The work of IPTAR Candidates in the On-Site School Program, both in individual therapy and in groups, has been an invaluable component of psychoanalytic
training at IPTAR for 17 years. This panel discussion will focus on work at a middleschool for economically disadvantaged, intellectually gifted students in midtown Manhattan. Dr. Carla Rentrop, along with three candidates, will discuss their support groups at the school, focusing on the topic of aggression and its derivatives in group process. At this pivotal time of early adolescence, as students transition from middle school to high school, participation in the IPTAR support groups provide an opportunity to open up psychoanalytic spaces to verbalize, understand, reflect on and experiment with intense and often confusing emotions.
Clinical vignettes and theory informed by the works of Freud, Klein, Winnicott, and Bion will illustrate how the therapists integrate their psychoanalytic training with group dynamics to think about the challenges for these adolescents, in their struggle to make sense of aggression as a means to separate and individuate and as a definition of the self will be explored in light of the cultural and diverse context that the work in the school uniquely offers to individual group members and their therapists.
