EP95 WS09 - Disorders of the Self: Differential Diagnosis and Treatment Strategies



Workshop 09 from the Evolution of Psychotherapy 1995 - Disorders of the Self: Differential Diagnosis and Treatment Strategies

Featuring James Masterson, MD

 

The development of the capacities of the healthy real self is described along with the impairments in these capacities that ensue in the Disorders of the Self. A diagnostic system based on the Disorders of the Self is presented, its conceptual basis is explained, and it is compared with DSM IV. A central triadic psychodynamic theme of these disorders, i.e., self-activation leads to depression which leads to defense, is described.

 

Educational Objectives:

  1. To diagnose the personality disorders as Disorders of the Self and to use the intrapsychic structure to differentiate between the disorders and to choose the appropriate therapeutic intervention.
  2. To identify the central psychodynamic triadic theme of the Disorders of the Self, i.e., self-activation leads to anxiety and depression which leads to defense.
