Presenter: Sydney F. Anderson, Ph.D.
This presentation will focus on the analytic work with George, a bright and talented adolescent who approaches analysisâ€”like the rest of his lifeâ€”without passion, effort, or full engagement. The clinical material will highlight the technical challenges that emerge in analytic work with adolescents in general, and with George in particular. Georgeâ€™s dreams will be highlighted as a window into his narcissistic vulnerabilities as well as his fears of becoming a competent adult man.
