TICP Presents

Malcolm Owen Slavin, Ph.D.

Grieving Existential Trauma in Development and Psychoanalysis

Saturday, May 14, 2022
10 a.m. – 3 p.m. EDT 

Event held online via Zoom videoconference.


About the Presentation

Morning Session:

We’ll start with a story about the troubling bedtime fears that emerged in the complicated relationship of a mother and her child. As they address those fears and navigate the developmental tensions in their relationship we see what Winnicott recognized as the larger, universally human, existential and relational issues that underlie the capacity for connection, aloneness and the use of the other in development and the therapeutic process.

Afternoon Session: 

We will go on to consider the way that many of our patients probe us in order to come to know our capacity to bear our own, as well as their anxieties around what is finite, mortal and rife with issues around otherness in human relating. We will consider how an open engagement in the reciprocity of that process may foster the creation of a complex form of empathy.
