Dreams of home: psychotherapy with formerly homeless adults

Dr. Deborah Luepnitz

The ache for home lives in all of us, writes the poet, Maya Angelou. Nonetheless, many millions of people around the world--including in the wealthiest nations--live without basic shelter. This presentation will describe I.F.A. (Insight For All)--a project that connects psychoanalytic therapists willing to work for free with formerly homeless women and men. Although psychoanalysis is often viewed as a treatment for the affluent only, there is a little-known history of free therapy that goes back to l9l9. It is abundantly clear that rich and poor alike suffer from unconscious conflicts, disturbing compulsions, and traumas of all kinds, and can benefit from speaking to a committed other who is trained to listen, to explore the past, and interpret dreams. Clinical case material will be offered, demonstrating the use of concepts from thinkers such as Donald Winnicott and Jacques Lacan.
