Friday, April 26, 2013, 9:30am – 12:30pm:
9:30-11:30am: presentation by Richard Waugaman, MD
11:30am-12:30pm: discussion moderated by Elizabeth Rankin, LiCSW
This seminar will examine self states in normality, pathology, and creativity. Bromberg’s important work has familiarized many of us with the concept of multiple self states. Dr. Waugaman will discuss the way that various ego states manifest in all of us. We have ego states that stay “awake” while “we” sleep, and our dreams constitute the thoughts of those ego states. While some creative artists may have DID, many do not, but seem to have unusual access to ego states that are unavailable to most people. Extending his previous work in DID, Dr. Waugaman will explore these self/ego states.
Presenter: Richard M. Waugaman, M.D. is Training and Supervising Analyst, Emeritus at the Washington Psychoanalytic Institute; Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University; Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at USUHS; and Reader at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
