About The Day

Morning Session

Theoretical and Clinical Perspectives on Analyst Boredom: Deadness, Aliveness, and the Spaces In Between

This presentation will focus on traditional as well as much more contemporary thinking about the meaning of clinician boredom.  I argue that boredom can of course indicate dissociated or otherwise inaccessible patient and/or therapist affect.  But there may be something about the normative clinical encounter that engenders these states more often than we care to admit. The deadened analyst’s resultant shame, guilt and other complex feelings will be explored via extensive theory and clinical material.

Afternoon Session

Say You, Say Me * – Confusing Our Objects, Naturally

Melanie had just landed and arrived for her session exhausted. Depleted and in distress; “I know I won’t get to see him or hear his voice again.  I could barely say goodbye, knowing that”.  Tears fill her eyes and I feel a similar press against my own lids as my mind begins to wander... This paper will explore work with a patient traumatized by toxic, fragile objects, in treatment with an analyst similarly impacted by parental fragility. One moment in particular will be considered, a period of existential crisis for both parties in which events overlapped, finality hovered, and confusion enveloped the dyad.   

(*Lionel Richie, 1986)

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the day’s presentation, participants will be able to:

1)    give one example from their own practice of how an aspect of their own subjectivity either impeded or facilitated the therapeutic action.

2)    Identify at least one example from their clinical practice of a situation in which patient and therapist boundaries weakened and subject and object became confused.

3)    Articulate at least one cause of analyst boredom.
