The presentation will provide a real case example to learn about primitive psychopathology, how to think about such patients, and how to manage them practically. It is geared toward clinicians who work with challenging cases from a psychodynamic or psychoanalytic perspective. Emphases in the presentation with be on psychoanalytic techniques, such as the importance of a secure treatment frame; holding and containment of the patient’s marked anxieties; the uses of countertransference to understand the patient; analysis of transference; careful listening to the subtleties of language to enhance understanding of unconscious processes; and the gentle art of interpretation in a way the patient could hear and then understand himself. Understanding and linking infantile and early childhood experiences informed the conceptualization of how the patient’s conflicts and dynamic structure developed. Examples of these psychoanalytic techniques are embedded in the case history and process notes from several sessions. They will be further elaborated during intermittent breaks for discussion during the presentation.
