OPEN HOUSE LUNCHEON & CLINICAL PRESENTATION
FOR THOSE CONSIDERING POSTGRADUATE TRAINING
WEDNESDAY, MAY 9, 2018
1:00 PM –2:30 PM
DIGGING DEEPER WITH AN ANXIOUS ADOLESCENT
A 15 year-old girl sought treatment for severe anxiety believing her symptoms were related primarily to fears that she would not achieve academic success. Beneath her academic distress were issues independent of academic achievement including an insecure attachment to her parents, and an enmeshment communicated both emotionally and physically. At times the patient expressed her feelings about her parents through rage, and at other times guilt, pity, sadness and fear of loss. These shifting expressions were often dependent upon the interplay with her therapist. The therapist regularly experienced a sense of constriction in the room, and the feeling that she “couldn't get it right” in responding to the patient. These interactions provided the therapist with clues about the patient's need to remain connected and attached while simultaneously becoming an autonomous individual.
Learning Objectives: Participants will identify 1) how models of separation-individuation and attachment-individuation can guide us in understanding adolescent anxiety, 2) how the patient's symptoms can be conceptualized using leading edge and trailing edge interpretations, 3) how our feelings and relational dynamics in the room with the patient can help us to better understand how the patient's symptoms are affecting relationships with peers and family.

A CLINICAL WORKSHOP: HELPING CHILDREN COPE
SATURDAY, MAY 12, 2018
PRESENTER: LISA DUBINSKY, PSY.D.
As mental health practitioners who work with vulnerable children and adolescents how do we decide the best ways to intervene? How do we choose the best modality and technique? When is it most effective to work primarily with the child with occasional parent guidance, and when is it best to focus more on parent work? In this workshop, Dr. Dubinsky will discuss these issues in the context of key developmental topics that are relevant for children and adolescents. Some of the topics include:
1. Social and Emotional Development: Frustration tolerance; problem-solving; play and social communication; friendships and conflict; development of empathy. 2. Transitions: Separation; transition difficulty between places, activities, bedtime and sleeping; family changes including new sibling, moving, new caretakers; parents’ separation and divorce; illness and death. 3. Self-Regulation: Modulation of affect; balanced schedule and electronic devices regulation (parent); developing an inner voice/observing ego. 4. Self-Esteem/Self-Concept: Body image; balance of self/other regard; externalization and internalization.
This workshop will help attendees gain understanding of developmentally appropriate stages of development and how to help children progress, gain understanding of how to work with parents around these issues, and gain a sense of how to intervene in helping children of various ages to cope.

THE AGING PSYCHOANALYST
PRESENTER: JOYCE SLOCHOWER, Ph.D., ABPP
Here’s a paradox: psychoanalytic practice focuses on the impact of early loss, trauma, and conflict as they inform and shape patient and analyst's experience in the present. Whatever our particular theory, we’re accustomed to making these links and helping people unpack and move beyond their personal ghosts. But there’s a future ghost that we avoid examining, no matter who we're working with. It is the ghost of who we will become—of our own aging. Most of us avoid dealing with the inevitability of growing old, much less our death. We avoid examining, much less theorizing, its impact on us as analysts. How will we manage the impending diminishment of capacity that often comes with aging? How will we help our patients confront this, and other actualities associated with aging? This presentation examines the impact—personal and theoretical—of aging on us as analysts. Dr. Slochower then considers how aging may affect our relationship to the work we do. Do we shift our theory or alter our adherence to it as we grow older, and if so, how?
Participants will: 1) be able to describe the central issues and conflicts raised by the prospect of aging, 2) understand how our avoidance of aging can close down the treatment experience, 3) be able to link changes in theory to changes in the analyst's perspective as he/she ages, 4) have a clearer understanding of the positive and negative ways that aging can affect the analyst's work.
