Analytic Love, Self-Compassion and the Growth of Internal Secure Attachment

Saturday, March 9TH, 2024 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM PST

Contemporary relational psychoanalytic theories have emphasized the therapeutic action of both empathy and mutuality. Trauma theories build on the establishment of relational safety and trust to focus on promoting the patient’s self-reflection and self-regulation skills, and the development of self-compassion in the service of healing self-alienation. The author discusses his integration of both approaches and resultant shifts in his clinical work.

Daniel Shaw, LCSW

Daniel Shaw, LCSW, is a psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City and in Nyack, New York. Originally trained as an actor at Northwestern University and with the renowned teacher Uta Hagen in New York City, Shaw later worked as a missionary for an Indian guru. His eventual recognition of cultic aspects of this organization led him to become an outspoken activist in support of individuals and families traumatically abused in cults. Simultaneous with leaving this group, Shaw began his training in the mental health profession, becoming a faculty member and supervisor at The National Institute for the Psychotherapies in New York. In addition to his numerous published journal articles and book chapters, Shaw’s book, Traumatic Narcissism: Relational Systems of Subjugation, was published in 2014 for the Relational Perspectives Series by Routledge. The book was a runner-up for the distinguished Gradiva Award. In 2018, the International Cultic Studies Association awarded him the Margaret Thaler Singer Award for advancing the understanding of coercive persuasion and undue influence.
