As a result of attending this program, participants should be able to:
- Summarize the psychoanalytic understanding of perversion and its changes over the last hundred years: Freud's classical drive model and its vicissitudes, the object-relations model (Stoller, Socarides Khan, Ogden, and French theories of perversion), and the Kohutian Self-psychology model
- Explain the understanding of perversion and its treatment by regarding perversion formation as an “autotomous,” massive splitting defense in the service of psychic survival within violent and deeply traumatic early childhood situations
- Discuss the reliving of the early breakdown and deadness in the treatment experience with the analyst as described in this analysis of the severely fetishistic-masochistic patient
- Assess the patient’s longing to experience and feel, within the psychoanalytic treatment, a core capacity to love that has been subjected to annihilative destruction or hatred
Ofra Eshel is a faculty member, training and supervising analyst of the Israel Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, and member of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA); vice-president of the International Winnicott Association (IWA); founder and head of the postgraduate track "Independent Psychoanalysis: Radical Breakthroughs" at the advanced studies of the Program of Psychotherapy, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University.

“Ofra Eshel offers a radical change in the way we conceive of the analytic endeavor, a change that opens new possibilities for everyone... She discusses and clinically illustrates what it is to be there with the patient so thoroughly that a new subjective entity and depth of experiencing emerges...” --Thomas Ogden
