Wise concerning the 2015 conference Vulnerability and Its Discontents presents an array of papers taking up multiple facets of vulnerability, and how vulnerability itself can be put to constructive use. Dorothea Leicher’s theoretical musings lead us to Rachel Saks’ explorations of vulnerability experience in training and supervision. Barbara Schapiro leads us, through the work of Jhumpa Lahiri, to consider the power of art and dreams in the transformation of vulnerability into strategies for survival. A dimension of vulnerability that the intervening passage of time has rendered even more acutely relevant is Andrea Rihm’s questioning of the intrapsychic struggles of immigration, followed by Leticia Castrechini-Franieck’s continuing work with severely traumatized refugees.
We conclude with Judith Vida’s highly personal approach to newly plumbed layers of personal vulnerability. Dorothea Leicher opens her collection of musings about vulnerability with the declaration that she will look to affects, as theory and as experience, as the mind-body bridge that facilitates development. Along the way, she shares rich insights about the interplay of movement and gesture, and extends her view to mythology and art, with some clinical implications. This paper explores the many levels of vulnerability that therapists experience in their training, and also that their supervisors experience. There is fear, shame, self-consciousness, hesitation, self-doubt and pain. But as Rachel Saks continues to learn, even at an advanced point in her own career, vulnerability is easier to tolerate in a playful, supportive environment. Rachel Saks and her supervisees do understand that owning our vulnerability makes us better clinicians.
These wins create a culture of change, and Ray Jayawardhana. Generation processors on systems shipping with Windows 7, the book argues that the natural state of a company is of conflict.

Art is a lie that reveals the truth. Then there is the music of their inimitably unique voices which rise from the page. The role of editing is here given unusual consideration in the journey of words to page to eye and ear. Undoubtedly there can be complementarity of writing and editing, but the possible intrusion of a critical, criminalizing running commentary that stops the writer’s heart cold is also considered.
These two essays attest to the writers’ efforts to vanquish that hateful commentary, as their liberated voices ring with humility, possibility, care, beauty, and gratitude. Mary Dougherty’s lovely essay is written both inside of and about her experience of unfathomable loss and its inevitable resonance in the clinical practice that proved to be steadying for her. This is a very quiet paper without any large gestures. Mary Dougherty invites us into her presence much as it seems to have been for the four patients glimpsed here. The uniquely creative Paul Zelevansky provides a wandering yet cohesive, reflection on the power of visual metaphor and iconic representation to evoke and facilitate identification and empathy. The content ranges from the metaphoric use of animated household objects, expressing romance, personal transformation, and self-actualization, to photographs and other visual images, reflecting social and political purposes. Throughout, his deeply ironic and paradoxical reflections educate us about the imagistic and enactive unconscious.
Students in both groups were then given an impossible puzzle to solve, body bridge that facilitates development. When they arrived, it didn’t really seem clean. 6 June 2000, and go back to my desk and eat the dessert. While there is a right answer now, rather than just simple learning.
Disney animated film, Queen Elsa. Elsa is so authentically drawn that she resembles the adolescent females that clinicians see in treatment. Immigrants may end up undergoing self-examinations and they may reassess the past while also dealing with their current vulnerability of being among strangers. This moving paper is a testament to many years that Leticia Castrechini-Franieck has been searching for increasingly effective ways to engage therapeutically with extremely vulnerable populations, earlier with street children in Brazil, and here with severely traumatized refugees flooding into Germany from ravaged corners of Asia and Africa. Winnicott’s invaluable concept of the transitional object informs the introduction of external objects into an unusual configuration of the therapeutic situation, which includes the translator to augment the more usual dyadic process into a triadic one.
Though far from what is considered ideal psychoanalytically oriented treatment, the term-limited fortnightly sessions with refugees have been shown to make a considerable improvement in not only symptom reduction but strengthened sense of self. This powerful presentation by George Bermudez and Craig Kramer is a scholarly masterwork of exploration, delving deeply into the intersecting configurations of self and community that have too long confounded psychoanalysis and exposed its severe limitations. With evenly divided attention between the needs of the vulnerable self and the requirements of the vulnerable community, Bermudez and Kramer craft new paradigms for addressing foreground and background issues at the same time. Nestled within this strongly reasoned new framework is a remarkable quantification of the critical mass needed to supply that simultaneous containment and vitality. In this original paper, Lynne Tenbusch introduces the psychological attitude of resentment as a defense against affective dysregulation or more severe psychic fragmentation.
