Episode Description

Whether you are a seasoned psychoanalyst, group therapist or someone interested in how and why psychoanalysis works and how psychoanalytic thinking has expanded – You have to hear Dr. Robert Grossmark. Drawing upon his new book, The Unobtrusive Relational Analyst, he discusses his work with patients who formerly would be considered unsuitable for psychoanalytic treatment. These are patients whose behavior in the session or the group often enact the trauma they never had the words to share. Drawing upon case studies, Grossmark exemplifies what it means to companion with a person rather than interpret or invite mutual examination of the analytic process. He describes a process that teeters on the edge of chaos but ultimately makes relatedness and reflective thinking possible. In a powerful way, you will even see and better understand glimpses of yourself and your family on the journey we all take- which at times gets pretty close to chaos!!
