    Dissociation, Repression and Splitting in Contrasting Theories of the Unconscious: A Clinical Discussion

    Wednesday, November 2, 2016
    8:00 PM

    Presenter: Marie Rudden, MD

    The author will discuss different ways in which the defenses of splitting, repression and dissociation are conceived within contrasting theories of the unconscious. She offers vignettes from analytic work with patients burdened by significant early traumas in order to illustrate (a) the value brought by different theoretical schools to work with such patients, but also (b) the value of clearly conceptualizing the use of these different defenses during their treatments.
