Program Description:  Psychoanalysis’s treatment of trans children and trans adolescents ranges from moral panic that masquerades as psychoanalysis to facile, conceptually lazy “acceptance”. This presentation starts from the premise that both are problematic and insufficient, and proposes that the difficulty our field is experiencing around trans youth has to do with the challenges trans experience and embodiments pose to our metapsychology. Clinical material that spans a ten-year treatment of a trans child, will help flesh out the particular pressures transness places on psychoanalytic theorizing -around the sexual, embodiment, ethics, and psychic time- and offer enlarged pathways to clinical engagement with such children. The level of programming is intermediate, so it will build on a foundational knowledge of gender and introduce contemporary applications of theory and interventions in working with transgender children.

Who should attend:

The program is extended to members of the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis. We welcome psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, licensed counselors, mental health students, and other mental health providers interested in psychoanalytic theory, practice and perspectives on LGBTQ+.
