An Exploration of Disability within the Family System

with Johanna Dobrich LCSW
Sunday, Janauary 9th, 2022 – 11:00am-12:30pm EST

This workshop will take place virtually on Zoom.

1.5 CE credits available. 

Working with Survivor Siblings in Psychoanalysis: Ability and Disability in Clinical Process explores a previously neglected area in the field of psychoanalysis, addressing undertheorized concepts on siblings, disabilities, and psychic survivorship, and broadening our conceptualization of the enduring effects of lateral relations on human development.  What happens to a person’s sense of self both personally and professionally when they grow up alongside a severely disabled sibling? This presentation will explore the themes that emerged in the book through a series of qualitative interviews held between the author and a sample of psychoanalysts– all of whom grew up alongside a disabled sibling.
