Event description

Description

The hallmark of psychodynamic treatment is a focus on psychological patterns and processes that underlie overt symptoms — in other words, personality dynamics. In his lecture, “Personality Pathways to Depression,” Dr. Shedler will discuss the personality styles and syndromes most often seen in clinical practice (narcissistic, borderline, obsessive-compulsive, etc.), describe how each personality style represents a unique pathway to “depression” that requires a distinct treatment focus, and offer clinical strategies for deepening treatment. Building on concepts from the lecture, the clinical workshop will have a practical, hands-on clinical focus. Participants will develop a deeper appreciation of contemporary psychoanalytic/psychodynamic therapy through a clinical case presentation by a workshop participant, with case discussion, “live” clinical supervision, and role-playing to demonstrate effective intervention. Dr. Shedler will emphasize personality dynamics and the constructive use of transference and countertransference.
