SADOMASOCHISM, SEPARATION AND LOSS IN THE ERA OF TRUMP

The twice-weekly treatment of a Yemeni woman who emigrated alone as a young adult to the United States will be discussed. The presentation will explore the impact of sadomasochistic dynamics in the patient’s family of origin on her adult relationships as well as the treatment. The patient’s disavowed rage is acted out through masochistic tendencies such as social media “stalking” and by placing herself in dangerous circumstances, particularly with men. She also has a tendency to act sadistically in a desire to exact revenge in an effort to avoid the experience of vulnerability. The challenge of maintaining a neutral stance, managing worry and helping to reduce defenses against vulnerability for patients presenting with these types of dynamics will be explored.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to:
1) Recognize how sadomasochistic dynamics with caregivers can impact adult relationships.
2) Increase their understanding of how to support patients through sadomasochistic conflicts.
3) Become more aware of the impact of culture, immigration status and the current political climate on our patients and treatment.
