Johanna Dobrich Seminar 

Working with Survivor Siblings in Psychoanalysis:
Ability and Disability in Clinical Process

Seminar Description:

Johanna Dobrich explores the impact of dissociative coping on the "survivor siblings" within multi-sibling families where one or more sibling has a serious disability that includes persistent medical and developmental features, the omission of both generative and trauma informed sibling experience within our psychoanalytic cannon and practice, and how the incorporation of these lateral dimensions of life may enhance healing, creativity, and clinical practice. A model for addressing experience which has been unspeakable / unknowable is articulated.

About the Speaker:

Johanna Dobrich, is an LCSW and psychoanalyst with a private practice specializing in the treatment of dissociative disorders. Johanna obtained her MA from Rutgers University in Political Science, her MSW from NYU and completed psychoanalytic training at ICP. Johanna is the winner of the 2023 Sandor Ferenczi Award from the International Association for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation for her book Working with Survivor Siblings in Psychoanalysis, which explores the developmental impact of growing up alongside a severely disabled and medically complex sibling. In addition to clinical practice, Johanna teaches courses and supervises therapists in psychoanalytic training at PPSC, NIP and ICP and is joining MIP as a consultant in their Trauma Training Program.
