Presenter: Shuli Sandler, Psy.D.
Discussants: Ted Jacobs, M.D. and Christine Anzieu-Premmereur, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Shuli Sandler will present a brief history and specific process notes from an ongoing analysis, which will be followed by a dialogue with two discussants. First, picking up on particular transference/ countertransference themes, resistances, or developmental struggles, Dr. Christine Anzieu will offer an “imagined” scenario of how the clinical process may evolve over time. Second, Dr. Ted Jacobs will respond to the whole case, combining the “imagined,” the “real” material, and theories underlying this patient's struggles, in order to explore, with Dr. Sandler, how the case is unfolding in real time. This format is intended to open up a discussion with the audience to consider how one might speculate about an analytic case, and how speculation may be helpful, dangerous, or both.
A Reception will follow the presentation.
