Event description

Description

An adolescent with a history of childhood sexual abuse within the family has recently been sexually assaulted and is referred for treatment by her university’s victim services team. This treatment highlights the challenges ––and ultimate successes–– I experience integrating psychoanalytic theory into trauma-focused work with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Kate enters treatment as the #MeToo movement sweeps our cultural consciousness –– a moment in time when my sense of self as a woman, and as an advocate for women, is at the forefront of my experience. As Kate processes her traumatic experiences, all or nothing thinking –– good versus bad, victim versus perpetrator –– seeps into our treatment; psychoanalytic theory provides a useful perspective, allowing me, and eventually Kate, to think in more complex and nuanced ways. In addition to directly addressing traumatic experiences, an experience-near listening perspective and close attention to implicit dimensions of communication is vital in co-constructing a secure therapeutic connection; within this space, Kate develops, and claims, a richer, more organized narrative of her life experiences.
