Coherence, Competence & Confusion, in Fictional Narratives of Latency: A Look at How the Real is Remembered
Lissa Weinstein, Ph.D.Examination of the thematic and structural elements of stories written by adults about middle childhood opens a window into how the cognitive and affective shifts of latency are internalized and memorialized. These stories are works of mourning for the relationship with the parents and the childhood self, but more importantly, attempts to transform the inchoate experience of latency through the retrospective creation of a coherence that was initially absent.

Dr. Weinstein is a clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in City College’s Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology.

Students, academics and clinical professionals in the analytic community are encouraged to attend.
