The Metropolitan Center for Mental Health and The Metropolitan Society of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists Invite you to a Scientific Meeting Friday, March 27, 2019 – 7:30 PM THE MEANING OF DIFFERENCE FOR THE LGBTQ CHILD/ PRESENTER: KIMBERLY KLEINMAN, LCSW
In 1986, Richard Isay described three broad stages in homosexual identity formation: a childhood acquisition stage, the consolidation stage of adolescence and early adulthood, and the integration stage of adulthood. Ms. Kleinman will focus on the early phase of childhood recognition of sexual identity and the meaning this recognition has for the child. She will also describe her work with adolescent patients of transgender experience and their work around the integration of sexual and gender identity. The universal difficulty with feelings of difference will be discussed. This has specific consequences for transference. Work with parents will also be discussed.
Participants will: 1) Identify stages of sexual object choice and gender identity. 2) Understand the developmental meaning of feelings of difference in the latency and adolescent phases. 3) Transferential issues will be identified.
