Master/Slave: Abuse of Power in the Analytic Relationship
May 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmPrepaid Cost: $45 – $60
Presented by Renee M. Cunningham, M.F.T.
Utilizing case material, we will examine the potential for abuse of power in the context of the analytic relationship, and how this can replicate aspects of the archetypal master/slave relationship. Drawing from the principles of the eightfold path of nonviolence, we will examine some of the ways in which these principles can be applied to clinical practice.
- Give two clinical examples of how the abuse of power by the analyst can occur in the clinical setting
- Drawing from the principles of non-violence, give two examples of how this perspective can be applied to the therapeutic relationship.
- Describe what is meant by an emotional abuse of power within the analytic setting based on the paradigm of sadomasochism
