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.
