Monday

W610. Children of the Self-Absorbed

If you grew up with a narcissistic parent—either your mother or your father—you did not have a parent who was consistently there for you, available to meet your needs. As a result, you have likely had a difficult time in your adult intimate relationships, feeling comfortable with being close, with trusting, feeling safe, knowing how you feel, having confidence in yourself, difficulty in setting boundaries and feeling loved, in addition to being a “people pleaser”. You were taught that focusing on your needs and desires is selfish. This workshop will explore the impact that narcissistic parents have on their children and we will be discussing ways to resolve some of the old patterns from childhood, which get repeated in adult life. This workshop is open to anyone who has experienced these issues and to clinicians who are working with patients who grew up with narcissistic parents.
Please include your email address on the registration form to receive an article prior to the first class.

Wednesday

W613. “Fight” “Flight” “Freeze”: Neural Responses to Trauma/Dissociation

We process information using a complex behavioral process in order to develop ‘survival behavior’. Brain pathways are common to all animals-from reptiles to primates. Exposure to trauma/overstimulation builds specific reactions such as fight or flight to protect ourselves. When the responses of fight or flight are no longer available, there is a third choice, the ‘freeze response’. The freeze response is both adaptive and maladaptive-it has no discharge and adverse behavior and health issues follow leading to inappropriate and ineffective survival behavior—also known as trauma and/or dissociation.

Friday

W615. Psychoanalysis and Hypnosis

Psychoanalysis grew out of hypnosis. In fact, Freud who had been trained in hypnosis in France before developing psychoanalysis, began his psychotherapy practice in Vienna as a therapeutic hypnotist. In those days therapeutic hypnosis was done with the subject lying on a couch. When Freud gave up hypnosis, he repurposed the couch. Let me be presumptuous enough to assert that Freud misunderstood hypnosis. Had he a modern understanding of hypnosis, he would not have abandoned the practice and psychoanalysis today would be very different. In this workshop I want to introduce the participants to the uses of hypnosis in a psychotherapy practice with a particular emphasis on its usefulness for psychoanalysis. No on will quack like a chicken, but participants might discover some of the benefits (and fun) of going into a trance.
Limited to four participants. If there are more that four, another workshop will be held on June 23.
