Language and Other Communications
The Child Psychoanalytic Program of SFCP welcomes you to a series of presentations demonstrating the scope of intensive work with children. These events offer an opportunity to hear a range of theoretical perspectives and clinical approaches. This year the series focuses on trauma recovery and the important role of the caregiver’s ability to attend to children's deep anxieties and their defenses. We hope you will attend several events and become part of the ongoing discussion, contributing to enriching clinical work and theoretical understanding.

This talk will explore clinical material from Dr. Tyminski’s new book, with attention to cultural factors and immigration history. Alienation often occurs when a gap between “new” and “old”, unfamiliar and familiar, seems unbridgeable. Boys and men with immigrant histories sometimes describe that they feel “broken” in an effort to repair such gaps in experience. This presentation will focus on a case example from Tyminski’s book in which cultural issues related to family, language, and social attitudes were unconsciously wrapped in loss, making it difficult for a patient’s sense of self to develop further.

Robert Tyminski, DMH is an adult and child analyst member of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and a past President; he teaches in the Institute’s analytic training program. He is a Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California at San Francisco. He is a 2016 winner of the Michael Fordham Prize from the Journal of Analytical Psychology. His new book is Male Alienation at the Crossroads of Identity, Culture and Cyberspace. His previous book The Psychology of Theft and Loss: Stolen and Fleeced was published in 2014 by Routledge.
