This pre-conference will concentrate particularly on the complex, often gender specific experiences people have in being envied or envying, hated and hating. Hatred and envy, one can see from clinical, theoretical and social experience, are often deeply co-created. Misogyny has surfaced in the newly visible but longstanding experiences of sexual exploitation.

Using Fanon, Laplanche, intersectionality, and feminist psychoanalytic theory, we will think together about how misogyny operates and how envy is managed/mismanaged by all subjects. We will locate this discussion in historical context and also address some of the current challenges of the #MeToo movement.  As we examine forces of hatred and envy, we will be mindful of how these forces intersect with matters of race, class, culture and sexuality.

At the conclusion of the conference, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe and summarize the effect and conditions of misogyny as it appears in broad social, interpersonal, and internal conscious and unconscious forms in individuals.
  2. Analyze the gender implications of misogyny and envy both across and within gender identifications.
  3. Assess and utilize the concepts of misogyny and envy in specific clinical situations, considering both transference and countertransference implications.

This conference is appropriate for mental health professionals at all levels of experience and offers 2 CEs.
