Does the Phoenix Rise from Eros? Psychodynamic Perspectives on Resiliency, Recovery, and Development of Self Against the Odds

with Kathryn Zerbe, MD

Course Dates:                       9/6, 9/13, 9/20, 9/27/2018

Course Time:                        7:00 – 8:30pm

Total CMEs Possible:          6.0

Course Description: What helps human beings thrive?  Psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are often maligned as treatments for the “worried well” but nothing can be further from the truth.  Clinicians have always been curious about those healing factors pertinent to our practice and humbled by narratives of individuals who overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to have a high quality of life.  Pairing a contemporary paper from different psychodynamic traditions with one of her own (2 on women artists; 2 on eating disorders), the instructor hopes to establish a dialogue about factors deemed essential for personal growth while considering how current interdisciplinary studies continually enrich, sustain, and challenge our clinical thinking.

Learning Objectives: At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Appreciate and critique the concept of essential other  (e.g., replacement object/’selfobject’/ good-bad object splits/muse) as one factor in promoting recovery and resiliency over the life cycle.

  2. Explore threads of interdisciplinary research that suggest and privilege the construction of autobiographical narrative development as paramount to psychotherapeutic transformation and/or personal growth and development.

  3. Incorporate 4 emerging “truths” from contemporary psychodynamic writings and quality of life research to enrich one’s clinical practice and to further one's own self-care, growth, and meaning.
