Event description
"Navigating Emotional Turbulence" Scientific Meeting

About this Event

This Scientific Meeting is designed to facilitate a discussion of our responses to the recent turbulent times which include dealing with the myriad stressors related to COVID as well as the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol, and indeed the Senate trial..

Maxine will explore the impact of these stressors on the mind which may be experienced as intrusions which generate splitting processes which may fracture our well-being and shut down our capacities for mental space and considered thought.

In exploring the impact on the mind Maxine will explore the questions:

• What is the impact of unpredictable and ongoing societal divisiveness on our psychic equilibrium?

• What response do we have when we experience the intrusions of political unrest and how do processes of splitting and projection operate in us in response?

• How do we recover our mental and emotional equilibrium in the midst of ongoing unrest following an assault the U.S. Capitol?

To unpack these questions and facilitate the conversation Maxine will discuss the concept of ‘liminal space’, similar to what Bion terms ‘caesura’ which is usefully thought of as that threshold between the space of the known and that of the yet to be known. As illustration she will share her personal experience of how the realization of this threshold facilitated her emergence from a warzone mentality toward mental and emotional reintegration.
