When Losing is Winning: Sources of Passivity & Masochism
in an Adolescent & the Challenges of Treatment

Moderator: Ed Kohn, MD

This presentation illustrates developmental challenges of late adolescence complicated by inhibition and passivity can be understood, not only from the external story line, but more powerfully, from how these dynamics come alive in the transference. The challenges of identifying and working with passivity address the question, ‘can passivity be analyzed?’.


  1. Participants will obtain a review of the developmental challenges of late adolescence.
  2. Participants will gain knowledge of potential experiences, identifications, and early dynamics that can lay the ground work for masochism.
  3. Participants will gain awareness of how inhibition and compromises that lead to passivity can come alive in the transference and emerge as potential opportunities for change.

Difficulties in Working with Parents:
How to Know What You Don’t Know

Moderator: Joan Poll, MD

This presentation will focus on why a control case abruptly and surprisingly ended after 20 months of treatment. The parents in this case seemed invested and involved in their daughter’s treatment However, given the outcome, there were conscious and unconscious resistances and transferences to their child’s analyst that were interfering in their ability to fully engage in the treatment.


  1. Participants will learn how to recognize and treat parents’ ongoing and shifting transferences and feelings about their child’s analysis.
  2. Participants will learn how to deepen the work with parents in ways that do not threaten their defenses and the child’s treatment.
  3. Participants will learn how to balance the parent work on increasing their understanding of their child’s internal world and developmental struggles with a recognition of their own anxieties and issues and how they impact their relationship with their child.
