Panel Presentation: Treating Developmental Crises in Young Adults

Presenter:

NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

How can that be Me?: Developmental Disruption in a Young Adult.

A college student cannot sleep for days on end. What soon emerges is that he is in the throes of a manic psychotic break; and a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. How does this formerly steady, successful young man integrate this experience into his sense of himself? This presentation addresses this from developmental and clinical standpoints.

Presenter:

Christopher Bonovitz, Psy.D.
NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

All But Dissertation (ABD)/All But Parricide (ADP): The Renegotiation of
the Parent-Child Relationship in Young Adulthood and the Role of the Analyst’s Narcissism. This paper addresses recurring developmental crises during young adulthood, detailing a young adult patient’s struggle to rework attachment in light of parental narcissistic vulnerabilities and dependencies. Using Loewald’s work, the project of symbolically “killing off the parent” and the process of mourning in the service of psychic reorganization will be discussed. The analyst’s emerging subjectivity and
narcissistic vulnerability will be considered in relation to the case material.
