Personal Statement

I am interested in self-defeating behaviors and how people change. I have published books on these topics, as well as the self, the interface of psychoanalysis and the psychotherapies, and coping with death and endings. We are examining what is helpful in the psychotherapy of eating disorders, anxiety and depression, alcoholism, trauma, etc. A number of students are also presently looking at Facebook and other social media, examining personality characteristics that lead to postings and jealous reactions. My students and I have presented papers all over the world. We are currently expanding our research to include respondents from other parts of the world. I encourage students to pursue their own interests and hope to be of help in that process. I have a grant that can provide $1250 each year to a research student. Students interested should speak to me.

Teaching Specializations/Interests

Theories of Therapeutic Action, Creativity, Unconscious Processes, the Self, Self-Defeating Behaviors, Gender and Race

Research Interests

I am interested in what people with different sorts of problem find most helpful in psychotherapy--people who are victims of trauma, incluidng sexual trauma, people with eating disorders and substance abuse issues, those who self-harm, and those with depression, anxiety, etc. Psychotherapy Processes, including choice of a therapist and stopping psychotherapy.Self-Defeating Behaviors, including self-harm, obesity, eating disorders, addictions and compulsions
Dreams
Gender and Race

My general interests include self-defeating behavior, change processes, and the self. I have also looked at the expectation of unpleasant events and choosing to suffer, areas that are again of interest with terrorism becoming so much part of our consciousness. With degrees in both clinical and social psychology, I am interested in both social realities and intrapsychic fantasies.

A major research interest lies in the area of the change processes in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. I have been interested in what specific interventions lead most frequently to change and what type of interventions patients find most helpful and hurtful. This research takes us beyond the general relationship factor and into the specific controversies of schools of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. Specific interventions in supervision are also of interest.

Another interest lies in the area of sado-masochism. In a sense, all problems in living can be examined by looking at the ways in which people are hurtful to themselves and others. Following Jessica Benjamin’s theory of masochism in women as a response to the father’s failure in his recognition of the desires of his daughters, we have developed a scale of “Recognition of Desires” that differentiates masochistic persons from non-masochistic persons and therapy patients from non-therapy patients. Because early relationships with parents play such a large role in personality development, I am also very interested in attachment styles.
And, if students are interested in developing a theoretical dissertation dealing with such topics as psychoanalysis and literature or film, I am happy to help with such projects.
Students are currently examining social media and its effects, including jealousy and posting of content others might find inappropriate. With a previous PhD in social psychology, students interested in gender, race and sexual orientation have worked with me for research and therapy supervision.
