    Scientific Meeting: Working with Dissociated Aggression in Traumatized Patients

    8:00 pmCommunity Unitarian Church - 468 Rosedale Ave., White Plains NY 10605

    Presented by: Daniel Shaw, LCSW

    Additional details: One of the most challenging aspects of working with patients who report childhood histories of abuse and/or neglect is bringing the patient's attention to the parts of them that treat others with some form of the same cruelty of which they were a victim. This paper describes some clinical encounters with an adult patient with a history of intensely disorganized attachment to highly narcissistic patients. The author grapples with aspects of the patient's suffering that evoke aversive, dysregulated feelings in him and describes the means he pursued to negotiate a more constructive and generative intersubjective experience with the patient.

    Scientific Meeting: "Nasty Women": Toward a New Narrative on Female Aggression

    8:00 pmCommunity Unitarian Church - 468 Rosedale Ave., White Plains NY 10605

    Presented by: Janet Zuckerman

    Additional details: This paper concerns the complex relationship between women and aggression, one that is troubled by numerous biases constraining women to be nice, never anger and avoid aggressive self-assertion. These social forces have silenced women throughout time, reflecting a powerful patriarchy that dates back for centuries. I begin with a personal vignette reflecting struggles with aggression, followed by two clinical examples demonstrating how an interpersonal/relational approach enabled my female patients to mobilize aggression for constructive use. Finally, I explore cultural as well as developmental factors that inhibit women's aggression; their adaptations to these strictures; and the ways therapy can help women transcend these obstacles to integrate a positive female aggression. I also include references to the 2016 presidential election as an example of sociocultural factors that infiltrate women's struggles with aggression. Inclusion of these elements tempers the tendency of psychoanalysis to separate the individual from the social, the intrapsychic from the political, and the private from the public.
