Relational Freedom: Emergent Properties of the Interpersonal Field
Donnel B. Stern, Ph.D.
Neither the therapist nor the patient should be considered alone; all clinical events, including all the thoughts and feelings created, moment to moment, by the two participants, involve them both. We will discuss the identification, in the formz of dissociated enactments, of frozen or calcified parts of the field, and the kind of clinical process that holds the potential to thaw the field and breach the enactments.  These ideas will be illustrated with clinical material, offered by the instructor and perhaps by course participants.
