The Society of Analytical Psychology

The Structure and Function of Part Objects

Speaker: Richard Rusbridger

A distinctive feature of Kleinian approaches in psychoanalysis is their interest, which developed from Melanie Klein’s work with children, in primitive states of mind. These frequently involve part object relating, in which a person relates, not to whole people, but to parts of the self and others.  I will talk about the structure and function of part object relating.

Babies begin life relating to parts of their mother or caretaker – a face, breast, arm, etc – rather than to a whole person. These physical parts are rapidly invested with psychological significance. Gradually a baby’s awareness widens – a development which leads over the first six months or so to an integration of the part objects towards making a whole self, relating to whole objects. But this earliest mode of relating remains available to be used when it is needed. How and when this happens, including in clinical work, is the subject of this talk.

Richard Rusbridger is a training analyst, a child analyst with the British Psychoanalytical Society and in private practice in London. He was a social worker in psychiatry and trained as a child psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic before training at the Institute of Psychoanalysis. He is an Honorary Reader at University College London, and Hon Sec of the Melanie Klein Trust. He has written papers on psychoanalytic theory, and on psychoanalysis and music, and has edited the collected papers of Edna O’Shaughnessy and (with Priscilla Roth) Elizabeth Spillius.

The B B Zeitlyn Psychotherapy Training Fund

Preserving a Psychoanalytic Attitude to Short-Term Psychotherapy

Speaker:  Margaret Rustin

This talk arises from both a long standing commitment to finding ways to provide psychoanalytically based interventions in NHS clinics of varying duration, and from my involvement in the large RCT on treatment for Adolescent Depression, the IMPACT study, whose findings have been published. I co-wrote the treatment manual and supervised a number of the research cases. I describe in detail a time-limited case with a young adolescent and discuss the pressures one has to deal with in such a time frame. I argue for the centrality of a focus on transference/countertransference dynamics and discuss questions of technique.

Margaret Rustin is a Tavistock trained Child and Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapist where she was Head of Child Psychotherapy from 1985 to 2007. She was responsible for the substantial expansion and university accreditation of Child Psychotherapy and of other professional training programmes in community mental health, and for the development of Child Psychotherapy from its original starting-point in London, in centres both elsewhere in Great Britain, and in other nations. Following retirement from her full-time post in 2009 Margaret Rustin continues to be engaged in teaching, supervisory and research work at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, and works in private practice as a child and adult psychotherapist. Her latest publications include: Reading Klein (with Michael Rustin) 2016. London: Routledge and New Library of Psychoanalysis of Institute of Psychoanalysis, and Short-term Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy for Adolescents with Depression (2016) with Simon Cregeen, Carol Hughes, Nick Midgley and Maria Rhode. London: Karnac.
