Teens may never be the same after the pandemic . . .
CONSIDERATIONS FOR OUR WORK WITH THE ADOLESCENT COHORT FRIDAY, MAY 29, and FRIDAY, JUNE 5, 2020 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM PRESENTER: STACEY BRAFFETT, LCSW-R
The COVID-19 pandemic will have an extraordinary impact on teens in ways we are only beginning to fathom. As a group we will honor and contemplate their shared experiences, which include: arrested emotional development, a fracturing sense of self, and profound grief and loss through several psychoanalytic lenses.
A brief presentation summarizing the unique challenges adolescents must navigate in these frightening and uncertain times will be followed by a lively group discussion informed by our own clinical and personal experiences. Video interviews/vignettes with teens about their current fears and anxieties (viewed in advance of our meetings) will inform and amplify these conversations.
1. Consider modifications in the frame to best address the simultaneous trauma we as clinicians and patients must endure together.
2. Help our adolescent patients develop a language to express their affective states and legitimize their collective and idiosyncratic experiences in these unprecedented times.
3. Explore the influence of anxiety producing isolation and uncertainty on both the transference, and how the adolescent may need to lean on us as an alternative object in reality.
