The Therapist’s Use of Subjectivity in Contemporary Clinical Practice

Dr. Lewis Aron
presented by TICP

This daylong workshop will focus on fluctuations of identity and shifting self-states in the clinician and their “dramatization.” The workshop will trace the tradition from Sándor Ferenczi to Harold Searles and contemporary relational psychoanalysis. I will focus on the clinical contributions of Searles who I have described as “the American answer to Sandor Ferenczi.” Searles is the missing link, too infrequently credited, between the Ferenczian tradition and the current relational approach.

This paper describes a group of post-traumatic defenses which use the atemporal character of post-traumatic functioning. It begins with a brief description of a form of mental functioning that follows from trauma, which the author has previously termed the zero process.
