Hope and Dread, Shame and Dignity in the Therapeutic Relationship | 16th GEI Annual Conference

Lynne Jacobs, Ph.D., Psy.D.
presented by Groupe d'étude sur l'intersubjectivité (GEI)

Time: 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Location: Le Nouvel Hôtel, 1740 René-Lévesque Boul. West, Montreal, QC

Many of our patients know indignity all too well. They enter our office suffused with shame, sometimes conscious, sometimes not. Shame in its many forms, from embarassement to mortification to humiliation, can be considered the primary emotion of indignity. How can we address this shame without humiliating them further? How can we help restore or give a sense of dignity to those patients? Drawing on the insights of contemporary relational psychoanalytic theories and contemporary gestalt theory, Dr Lynne Jacobs offers a therapeutic perspective that integrates the immediate affective engagement of the humanistic approach with an on-going sensitivity to the dynamics of enduring relational themes and patterns in the therapeutic relationship.

Learning objectives
At the conclusion of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

• Differentiate and describe traditional and contemporary perspectives on transference in the therapeutic relationship
• Identify and explain the oscillations between hope and dread in the clinical process
• Identify and describe how shame and dignity are linked to enduring relational themes
• Recognize the interplay of the therapist’s and patient’s enduring relational themes

About the Presenter:

Lynne Jacobs, Ph.D., has long been interested in the relational dimension of psychotherapy, and in integrating humanistic theories with contemporary psychoanalytic theories. She is also interested in what it means to practice as a white therapist in culturally diverse environments. Both a gestalt therapist and a psychoanalyst, she is a co-founder of the Pacific Gestalt Institute (PGI) and faculty and training analyst at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis (ICP) in Los Angeles CA. She teaches at ICP, and teaches gestalt therapists locally, nationally, and internationally. She has published two books (with Rich Hycner) and numerous articles in both realms.
