About this lecture
The body-mind relationship is receiving new attention in psychodynamic clinical work in the 21st century. In this presentation we will focus on the treatment of eating disorder patients as a key example of how the clinician addresses both the body and the mind in therapy. The countertransference impact on the therapist of treating a group of patients who keep secrets and the role this plays in the development of somatic (body) countertransference therapist will be demonstrated in clinical case examples. Emphasis will be placed on the therapist’s self-care and resilience when working with challenging and often refractory patients.
Goals and Objectives
- Describe 4 psychodynamic concepts frequently used in working with eating disorder patients.
- Recognize how secrets emerge spontaneously in these patients and their impact on the therapist and the treatment.
- Demonstrate and use somatic/embodied countertransference in the therapeutic process
- Expand interest in evolving area of body/mind in psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis
