Online Seminar series – Part 2

15/01/2022 Seminar 1 Coming into being

Working with the fundamental trauma related to acceptance and rejection by the primary caregivers – the primary narcissistic wound.

In this seminar, Marcus explores what is the primary trauma – whether or not our earliest expressions of self (Michael Fordham would call them deintegrates), are met, engaged with and responded to with either welcome, indifference or hostility. Those parts of the self that were not met and were dissociated (the defining characteristic of trauma), play a foundational role in the personality. When those parts were met with hostility, psychotic defences arise, which lie in plain sight in most analyses; these are the parts that it is unthinkable for us to approach. Marcus describes the enormous importance of the dynamics that follow from this in the consulting room and the process of analysis, with a particular focus on the critical superego and suicide.

05/02/2022 Seminar 2 The analyst’s journey

Understanding and working with reconstructed / co-constructed early trauma in the consulting room.

In this seminar, Marcus explores the way that the analyst necessarily becomes deeply involved in the process of analysis, particularly where trauma and thus dissociation play a part, with dissociated parts of the self remaining in primitive form that require/demand our engagement. The analyst’s own personality, development and experience of these parts of themselves are crucial to the process. The analyst’s ‘personal’ development within any particular (unique) analysis may very well be the key to further progress in the analysis. The process of analysis is essentially about the development of the relationship between analyst and patient. He will look at the particular challenges that can arise when working with such primitive states of mind.
