The Antisocial Tendency and the Role of Deprivation: Facilitating the Maternal Environment

This paper explores Winnicott's conceptualization of the antisocial tendency and the role of deprivation. Speaking from his experiences of working with a child patient in foster care for nearly 12 years, the author discusses his provision of a maternal environment. The foster care system in St. Louis, MO, intersecting with race and class barriers are also explored.

After attending the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the role of deprivation in antisocial acts/behaviors.
  • Identify ways to facilitate maternal environments in treatment settings.

Becoming E, Becoming Me: Locating Ourselves and Each Other in a Clinical Experience of Fusion and the Uncanny

This case study explores the process of “becoming” for the client and for the analyst-in-training, within a clinical environment infused by the uncanny. Both grapple with internal and external psychic turmoil informed by the client's trauma history, and literally drawn into session through the client's art. The case challenges the listener, as it challenged the client and clinician, to identify and explore areas of fusion and the unknown through careful listening, presence, and acceptance.

After attending the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify areas of fusion in their work
  • Discuss their own disavowed clinical experiences, including unwanted feelings and self-perceptions.
