The Ambulant Cemetery: Secret Projects of Repair

with Adrienne Harris, PhD

Saturday, January 27, 2018

This lecture will address the presence and function of damaged internal objects, ghosts of various forms and kinds, that find their way into analytic work. Drawing from the work of Henri Rey and the work on intergenerational transmission of trauma (Faimberg, Apprey, Grand and Salberg and others) I will discuss the often secret and also often unconscious project in analysis where the patient arrives not to change themselves but to repair someone else. Extended clinical examples are also presented.

Educational Objectives:  At the conclusion of this program participants will be able to:

  1. To understand the theoretical concept of intergenerational transmission of trauma as it appears in clinical. 
  2. To understand the forms of transmission of traumatic experiences interpersonally and intergenerationally particularly through the mechanisms of attachment  and early interpersonal engagement.
  3. To gain a clinical and hands-on understanding of the appearance of trauma in clinical situations and the resistance to change that often accompanies these kids of patient/analyst dyads.
