Description:  With the recent rise of families experiencing repeated trauma exposure, this psychodynamic case presentation explores a mother’s trauma and the impact on the emotional development of her twin sons placed in foster care. The mother’s internal conflicts and fantasies related to her early experiences as well as generational effects within the family of origin will be illustrated. The presenter will demonstrate ways in which a psychodynamic approach to parent work can provide a space to rework trauma and an opportunity for progressive development in the parent child relationship.

CME Objectives: 

  1. Demonstrate how psychodynamic approaches provide a safe environment for reworking trauma and supporting progressive developmental progress.
  2. Discuss practical therapeutic approaches for application regarding individual and family psychopathology associated with trauma.
  3. Explain how parent work creates a therapeutic alliance to provide support of the emotional development of the children in the case presentation.
