Finding Ground in an Ungrounded World:
Framing, Holding and Containing within the Clinical and Social Field

Social work depends on the continued cultivation of internal frames of practitioners to navigate psychoanalytic listening to the communications and experience of another.  In this course we will grapple with various ways of thinking about how we find ourselves orienting and disorienting in the service of holding and containing experience.  Through clinical material, this course will explore how we find ourselves framing, holding and containing when coming into contact with our minds and the mind of another in the clinical and social fields.

Lea Brown, LCSW
Wednesdays, January 11, 18, 25; February 8, 15, 22, 2017

Educational Objectives:
Participant will be able to

  1. develop a beginning understanding of the concept of “analytic listening”.
  2. develop a beginning understanding of the analytic notion of “holding”.
  3. develop a beginning understanding of the analytic notion of “containment.”
  4. develop a beginning understanding of the concept “internal frame” and how it is beneficial in their work with clients.
  5. demonstrate with clinical vignettes how these four concepts (above) may be applied to thinking through a spectrum of practice settings and cultural contexts.

 

Surviving and Thriving with Your Client

This seminar is about the importance of the client’s lived emotional life in the clinical relationship. Clients come to us feeling deadened, collapsed, enraged or destructively explosive. Aggression, imploded or exploded, is often at the heart of an individual’s suffering. Historical and social forces such as racism and poverty inform and compound our client’s distress. We will explore distinctions between developmentally healthy aggression, and aggression which is destructive towards self and others.  Throughout this seminar, we will discuss how the clinician’s survival, and capacity to think in the face of their client’s emotional turmoil, is central to the client’s healing and growth.

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to

  1. develop an understanding of Donald Winnicott’s perspective that aggression expressed and survived within a clinical relationship can be a critical aspect of the client’s growth and healing.
  2. develop an understanding of how mental suffering can be caused by aggression turned on the self.
  3. develop an understanding of imploded and exploded aggression as communications of the client’s adaptation to historical and social failures of the environment.
  4. develop the capacity to recognize and intervene with clients who are destructive towards self and others.
  5. develop an awareness of the clinician’s pull towards collapse or retaliation in the face of the client’s aggression.  Participants will develop an alternate stance that demonstrates the clinician’s survival, and facilitates the client’s emotional growth and development.
 

Managing the Internal Experience

This seminar will explore our conscious and unconscious responses to clients, supervisors, work settings and critical incidents.  The core psychoanalytic concepts of transference and counter-transference will provide a foundation for our thinking. Through reading and clinical presentations we will immerse ourselves in thinking about the multi-faceted nature of our relationship to clients and our personal and professional responses. The seminar will conclude with a discussion about how personal life circumstances impact our work; Life circumstances may generate strengths as well as vulnerability in the social work clinician at any given time.  Issues of race, gender, class and trauma will be woven throughout our discussions.
