Guess Who’s Going to Dinner? Patient, Friend, and Would be Lovers

What happens when otherwise relatively secure boundaries between the outside world and the treatment room crumble, stirring bodily and affect states that threaten to undermine self-regulation, focus and authenticity? When the relational context expands and two becomes three or more, the frame can sag under the weight of new and uninvited objects; ethical and clinical questions abound. This presentation describes a sometimes desperate search for answers still to be discovered.


Steven Kuchuck, LCSW is the Editor-in-Chief of Psychoanalytic Perspectives, Associate Editor of  Routledge’s Relational Perspectives Book Series, Board Member, supervisor, faculty and Co-Director of Curriculum for the training program in adult psychoanalysis at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), and faculty/supervisor at the NIP National Training Program, the Stephen Mitchell Center for Relational Studies. He is also on the Board of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy where he co-chairs the Local (international) Chapters Committee for the 2017 APA Division annual conference.
