To Have and to Hold: the World of the Compulsive Hoarder
the World of the Compulsive hoarder
Compulsive hoarders have attracted increasing attention. What can we understand about this disorder and how can we frame a clinical perspective? Join us to view My Mother’s Garden, a look into the psychic world of a compulsive hoarder, and to discuss the hoarder as he or she may appear in our practice.

The arousals that occur when we work with narcissism are particularly intense and require us to confront and work through the narcissism in our own personalities. Spotnitz was a pioneer in reconsidering the value of countertransference. We will discuss case material that focuses on the difficulty in distin- guishing between subjective and objective countertransference and how that process informs our technique. Recommended readings provided beforehand.

Hyman Spotnitz and the founders of the modern school expanded and modified the Freudian canon so that it evolved into a unique and highly successful approach to both treatment and training but isolated it from the mainstream. The reasons behind this isolation are examined in the larger context of historical and political developments in psychoanalysis.
