Carolyn Ellman and Steven Ellman
Toronto Psychoanalytic Society & Institute
Place: Hart House, University of Toronto
Steven Ellman will discuss his theory of endogenous stimulation, which affects how both normal and pathological envy develop in children, producing differences between "Kleinian" and "Winnicottian" babies. In the afternoon, Carolyn Ellman will elaborate on the theory of normal as well as destructive envy and offer some case examples of patients with high endogenous stimulation and its effect on their ability to handle envy. Together, Steven and Carolyn Ellman will then integrate these ideas into a theory of technique with these patients.
