“Psychic Retreat: Working with a Defensive Organization”
Saturday March 18th, 2017
10 AM – 12 PM
Pamela Van Dalfsen, Presenter
Terry Hanson, Discussant
Psychic retreats often stymie clinicians and result in an experience of being “stuck”, despite determined and thoughtful effort being invested. I will discuss a long term clinical case in which a defensive organization dominated and seemingly stalled the work for years. The discussion will also include the way the patient’s hatred of reality finally began to yield, opening to necessary character work.
