Thoughts on Infantile Trauma and Psychoanalytic Intervention

United States

In this talk, clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst Dr. Judy Eekhoff offers a talk addressing psychotherapeutic work with adults impacted by early infantile trauma. These patients have early experiences that have never been articulated and therefore affect the patient in ways that are difficult to know about or describe in words. The speaker addresses how these patients present in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and how they might recover from their experiences in the context of the therapeutic relationship. Dr. Eekhoff draws on the work of Sandor Ferenczi and other classic psychoanalytic theorists.
