Boundary Violations: Traversing the Minefields of Sex and Love in the Consulting Room Presenter: Elizabeth R. Goren, PhD  Friday, April 26, 2019 12:00-2:00pm

How does that rare, but disturbing, case of psychoanalytic treatment fall down the slippery slope into a flagrant sexual boundary violation?  How can an analyst therapeutically manage treatments highly charged with erotic transference?  While the powerful affects of love and hate are core to in-depth therapy, their potential for abusive enactments make this territory challenging and anxiety provoking for even the most skilled therapist.

These questions and the therapeutic dilemmas surrounding issues of countertransference, self-disclosure, and distinguishing help from harm will be the focus of this program.  A brief review of the literature and case illustrations will be presented, and followed by discussion of Glen Gabbard’s paper, “Cyber-Passion: Erotic Transference on the Internet.”   Participants will be encouraged to share their own clinical experiences and perspectives.

Elizabeth R. Goren, PhD, is on the faculty of the NYU Postodoctoral Program and Pace University Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology.   She has published, taught, and presented on the clinical, ethical and theoretical aspects of sex, trauma, and technology in psychoanalysis.  Her most recent book is Psychoanalysis, Trauma and Community: History and Current Reappraisals by Routledge.    She is a practicing psychoanalyst, sex and couples therapist, in Manhattan and Brooklyn [here at 26 Court Street!].
