For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
In Psychoanalytic Therapy, Dr. Nancy McWilliams demonstrates an integrative psychoanalytic approach characterized by the effort to create an egalitarian, here-and-now relationship in which therapist and client may work collaboratively on the client's problems. Her therapeutic process is organic: Instead of following a set method, she derives her style of working from psychoanalytic ideas applicable to the particular client and consistent with her own personality.
In this session, Dr. McWilliams interviews a woman in her mid-30s who is in an apparently abusive, longstanding relationship with a significantly older man. McWilliams listens to the client's experience and then helps her cope with her fear of separation.
