Event description

Description

This course will examine psychoanalytic conceptualization and treatment of eating disorders. We will explore these complex and confounding syndromes through multiple lenses: as failures of thought, with unthinkable thoughts becoming stuck in the body; as complex compromise formations tied to early relational experiences; as autistic defenses against intolerable anxieties; as dissociative disorders linked to early experiences of trauma and affect dysregulation; and as disorders of desire and clandestine love affairs marked by anticipation, excitement, secrecy, and disappointment, leaving emptiness in their wake. We will attend to the importance of gender, culture, and the role of the therapist’s body in the treatment situation throughout.
