Dr. Galit Atlas will explore the relation between sexuality and attachment, both as separate and related phenomenon. The two clinical cases presented will be used to address difficulties around the modulation of excitement, as well as patterns of distress and regulation that are observed in current infant research. She will focus on the developmental trajectory of sexuality, including classic themes of overstimulation, seduction and betrayal in the early relationship to the mother. Particular attention will be given to the details of clinical work with overtly sexual material and with the analyst’s own sexual subjectivity.
