OCSB as Schizoid Compromise: Safety, Fantasy, and one foot in – one foot out – JUNE 10TH, 2018, 1:00PM-4:30PM


Schizoid issues (regulating degree of psychological closeness and distance) are often involved in men with Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior, particularly men who seek out more anonymous and/or virtual sexual experiences.

Many therapists are unfamiliar with the range and forms of presentation of schizoid problems, or of effective ways to work with these people.

This workshop will focus on effective analytically based interventions with this personality type, that can be essential to dealing with OCSB. The therapist’s ability to deal with often feeling unconnected, even dead, in working with schizoid clients is essential to effective change. Instruction in the Masterson technique of intervening will be our clinical focus .

At the end of this 3.5 hour didactic/experiential workshop, participants will be able to do the following:

1. To have an understanding of Schizoid psychopathology historically, theoretically, and clinically.

2. To have an understanding of the Schizoid Personality Disorder (SPD) in its forms of clinical presentation as they relate to OCSB and it treatment.

3. To understand how to allow clients a sufficient sense of SAFETY in the work so that they can risk a greater degree of connection with their therapist and others.

4. To have information about why therapists working with schizoid individuals may often feel a sense of alienation, so the therapist can better manage such feelings.
