Why are so many adolescent boys and young men deeply alienated? This seminar will explore the psychological background of the question and address what happens when they show up in our practices.
This course will look at various forms of clinical presentation in boys and men when alienation is prominent. Combining clinical material from participants with theoretical considerations, we will try to address some of problematic aspects of alienating behaviors. These include, for example, self-destructive acts, addiction, avoidance, and social isolation.
There will be emphasis on male violence, its antecedents and relationship to cyberspace. This topic will consider the shadow side of the Internet, including the Darknet, 4chan and 8chan, & incendiary contents on YouTube and Twitter as evolving elements connected to the youth psyche. We’ll look at how explosive material and disturbing images fuel destructive fantasies and acting out among a subset of boys and young men.
