    Struggling in dissociative quicksand: Relational quandaries in the treatment of dissociative identity disorder

    Stacey M. Boyer, PsyD

    Sunday, February 28, 2016


    Dissociation is a mental phenomenon experienced by all to varying degrees along a continuum.  At the far end of this continuum are individuals who experience themselves as occupying rigidly distinct self-states.  Such is the case in the chronic trauma disorder of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).  For those living with DID, dissociation serves as both life preserver and cinderblock in the watery abyss of trauma.  Dissociation promotes survival by shielding them from knowing the unknowable, but often at the expense of long-term stability and connection to self and others.  

    In the consulting room, therapists are charged with the task of working hand-in-hand to know the unknowable, bear witness to the terror that first led to fragmentation, and hold both our own and our patient’s many self-states.  As our dissociative processes are pulled to the fore, we may experience ourselves sinking in the co-created quicksand of various enactments.  An extended case example illustrates these challenging, but transformative experiences for both patient and therapist in the treatment of DID from initial diagnosis through safety and stabilization.    


    Learning Objectives:

    1.  Describe the adaptive and maladaptive nature of dissociation.


    2.  Explain two techniques to promote internal communication and collaboration among dissociated self-states.


    3.  Identify two common enactments that may emerge in the treatment of DID.


    Stacey M. Boyer, PsyD is a licensed psychologist who specializes in the assessment and treatment of trauma and dissociation.  After completing the Sheppard Pratt Trauma Disorders Program Fellowship, Dr. Boyer joined Survivors of Abuse in Recovery, Inc. to provide trauma-focused psychotherapy in the tri-state area.  She also conducts evaluations for the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency, serves as adjunct faculty at the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology at Widener University, and is President-Elect of PSPP.  Dr. Boyer has previously presented and published on Relational psychoanalytic conceptualizations and treatments of trauma and dissociation, therapeutic assessment of dissociation, gender, and sexuality.

    PSPP 2016 Annual Spring Program

    Breaking the Cycles that Trap Us: Affect, Attachment, Integration, Intervention

    Paul Wachtel, Ph.D.

    Saturday, March 5th 2016 

    9:30am - 2:30pm


    Location:

    Arch Street Meeting House 

    320 Arch Street (corner of 4th and Arch)

    Philadelphia, PA 19106 

    Monthly Meeting Room

    http://www.archstreetfriends.org



    In this workshop Dr. Wachtel will highlight the ways in which the problems we work with as clinicians are organized as self-perpetuating vicious circles, making it crucial to take into account how other people in the patient’s life are drawn in as “accomplices” in the problematic life pattern. Breaking the vicious circles in which our patients are trapped requires an approach that is at once deep and active, probing and humane, promoting of insight but not getting stuck in the head. Through using a format that encourages active exchange with and participation by the attendees as well as including extensive clinical examples and an illustrative video of a session, this workshop will highlight how a comprehensive relational perspective opens pathways for integrating the strengths of the psychoanalytic point of view with those of other orientations that have become influential across the spectrum of therapeutic practice in recent decades.

    Paul L. Wachtel, Ph.D. is Distinguished Professor of psychology in the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership at City College and in the doctoral program in clinical psychology at the CUNY Graduate Center. He was a cofounder of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI) and is a past president of that organization. Among his most recent books are Relational Theory and the Practice of Psychotherapy (2008), Inside the Session: What Really Happens in Psychotherapy (2011) the second edition of Therapeutic Communication: Knowing What to Say When (2011), and Cyclical Psychodynamics and the Contextual Self: The Inner World, the Intimate World, and the World of Culture and Society (2014). He is a Fellow of Divisions 12, 29, and 39 of the American Psychological Association.

    2016 PSPP Brunch Series

    Psychoanalytic Practice in the Real World
    Sunday, March 20, 2016


    Kelly Bassett, M.Ed., Dan Livney, Psy.D., and Courtney L. Slater, Ph.D 


    This panel seeks to explore some of the challenges of practicing psychodynamic/psychoanalytic work in a society and time when deep and nuanced talk therapy is viewed as not evidenced-based or as an outmoded or ineffective style of psychotherapy. The panelists will address both strengths of psychodynamic work as well as real-life challenges encountered by practitioners. Additionally, the panel will describe how these clinicians speak to and explain to patients and to referring providers what it is that we do, why we do it, and how it is reparative and curative.  

    Sometimes patients come to us expecting a quick fix, a focus on behavior at the expense of emotions, a privileging of symptoms over root cause, and a way to quickly and easily quantify change—expectations perhaps set up by their referring providers, the health insurance companies, and our larger fast-paced and instant gratification culture. The reality that psychodynamic work is evidence-based, and effective, is often lost in the mix. Whether one works in private practice or is responsible for notes that strike a non-psychodynamic tone in a clinic or agency setting, we have to be aware of both societal expectations as well as the strengths and evidence-based rationalizations for our style of work; including the ways in which it differs—and doesn't—from other kinds of psychotherapies. 


    Learning Objectives:

    1. Name two advantages and two challenges of working psychodynamically in a societal and medical context.
       
    2. Describe how to explain to patients and to referring medical providers the strengths of a psychodynamic way of working.

     

    Kelly Bassett, M.Ed. is a psychoanalyst in private practice in Voorhees, NJ. She did her psychoanalytic training at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies in New York City and sits on the board of PSPP and the Therapy Center of Philadelphia.

     

    Dr. Dan Livney is in private practice in Conshohocken, as well as on staff at the University of Pennsylvania Section of Geriatric Psychiatry, and consults to the Psychiatry and Bariatric Departments of Chestnut Hill Hospital. He currently serves as President of PSPP.

     

    Dr. Courtney Slater is a licensed clinical psychologist who recently opened a private practice in Philadelphia, PA.  She is also an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology at the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology at Widener University, where she specializes in working psychodynamically with issues related to religion/spirituality.

    2016 PSPP Brunch Series

    How Can Pragmatism Effect Contemporary Analytic Thinking and Practice?

       

    Sunday, May 15, 2016


    Philip J. Rosenbaum, Ph.D. 

     

    The goal of this presentation is to (re)introduce American pragmatism into the landscape of contemporary psychoanalytic thinking and practice. Since psychoanalysis has undergone the “relational turn”, embracing postmodern thinking and distancing itself from classical ego psychology, ideas of how the self is understood, the role of the analyst’s authority and influence, and the nature of transference and counter transference, to name a few, have all gone through significant change. We are now very much in the middle of redefining and thinking about these ideas. This presentation will argue that including pragmatism into contemporary thinking is not only timely, but also potentially crucial, as it provides a significant body of writing and thinking about these ideas that many contemporary theorists and practitioners would feel familiar with. 

     

    This presentation will introduce the reader to a few of these ideas, including the pragmatic maxim and the importance of interpretation (and semiotics or signs) for active meaning making. Links to current thinking and thinkers and contemporary practice will be made. This presentation will argue that pragmatism is well suited for thinking and living in today’s highly uncertain and complex world as it is particularly well suited to exploring and understanding how meaning is made, subjectivity experienced, and how relationships work. 

     

    Learning Objectives

    1. Describe the pragmatic maxim as described by Charles Peirce and William James.
    2. Identify at least two ways that pragmatic philosophy has impacted current popular ideas in psychoanalysis and how “thinking pragmatically” is beneficial to clinical practice. 

     

    Philip J. Rosenbaum, PhD is a clinical psychologist, psychoanalyst, and the Director of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Haverford College. He also has a private practice in Center City Philadelphia. He received his psychoanalytic training at the William Alanson White Institute. He is the editor of the recently published book Making Our Ideas Clear: Pragmatism and Psychoanalysis.

    2016 PSPP Brunch Series:


    Do I have to tell my patients I’m blind?


    Sunday, June 12, 2016


    Ari Pizer, MA, MMT

     


    Self-disclosure has been discussed from many different perspectives.  This brunch will explore yet another dimension of this expanding area of our literature: the disclosure of a therapist’s disability.  It will describe our presenter’s own conflicts regarding how to talk about his visual impairment with patients — the result of a degenerative eye disease — in a way that respects the patient’s right not to know something about the therapist.  Using a clinical vignette, we will look at how our presenter’s ambivalence over this disclosure became enacted in his work with a college student, and how the eventual disclosure of his vision issue lead to a greater establishment of intimacy in the analysis, and a generative experience that continues to ripple through the therapist’s current work.

     

    We will hear excerpts from the therapist’s article for Psychoanalytic Perspectives (in press), and expand on some of the themes as they have continued to evolve in his clinical work.  As a group, we will discuss the influence of dimension of the therapist’s subjectivity, such as race, gender, sexuality, as well as the less investigated aspects of the therapist’s physical characteristics, and subjectivity, such as disability, age, chronic pain, illness, etc.  We will also discuss how these dimensions of subjectivity are used in ways that either hinder or further the clinical process. 

     


    Learning Objectives:

     

    1. Describe what is meant by ‘self-disclosure.’

    2. Recite at least one clinical example of how elements of their subjectivity negatively, positively, or inconclusively impacted a patient or moment in the treatment. 

     

    Ari Pizer, MA, MMT is a doctoral candidate at Widener University’s Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology, and is a 2015 Division 39 Graduate Student Scholar.  An earlier version of this paper was presented at the 2015 annual IARPP conference in Toronto.
