    Our luncheon is generously sponsored by Recovery Road Medical Center.

    The wish to modify the body comes from the unconscious experiences of envy and emptiness before it is made into a conscious act. Cosmetic surgery and eating disorders are viewed acceptable in society which may interfere with the taxing effort to understand and conceivably resolve the unconscious subjective meanings of envy and emptiness that lead to body modification, starvation, bingeing and purging and binge eating. Unformulated experiences are absent of language and the result is that the experience stays in the body and the body speaks what the mind cannot digest.

    The process of psychodynamic psychotherapy provides the potential space for talking about anything that comes to mind and the clinician helps the patient find meaning and feeling in their words. Addressing the unconscious experiences of envy and emptiness with reflexive listening allows for thinking psychologically rather than concretely, which will result in new and useful information to broaden a patient’s awareness. This presentation will provide an in depth look at these ideas within the case material of a 25 year old patient who engages in eating disorder behavior and cosmetics surgery. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • Describe 2-3 psychodynamic origins of envy and emptiness. 
    • Describe 3 ways that envy and emptiness are correlated, as well as the wish to modify and control one's body image and appearance.
    • Apply the use of 2-3 psychodynamic and somatic concepts, as well as reflective listening in the therapy dyad when presented with patients who engage in eating disorder behaviors and body modification.
