The Patient Who Didn't Say Anything
A case presentation of a dramatic resistance which developed almost immediately, continued for an inordinately long time, and refused to yield to a variety of modern psychoanalytic techniques. This somewhat unusual situation provides an opportunity to study in some depth the meaning and usefulness of character resistance in severe psychic states.
Friday, October 19, 2012 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm*
