Join us for our Round Table Discussion Series

Lost and Found

Facilitator: Jay Alan Davis, MD

These articles explore the dynamics of losing things, getting lost, being forgotten, and forgetting one’s self. According to a classic paper by Anna Freud, the child is more prone to get lost when the mother is unable to hold him/her in mind and engage in a process of mutual holding in memory. Sheldon Bach described how such issues may result in problems with self/object constancy, anxiety, memory, and learning. When these problems were revived in the transference and counter-transference in his treatment of a young adult patient, the therapist and patient struggled to keep each other alive in memory. In modern parlance, these are relational traumas and the therapeutic interventions must promote development of mentalization functions.

CFPS Alumni Group invites you to join us from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm to discuss a selected paper.
