    The Hidden Psychotic Core

    Free For Members & NYPSI Students

    Tuesday, March 8, 2016
    8:00 PM

    "The Hidden Psychotic Core" with Francis Baudry, MD

    Discussant: Otto Kernberg, MD

    In this paper presentation, Dr. Baudry will describe a clinical entity in which a primitive core is hidden behind what looks like a neurotic organization. In order to reach this core usual analytic attempts to search for meaning fail as the pathology of a traumatic nature occurs mostly during the pre-verbal period. Sensitivity to severe agonies, fear of disintegration and of falling apart, communication through action, and a greater reliance on counter-transference and on the repetition of traumatic scenarios in the analytic room need to be identified and managed. Three clinical vignettes will illustrate the challenging therapeutic task.
