In this dialogue seminar, New York City-based Child and Adult Psychoanalyst Christopher Bonovitz, Psy.D. will review the contributions of Stephen Mitchell, Anne Alvarez and Hans Loewald in exploring the idea that development continues through the lifespan. The connectedness between the past, present and future will be featured as a central influence in facilitating development through time and instilling a sense of continuity. Clinical vignettes of a child and adult patient will be presented to illustrate the relationship between temporal unity/fragmentation with regards to negotiating developmental hurdles that we cannot necessarily trace back to early life.
