Presented by the Psychoanalytic Association of WCSPP
Much has been written about the impact of the intergenerational transmission of trauma on attachment and mental health in general. Little of that understanding has extended to intimacy and sexuality in adulthood. This presentation will clarify this terrain including how to assess for and treat the effects of intergenerational trauma, both collective and individual, on adult sexual intimacy. Case examples will include family experiences of the Holocaust, slavery and racism.
Suzanne Iasenza, PhD is on the faculties of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy (ICP) in NYC, the Ackerman Institute for the Family, and the Adelphi University Derner Institute’s Postgraduate Program in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. She also teaches at the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. She maintains a private practice in psychotherapy and sex therapy. Her latest book, Transforming Sexual Narratives: A Relational Approach to Sex Therapy was published by Routledge (2020).
