|Grievance as a Container for the Negative
Maxine K. Anderson, M.D., FIPA
Founder and Training & Supervising Analyst, Northwestern Psychoanalytic Society, Seattle; Training & Supervising Analyst, Seattle Psychoanalytic Society & Institute; and Canadian Psychoanalytic Society; Full Member, British Psychoanalytical Society
Entrenched grievance provides a seeming protection from deep trauma and loss. But if unattended by the reverie function, it may become a hard-shelled rind into which pain, rage, and righteousness are poured, and concretized as Truths. Detailed illustrations of both the patient’s entrenchment and the analyst’s attempts to aid emergence are presented.
Case Presentation: Laurel Bass Wagner, Ph.D.

|The Music and The Dance of Therapeutic Action
Alexandra Harrison, M.D.
Training and Supervising Analyst, Adult and Child and Adolescent Supervisory Analyst, Boston Psychoanalytic Institute; Assistant Clinical Professor in Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School.
Psychodynamic play therapy uses a young child’s natural way of making sense of his inner world – imaginative play – to help him open up a set of rigid meanings about himself and those around him and create new, more flexible, and adaptive meanings that can allow him to move on in his psychological development. The usual way therapists communicate about therapy sessions is through the reconstruction of the narrative of a session from memory. The videotape of a play session provides a complementary perspective to this reconstructed information.The implicit, procedural second by second coordination of two partners occurs at the micro-level of communication, which is generally out of awareness. Video microanalysis is necessary to identify both patterns of coordination and moments of transformation in these patterns.
In this presentation, Dr. Harrison will use videotapes from play sessions of two preschool children to demonstrate how the story of the session and the music and the dance – the micro-process - of the session come together.
