CRIME AND PUNISHMENT:
WHOSE CRIME? WHOSE PUNISHMENT?

Material from a weekly psychotherapy case of a young woman will illustrate how unconscious guilt for intolerable feelings of destructive aggression are expressed in an all-consuming fear of contracting a dangerous illness. The presentation will demonstrate how these dynamics contribute to the patient’s difficulties in separating from her parents as well as her struggles in peer and romantic relationships. How these dynamics come alive in the transference and countertransference with punishing feelings that threaten the treatment will be demonstrated as well as the crucial need to sit with and tolerate the patient's aggression. The challenges of containing this level of aggression within our patients and its impact upon therapists will be explored.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to recognize:
1. How problematic relationships with caregivers in childhood can lead to the development of aggression, guilt and the need for punishment.
2. How these problems manifest in adulthood and the challenges the patient has in maintaining healthy adult relationships.
3. The challenges of working with patients who have experienced this level of relational trauma.
