Description: November 15, 2019 - 6pm-8pm
Shelley Doctors
George Hagman, Discussant

Kohut's creation of the selfobject concept marks a point of departure for psychoanalysis-the moment when analysts began to shift their attention away from intrapsychic relationships and toward relational experiences, conscious and unconscious, that are key to understanding psychological development, psychopathology, and psychological treatment. This concept underscores our inescapable relational embeddedness and is essential to clinical work because it brings into view the functional capacity one person may have to bring dimensions (or potential dimensions) of another person into being. Clinical examples will illustrate selfobject experiences and varieties of selfobject transferences.
