Jonathan H. Slavin, PhD, ABPP considers questions of therapists’ privacy and the circumstances for relinquishing it. Author Annee Ackerman, PhD explores the context of a graduate student’s first encounter with erotic desire in a treatment relationship, highlighting the stagnation and foreclosure that can occur as well as the potential benefits. Steven Kuchuck, DSW looks at the impact of analyst-patient shared erotic desire on the treatment and potential therapeutic action. In this discussion Sally Bjorklund, MA, LMHC considers the interaction of a one-person perspective with the intersubjective perspective. In this introduction Karen Perlman PhD, LP focuses on how thinking about skin contributes to relational theory and technique. Frank Summers, PhD, ABPP uses the metaphor of “skin in the game” to address the issue of touch in psychoanalysis. Three cases are presented by Leslie M. Lothstein, PhD, ABPP to demonstrate the relationship between the rendings of the skin-ego, disorders of the self and mind, and the need for long-term treatment of the paraphilias. Author Amira Simha-Alpern, PhD presents two patients whose skin-ego functions were compromised by early trauma to illustrate how they negotiate their coexisting needs to connect with others and to protect against potential impingements. Carrie Barron, MD explores the iatrogenic and intrapsychic underpinnings of contemptuous criticism and makes a plea for humility, awareness, and tact.

 

Book Review: A Timely Integration: Trauma, Dissociation, and Psychoanalysis by Robert M. Greenfield:

Authors Elizabeth F. Howell and Sheldon Itzkowitz expose the defensive disavowal of childhood abuse and the concept of dissociation within the history of psychoanalysis. By so doing, The Dissociative Mind aptly places trauma-generated dissociation and dissociation disorders firmly within the purview of contemporary psychoanalysis.

Global Perspectives: A Conversation with Elisabeth Roundinesco:

With the help of a wonderful interpreter, a wide range of topics were touched on in a conversation with historian Elisabeth Roundinesco about her most recent book, a biography of Freud.
