Extension Program Chair
This course will provide an overview of past and current concepts of dissociation and dissociative disorders, emphasizing their application to psychoanalytic work with a variety of patients. Topics include the connection of dissociation to trauma, the etiology and manifestation of traumatic (unformulated) memories, adaptive versus non-adaptive dissociation, and the representation of internalized attachment patterns in dissociated self- states. The instructors will present case material related to Dissociative Identity Disorder to illustrate theoretical, diagnostic and treatment issues.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this activity participants should be able to:
- Understand how early trauma can lead to the development of dissociated and contradictory self-states.
- Recognize dissociative defenses and symptoms.
- Distinguish between repression and dissociative processes and between declarative and procedural memory.
- Better negotiate treatment issues, such as the therapeutic use of the analytic frame and the holding environment, the role of primitive communication, and the management of regressive phenomena.
- Develop ways to understand, tolerate and work effectively with intense transference and countertransference dynamics.
