In this presentation, Jack and Kerry Novick will share some ideas about broadening and enriching our analytic repertoire. How many channels do we have open when we are listening to adult patients? What can we bring to bear to encompass the complexity of adult personality, character, history and functioning? They suggest that there are aspects of developmental knowledge, experience, and child/adolescent technique that bring depth to work with adults and may at times illuminate obscure aspects of functioning or offer ways out of impasses. They describe these in the context of the therapeutic relationship in its many dimensions and in terms of the various ways that adults internalize and use parenting functions.


After this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Integrate early relationships into current treatment goals;

2. Identify current derivatives of childhood relationships in adult treatments;

3. Select techniques to address dimensions of internalized parenting functions.
