysis.
2. Define modern psychoanalytic technique in terms of joining, mirroring and reflecting.
3. Identify object-oriented questions within a modern psychoanalytic framework.
