It’s Getting Crowded in Here: Reflections on the Control Case Requirement and the Analytic Third

Register Here

Through open examination of her work with a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, Handler explicates some of the dynamics that can arise for candidates at relational psychoanalytic institutes in the context of the control case training requirement. From inside an already fraught clinical situation, the author explores how the control case requirement may act as an analytic Third in the treatment room, and the ways in which enactments in control cases are managed—internally by candidates; between analytic couples; and broadly among the educational, supervisory, and institutional support systems in place for candidates at relational institutes.

Learning Objectives

As a result of having attended this presentation, the learner will:

  1. Identify potential enactment dynamics arising from the treatment of survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

  2. List the potential effects that therapist anxiety and subjective needs can have upon treatment and transference-countertransference.

  3. Identify the emergence of dissociated states in the dynamics of the transference/countertransference engagement and learn how to engage these within the deepening treatment.
