Creativity & Transformation Committee of NYSSCSW


Date: March 1, 2015; Time: 12pm to 3pm (Including Q&A and Networking)

Place: 201 West 70th Street @ Amsterdam Ave #8J, NY 10023.

At this meeting/ seminar, we will enjoy the following two presentations:

Ona Lindquist: “Swimming In Space: A clinical presentation in verse – working with a schizophrenic patient.”

The chaos that is my patient, Jacinto’s world, was reflected in my experience of pulling this presentation together. Notes upon notes- undated, unnumbered; windows open, breezes blowing yellow pages everywhere. Session after session seemed to unravel more often than unfold. At risk of fragmenting myself, I began, unbidden, to organize this experience of chaos into verse, representing my early effort to survive as a therapist in the room with Jacinto. 

Antonio Alvim: "From earthquakes to good vibes: Transformations through a Resonance Process."

The vicissitudes of an analytic psychotherapy process with a 6 years old girl suffering from severe epileptic seizures since birth, with consequent general development impairment, are exposed and discussed. The therapist’s ability to learn his patient’s language behind words through his rêverie capability is proposed as a key aspect in the process of transforming the traumatic experience of uncontainable and unthinkable threatening emotions. More than words, the analytic process unfolds gradually through the analyst’s availability to engage in a deep internal working through of being with the patient, and from his capacity to learn from the patient’s experience – the import of this resonance process being proportional to the severity of trauma.
