What Adult Therapists Can Learn from Child Therapists

Learn from Child Therapists

Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program
is pleased to invite you to attend a meeting of our

Visiting Faculty Series

WHAT ADULT THERAPISTS CAN LEARN FROM CHILD THERAPISTS

PRESENTER: JUDITH A. YANOF, MD.

MONDAY, NOV. 16, 2015 at 8 PM

Reception and Open House at 7:30 pm
Program to follow

Karen Horney Auditorium           329 E. 62nd St, (betw. 1st and 2nd Ave)

Through the presentation of a fascinating child analytic case, Dr. Judith Yanof will take you through her thinking about how child psychotherapists and child analysts use developmental theory in the course of their work. This consideration of development influences their decisions about technique, therapeutic action and the therapist’s role. Dr. Yanof contends that understanding how child therapists and analysts work with children, particularly how they think about therapeutic action and play, can be very useful in working with adult patients.

Judith A. Yanof, M.D. is a Training and Supervising Analyst and Child Supervisor at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (BPSI).  She has written many articles on different aspects of child treatment, including gender, development, transference, termination, and play. In 1996, she received the Journal Essay Award of the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. She was chosen by the American Psychoanalytic Association to be the 2010-2011 Helen Meyers Traveling Scholar. She currently serves on the Editorial Board of JAPA, The Psychoanalytic Quarterly, and The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child.

For over 25 years she has worked pro bono in community programs for children in the Boston area, including Boston University’s Witness to Violence Program, Bright Horizons Child Care Center for the Homeless, and the Jewish Family and Children’s Early Connection Program. In 2012, BPSI awarded her the Arthur Kravis Award for Community Action and Humanitarian Contributions.

Learning Objectives:

(1) The participant should be able to name two differences between working with a child or adolescent in psychotherapeutic treatment and working with an adult.
(2) The participant should be able to name two similarities in working with child, adolescent, and adult patients.
(3) The participant should be able to give an example of how the child therapist’s understanding of play technique with children can be translated to adult work, either as a way to hear material or make choices about interventions.

Teaching Method: Lecture and clinical presentation followed by discussion with the audience.
