Many of our patients suffer from various forms of developmental trauma. Whether their presenting problems are depression, anxiety, the inability to form meaningful relationships, or difficulty finding their direction in life, they live in the shadow of early relationships with misattuned caregivers. Intersubjectivity theory and infant research give us new ways of understanding and working with these patients. Intersubjectivity theory helps us to recognize developmental trauma in our adult patients, to identify the unconscious organizing principles that result from that trauma, and to understand…

As a result, licensing boards (e.g., the Board of Psychology and the Board of Behavioral Sciences) require regular updates for practicing professionals, and malpractice insurers are encouraging their insured members to regularly engage in continuing education on the topic. The purpose of this course is to…

Friday, March 13, March 27, & April 10, April 24, 2020 | 12:15 pm – 2:15 pm Narrative: Dreams have fallen off our professions map and we no longer turn to them for diagnostic and prognostic information, as healing traditions previously have. Since clinical training programs provide no education on empirical findings or creative dreamwork methods, therapists are left falling back on outdated and unsubstantiated notions such as that dreams are wish- fulfillment or pertain only to the dreamer; or therapists…

Healing the Self Through Affect Integration: An Intersubjective Approach
– by Jane Rubin, PhD [SEMINAR]

Fri October 16, 2020 | 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
$300 – $320

Narrative: What is the source of our patients’ suffering? How can we most effectively address it? There are as many psychoanalytic answers to these questions as there are psychoanalytic theories. From the perspective of intersubjectivity theory, many of the issues our patients struggle with—poor decision-making, difficulties establishing trusting relationships, addictions and other self-destructive behaviors, and more— are best understood as the consequence of their inability to experience a full range of affects. Intersubjectivity theory helps us understand why our patients have…
