Shame is a powerfully disorganizing affect that can be difficult to manage in life and in the treatment relationship. As such psychoanalysts have increasingly been focusing on it from various perspectives. The NIP 2018 Annual Conference will feature a distinguished panel of speakers including, Sandra Buechler, Jody Davies, and Dan Hill who will explore their own unique theoretical and clinical views on shame. How does shame relate to early attachment and impact emotional regulation? How can the analyst work with shame in the transference/countertransference? How does shame play out in the interpersonal matrix of the analytic relationship? These are some of the questions we will reflect on as we discuss Contemporary Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Shame.
