Dr. Lynne Harkless of the Florida Psychoanalytic Center will be presenting her paper, forthcoming publication in JAPA, which questions and retheorizes the connection between embodiment of erotic desire and embodiment of gender. She proposes that children identify with caregivers’ modes of embodying erotic desire and that these identifications can be thought of as separable from gender identifications.
An extended clinical case will be presented to demonstrate how unconscious identifications with caregivers’ modes of embodying desire might become activated in both members of the analyst-patient dyad – relationally, bodily, and erotically – in the transference–countertransference.
Dr. Harkless will lecture and present a case in the morning. The afternoon will consist of case presentation to panel of three analysts.
Attendees earn 4.5 CEU’s and Lunch will be provided.
