Presenter: Darlene Bregman Ehrenberg, PhD, ABPP
Discussion Moderator: Ona Lindquist, LCSW

How can we work constructively with individuals who cannot bear the vulnerability of desiring, and who, as they begin to “care” or to “love” find their feelings escalating to proportions that feel unbearable and unmanageable and who, when they “care” and “love” feel so desperate and so vulnerable that they behave in ways that seem to be anything but “caring” or “loving.” Rather, they become demanding, possessive, tyrannical, and if they feel hurt or frustrated often become consumed with uncontrollable rage. Detailed clinical process of analytic work with such patients will be presented.
