Kitty Schmidt Loew-Beer: Who am I? The Difficulty in Working with Borderline Patients
November 10th, 2018, Czech Psychoanalytical Society, Prague

The Czech Psychoanalytical Society invites all psychologists, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, students and candidates to a workshop with Viennese psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Kitty Schmidt Löw-Beer, who will present her interactive model for working with borderline patients using the concept of projective identification. The seemingly insolvable difficulties that arise in this work are discussed, including problems of technique, transference and counter- transference, envy, and feeling hurt. Working in the transference- countertransference relationship in the “here and now” has often proved to be more helpful than interpreting unconscious material from the past. Two case illustrations will serve to think about ways in which such patients can be analysed and how we can attempt to achieve a lasting change in their personality structure.
