Imprisoned States of Mind:

Treating the Untreatable

Synopsis: People who are incarcerated or experiencing psychosis have generally received "treatment" that primarily involves medicating and institutionalizing this feared “other.” At times, the mental health profession has been complicit in denying equal access to long-term, in-depth treatment. Presenters Elizabeth Kita, PhD, and Johanna Dobrich, LCSW-R will illustrate how psychodynamic treatment with marginalized, institutionalized, and criminalized individuals requires therapists to bear the unbearable, to tolerate our dread and “allow ourselves to feel in our own bones what the client feels but often cannot say (Berzoff, 2012).

Repairing the irreparable, bearing the unbearable:

Clinical work with formerly incarcerated people who have served life-sentences

一道本不卡免费高清Discussant: Huey Hawkins, LCSW

Synopsis: People who commit horrifying and irreparable acts such as murder are often assumed to not want to know what they have done; psychoanalysis suggests that perhaps they do not know how to know what they have done. In this paper, I discuss my clinical work with people who, sentenced to life after being convicted of murder, spent decades in prison and have now returned home to the community challenged to live life after serving life. I will explore the ways in which “lifers”, and the clinicians with whom they work, are confronted by unbearable truths related to the violence of both crime and punishment, the vital role of reparative capacity in resuming the growth that such traumas halt, and the hope that suffering can be transformed not just reenacted.

She obtained her MSW from UC Berkeley and her PhD from Smith College, School for Social Work. In addition to her clinical work, Beth teaches in the MSW program at UC Berkeley, and is the Co-Chair of the Coalition for Clinical Social Work.

Standing in the Twilight: A Relational Perspective on Working With(in) Psychotic States of Mind

一道本不卡免费高清Discussant: Santiago Delboy, LCSW, MBA

Synopsis: This paper explores the treatment of patients who present with imprisoned states of mind that do not easily lend themselves to a psychoanalytic process. A brief review of the uneasy relationship between psychoanalysis and psychotic/borderline states of mind will be provided, followed by a clinical case presentation in which an analyst works with a woman bound to a delusional world. If the capacity to mentalize is at the heart of reflective functioning and relationality, how does one facilitate this development when psychotic features dominate the landscape? Adopting a relational psychoanalytic approach, the clinical encounter will demonstrate how reflective use of the analyst’s ‘selves’ may potentiate the capacity for symbolization within the dyad. It will be argued that the capacity to symbolize is a necessary precursor to the development of a subjectively felt一道本不卡免费高清 sense of self and, that all individuals, no matter where they land on the neurotic-borderline-psychotic spectrum, are deserving of a treatment modality in which meaning- making and self-development are provided.
