Case Abstract by Dr. Joye Weisel-Barth
Difficulties in Empathic Reach in the Case of Angie
The case depicts a therapeutic relationship which explores empathy, its uses and its functions and its limitations.
The case describes my fifteen year therapeutic relationship with “Angie,” a patient vastly different from me in many ways. Having previously experienced the relationship as successful, in the context of the current LGBTQ movement and the Black Lives Matter protests, I examine the concept of empathy and its limitations as applies to my work with Angie. Although our similarities and ease of empathic attunement marked our relationship for many years, my awareness of our differences in race and sexuality ultimately and productively challenged my notions of the ways in which empathy serves the clinical process.
Learning Objectives: The conference is organized to facilitate maximum opportunity for questions, comments and dialogue between the audience and the presenters, allowing clinicians to engage in an extensive variety of topics relevant to the field of Self Psychology. At the conclusion of this conference, the participant will be able to:
Describe two ways in which empathy serves the clinical process.
Give one example demonstrating the limitations of an empathic stance when working with patients.
Explain the importance of appreciating the weight of culture as well as early family relationships in cultivating an empathic understanding of our patients’ experience.
This conference is intended for psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and clinical professional counselors at all levels of experience.
