Relational Perspectives on Trauma

Saturday, June 25 at 2 PM PST

This paper describes analytic work with Valerie, a traumatized patient whose D category attachment disorder and dissociative states emerged slowly over the course of our very long and extensive treatment. I use the brain studies of the neurobiologist Gerald Edelman; the attachment studies of Elizabeth Howell, and the studies of traumatic memories of Arnold Modell in my attempt to understand and work with patients like Valerie, patients who dissociate into a past experience that for them cannot be separated from the present moment.
