Amy Joelson

Playing and Technology: Intersubjective Choreography In Child and Adolescent Treatment

Seminar Description:

Change in treatment is part of an intersubjective choreography between analyst and patient.
This presentation explores how a unique dance emerges as each partner attunes to the other, misattunes and tries to get it right. Each may be surprised to discover new relational moves. Engaging children and adolescents increasingly includes the presence of technology which also inspires new moves. Joelson considers how the therapeutic experience, coconstituted between analyst and patient, can be inescapably influenced by their technologies such as iPhones and Zoom. Such situations may disrupt the therapist's assumptions about treatment and challenge them to evolve their approach such that the technology can contribute to communication and facilitate play rather than thwart it.

Two examples will be presented in which technology was introduced.
The first is of a traumatised adolescent, before the pandemic, who sits on the therapy couch focused on her iPhone in front of her face. The second example is of a child who, during the pandemic, panicked when treatment was forced out of the playroom and into the Zoom room. Through these two challenging clinical situations, Joelson illustrates the process of change as informed by a nonlinear dynamic systems view of development.
