Renowned London child, adult and family psychoanalytic psychotherapist Jeanne Magagna will be visiting the SFCP in March to share her views on the treatment of children and adolescents. In this talk, she will show how infantile anxieties can influence hallucinations and psychotic states in patients suffering from eating disorders. Using clinical vignettes drawn from her experience on an in-patient unit, she will demonstrate how psychotic moments that initially compete with the work of the psychotherapist can be transformed over time.

 

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to
  • grasp Dr. Magagna’s view of the ways in which latent psychopathology can inform typical manifest symptoms of eating disorders.
  • grasp Dr. Magagna’s account of how this latent psychopathology can range from neurotic to psychotic forms of disorder, and how infantile anxieties can influence hallucinations and psychotic states in patients suffering from eating disorders.
  • grasp Dr. Magagna’s demonstrations of how psychotic moments that initially compete with the work of the psychotherapist in treatment can gradually be transformed, drawn from her work as a child psychotherapist on an in-patient unit.
