“Works in Progress” Seminar Series

Two Psychology Trainees Discuss Their Dissertations

Wednesday, September 6, 2017
8:00 PM

This works in progress seminar will be devoted to presentations by two NYPSI trainees who will discuss their dissertations and research.

Jessica Wolman, Ph.D.: "Aliveness and Deadness in the Therapeutic Process"

Based on the theories of Winnicott, Ogden and Green amongst others, Dr. Wolman will present 5 clinical cases and show the application of the ideas of these thinkers to her clinical material.

Kate Mannix, M.A.: "Narcissism and the Response to Interpersonal Dependency"

Based in part on some ideas of Melanie Klein, Ms. Mannix hypothesizes that narcissism is often a defense against feelings of dependency. In her work she will show by using a variety of measures that when narcissistic individuals are asked to recall thoughts or emotions resulting from dependency on another person, they will show an increased use of defense mechanisms.

No charge. All are welcome.

Scientific Program Meeting

Meeting the Challenge of Treating Atypically-Wired Children using Psychoanalysis

Free For Members & NYPSI Students

Tuesday, September 12, 2017
8:00 PM

Presenter: Susan Sherkow, M.D.
Discussants: Alexander Kalogerakis, M.D. and Robert Scharf, M.D.

This presentation aims to demonstrate the confluence of psychoanalysis and neuroscience, in the context of the internalization process in neurodevelopment. Dr. Sherkow will present clinical material from the analytic treatment of an “atypically wired” five and a half year old boy, focusing on the child’s mental representational world, and shedding light on: 1) distortions in the child’s mental representation of mother and being mothered, caused in part by atypical neurocircuitry; 2) the impact of these distortions on the mother, the child, and the mother-child relationship; 3) how these distortions come through in the transference; and 4) how psychoanalysis can help “rewire” the brain to allow for a secure internalization of the mother.

2 CME/ CE credits offered.
