Date and Time: Saturday, May 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Presenters: Elizabeth Tuters, Sally Doulis, Susan Yabsley (Hincks-Dellcrest Children’s Mental Health Centre & Toronto Psychoanalytic Society)
Place: 40 St. Clair Avenue East, Suite 203, Toronto
Open to all.
Clinical case studies will be presented, starting with infant–parent relationships. Video clips will be shown focusing on the quality of the relationship as the primary factor of change in the treatment process.
The workshop will begin with a review of the key aspects of attachment theory, followed by a screening and discussion of the classical Robertson film Jane. We will then present two clinical approaches that demonstrate the way we work with troubled infant–parent relationships. This context helps us to better understand our adult patients who frequently have suffered from attachment disorders that cause intrapsychic and interpersonal problems (as will be demonstrated by the material).
Psychoanalysis in the past has not paid sufficient attention to the complexities of attachment disorders.
The workshop will be both didactic and experiential and will involve participants in the discussion of the presented clinical material and making links with their work and themselves as clinicians.
