OPEN HOUSE LUNCHEON & CLINICAL PRESENTATION FOR THOSE CONSIDERING POSTGRADUATE TRAINING
AN ADOLESCENT “STUCK” IN HER FANTASY WORLD: FROM AGES 16 – 21
Wednesday, March 6, 2013, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
PRESENTER: Stacy King, LMSW. Graduate: Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Child and Adolescent Program. Staff Therapist: The Metropolitan Center for Mental Health. Founder: Wiggles & Giggles Playhouse, Children’s Center.
The treatment of a young woman with limited social contacts and peer relationships, who is stuck in a rich fantasy world, will be explored. When treatment started five years ago, the patient was 16 years old. Now, at 21, in many ways she continues to behave as if she is a young adolescent lacking the experiences that a typical teenager would have. Spending most of her time indoors watching television or going online, this patient misses out on a multifaceted life. Instead, she lives vicariously through her favorite characters on TV. The therapist has taken a journey into the patient’s fantasy life as a means of trying to help the patient contend with reality.
LOCATION: 160 West 86th Street (outside entrance, between Amsterdam & Columbus Avenues)
RSVP: Space is limited. There is no fee but you must reserve in advance. For reservations: please contact Ivy Vale, Registrar, at (212) 496-2858 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Refreshments will be served.
