    New Haven Mini-Meeting

    Sunday, November 11, 2018   

    Time: 2 - 4 PM

     

    Place: The Home of Allison Brownlow, Ph.D.**


    Please Join Ellen Nasper, Ph.D. in a discussion of:


    “Integrating DBT methods and psychodynamic theory with individual patients in private practice”

     

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for Analysts

    DBT was developed in the 1990s by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. specifically for the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).   Since then it has proved a useful intervention for many people who struggle with various behavioral and emotional dysregulations, dysregulations which are usually the developmental  consequences of severe neglect or overt trauma in childhood.  It is an “evidence based” practice.  Thus, there is evidence that DBT helps people manage specific forms of dysregulation:  it has been shown to reduce suicidal and self-injurious behavior.  Of course this also means that there are many aspects of BPD and Complex PTSD (especially painful affects and aspects of interpersonal problems and problems in relationship to the self) for which there is no evidence that DBT is the best treatment.  

    In this presentation, Dr. Nasper will talk as a clinician who embraced DBT as a humane and useful way to treat extremely emotionally and behaviorally dysregulated people receiving mental health services in a community clinic.  She will explore what about DBT’s philosophy seemed extremely constructive and useful (for staff as well as clients).  And finally, she will talk about how she conceptualizes using the skills taught in DBT as an adjunct to treatment that is primarily conceptualized from a psychoanalytic frame.


    (CEU's might be available, for a fee of $3.00)

    Presents a Clinical Conference




    Mary Jo Gerson, PhD


    The “Present” in Couples Therapy: 

    Moments of Transformation

    The New Haven Lawn Club

    Summary

    This presentation offers a view of couples therapy focused on crucial “moments” of engagement and transformation. From an integrated psychoanalytic, systemic and attachment theory perspective, and drawing on the work of the Boston Change Process Group, specific “moments” in couples therapy will be highlighted. Issues of therapeutic participation, transference and countertransference will be addressed from this triadic theoretical perspective.
