Finding Frankenstein: The Analyst’s Intersubjective Collision with Unsymbolized Thought and Unrepresented Mental States
This experience-near seminar focuses on the inevitable prospect of entering the unspeakable mental terrain of traumatized patients while managing the analytic task of staying alive and enlivened. Dr. Gupta provides an intersubjective, relational framework for understanding unrepresented mental states when thoughts are missing in action. She shows how the experience of disruption in the analyst’s mind is a “tell-tale” sign of an encounter with the patient’s dissociated self and unsymbolized object. In her paper presentation, she discusses an extended use of the analyst’s mind and provides clinical case examples.
Rose Gupta, PsyD, LCSW, is a psychoanalyst and consultant in San Francisco and a member of the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California. She teaches locally through Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology and presents her work internationally on unrepresented states, unsymbolized thought and trauma-based, unsymbolized objects from a relational, intersubjective perspective at IARPP, IPFEE, IPA, Journal of Applied Psychology, and APA (Div. 39). Her panel paper, “When the Mind does not Arrive..” was reviewed in IJP, 2015 and her recent paper, “Finding Frankenstein: An Intersubjective Encounter with Unrepresented States and a Trauma-based Nonsymbolic Object” was presented at the Sandor Ferenczi Conference in Florence, Italy, May, 2018 and in San Francisco, October, 2018 through NCSPP.
