Maternal Envy as Legacy: Search for the Unknown Lost Maternal Object

7-9pm (CST): ZOOM Presentation and discussion

About the presentation: There has been a widening interest within psychoanalysis to understand the appearance and impact of intergenerational transmissions of trauma and the dissociative states of mind that cross from parents to their children.  Clinical material will be discussed showing how an early death of a mother ended uphaunting the lives of many generationsof mothers and daughters, refusing transformation. Considerations of attachment rupture, trauma, toxic envy, deadly and deadening aggression and shame will be discussed as part of transgenerational transmission phenomenon and how they are worked on in the analytic work. Envious attacks, while painful to tolerate, nonetheless need to be worked on within the analytic relationship so as to transform toxic transmissions from the past. 

Jill Salberg, PhD., ABPP is consultant/supervisor at the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis where she has taught Termination and will be teaching a class on Trans-generational Transmissions, is faculty/supervisor at the Stephen Mitchell Center for Relational Studies, Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and member of IPTAR.
