Description

“More Than One Can Live”: Reconceiving Harm and Reparation in the Intersubjective World

In the therapeutic process, we encounter impasses where one must seemingly harm or be harmed by the other, and it feels as though there is only room for one psyche to live. The concept of the moral Third is a way to think about a position from which to communicate, or step out of, the deep complementary structure underlying impasse. The moral Third can be defined as a representation of a lawful world of self and other that preserves attachment by repairing or acknowledging the inevitable violations of expected patterns. Such acknowledgment of misrecognition and injury is essential to repair, developmentally and therapeutically. Failure in this domain means that the need for such recognition is usually equated with being destructive to the needed other. In this light we will reread Klein’s ideas about reparation, translating them into the intersubjective view of disruption and repair, the co-creation of a meaningful world (representation) in which both can live.

This event offers 4 CE contact hours.
