he New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute presents the ROBERT J. KABCENELL MEMORIAL LECTURE IN CHILD ANALYSIS
Developmental Psychoanalysis and the Promotion of Progressive Development: A Retrospective Discussion with Jill M. Miller, PhD
Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 8:00 PM, The Marianne & Nicholas Young Auditorium, 247 East 82nd Street, NYC
Most children who enter analysis suffer from what Anna Freud called the mixed psychopathology of childhood– the interweaving of both conflict and developmental disturbances. The technical approach with these children is also mixed as the focus is not only on conflicts, but also on developmental imbalances and internal structural deficits. In this presentation detailed clinical material from the analysis of a 4 and one half-year old girl will be outlined to elucidate this approach. In addition, when looking back at an analysis one always wonders if there were alternative ways of understanding the patient and what could have been done differently, issues which will be open for discussion.
