SEXUAL BOUNDARY VIOLATIONS IN ANALYTIC WORK: THREE PERSPECTIVES

panelists:
Stephen Behnke, Ph.D., Theodore Jacobs, M.D., Janet Wohlberg, M.S., A.B.D.

The risk of sexual and ethical boundary violations has been inherent in the psychoanalytic enterprise from its earliest days and has become the subject of much recent controversy and debate. Tonight’s panel will present three distinct perspectives on the topic.

Janet Wohlberg, a victim of such a violations, established a widely recognized victim-to-victim network, TELL, to help those in similar situations. Stephen Behnke is the Director of Ethics for the American Psychological Association, as well as a clinical psychologist and former fellow in the American Psychoanalytic Association. Theodore Jacobs, an analyst best known for his work on enactments and the unspoken aspects of the analytic relationship, has been involved in treating individuals on both sides of the boundary.

Audience participation and discussion will be encouraged. Please submit questions to Dr. Schwartz in advance of the meeting (41 Union Square West, Rm 402, NY, NY 10003 or waxwing@attglobal.net)
