"Watch Me!" Understanding and the loss of understanding in a supervised child analytic case
In this seminar, Gabrielle Silver will present case material from the analysis of a young school age child. During the early stages of treatment the child's need to be watched and understood evolved revealing deficits in her experience of reflective functioning, self object differentiation, and reality fantasy exploration. During treatment a breakdown in the patient-analyst rapport occurred. Through the supervisor-supervisee work, this connection was explored and restored. Further exploration of transference and the watched state will be discussed by Dr. Gilmore.
