Working Intersubjectively with Developmental Trauma and Traumatic Attachments: 

A Case-Based Approach

Oct. 19, Nov. 16, Dec. 21, 2018, Jan. 18, Feb. 15, Mar. 15, April 19, May 17, 201912:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Intersubjectivity theory gives clinicians the tools to work effectively with developmental trauma and traumatic attachments while avoiding the impasses that often undermine treatment. While intersubjectivity theory is conceptually simple, it can be difficult to put into practice.

In this course, we’ll study the basic concepts of intersubjectivity theory with the goal of translating theory into practice. In each class meeting, we’ll discuss a foundational paper in intersubjectivity theory. Topics will include working with developmental trauma; understanding transference and countertransference; effectively practicing affect attunement; using the most emotionally salient forms of interpretation; and overcoming pathological accommodation. This will be followed by a discussion of a case in which participants will learn to effectively translate these ideas from theory to practice. Participants should develop greater confidence in helping patients suffering from developmental trauma and traumatic attachments while avoiding the most common obstacles to successful treatment.

Intersubjectivity theory and infant research have revolutionized our understanding of effective treatment for developmental trauma and traumatic attachments. This seminar is based upon the most influential works in these two fields. These works define developmental trauma and traumatic attachments and illustrate how therapists can work with them effectively.
