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.

Three clinicians from A Home Within will present their long term psychotherapy cases, including two children and one young adult, demonstrating the power of the healing relationship. Continuity, predictability, reliability and a calm, containing therapist activate and structure a secure attachment, resulting in psychic growth, despite on-going traumatic circumstances and the anti-attachment defensive structures that are inevitable in those who have suffered repeated losses and fractured trust.

Dr. Keller will introduce the presenters and follow their presentations with a brief discussion focusing on the agents of psychological growth. There will be ample time for audience discussion.

A Home Within (https://www.ahomewithin.org/) provides psychotherapy for foster kids: One child, one therapist, as long as it takes.

Moderator:
German Cheung, PsyD

 

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to
  • describe these factors in long-term therapeutic relationships with severely traumatized individuals that contribute to psychic growth: continuity, predictability and containment.
  • explain the effect of two key variables in promoting healing of individuals with histories in the foster care system via the model supported by A Home Within: the pro bono framework and the role of the consultation group.
  • formulate the specific impact of curative factors on anti-attachment defensive structures in the context of continuing traumatic circumstances.
