2018-2019 ALUMNI ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION SERIES

Participants will discuss one or two journal articles per meeting. The readings include a few classic papers, but most are contemporary. While they include theoretical, developmental, and applied topics, most have a clinical emphasis. Each meeting will be facilitated by a CFPS faculty member who has an interest in the topic.

Meetings are scheduled on the 1st Friday of the month from 11:30 AM until 1:00 PM (except February, 11:00 AM-12:30 PM).

  • January 4, 2019 - 11:30 am to 1:00 pm CFPS Library - 900 Lovett, Houston, TX 77006 Jean Goodwin, MDSequelae of Massive TraumaBased on Kay Souter’s psychohistorical examinations, Bion’s theories were informed by his horrific experiences as a teenage tank commander during World War I.

The primary developmental task of young adulthood is separation from the parents, which involves a symbolic parricide. Bonovitz illustrated his ideas with a case of “failure to launch,” in which the patient’s development was stalled by a narcissistic vulnerable parent unable to allow the self to be “killed off.” While classical and contemporary psychoanalytic theories focus on the parent-child relationship with regard to personality development and psychopathogenesis, sibling relationships are relatively unexamined and undertheorized by comparison. Marilyn Charles’ evocative paper examines sibling relationships, providing ...
