Upcoming PsyD Colloquium Events for 2013
"The rat, the therapist, and the Ratatouille; Mutual healing and some cultural considerations in therapy with a woman with psychosis"
This presentation will highlight how this older, Chinese-American female patient with chronic psychosis brilliantly used the film, Ratatouille, to encapsulate Harold Searles' idea, "Patient as Therapist", to describe the intricate mutually helping relationship between this therapist and herself, through which the patient's condition gradually improved as this younger, Chinese therapist accepted her prescription of "hundreds and thousands of PhD's" and became more playful and effective in this psychoanalytically-informed therapy. The use of culture as a vehicle in this mutually helping relationship will also be compared with the recent DSM-V Cultural Formulation Interview research that this presenter was recently involved.
