Joy Schaverien | The C.G. Jung Institute Copenhagen arranges a One Day Conference on ABANDONMENT With Kathrin Asper and Joy Schaverien
Abandonment - Early Deficits and Limitations After looking at the many causes of abandonment at different periods of the life cycle, Kathrin Asper focuses at abandonment in the early years of life in the mother child relationship. Deficits and limitations influence this relationship. All this influences the building of the personality and the growth of identity. Furthermore the low self esteem gives raise to different survival strategies and compensations, such as amongst others narcissistic, schizoid, over- adaptive. The lecture is underscored by case material and paintings done during therapy.

Presentation by Joy Schaverien:

Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma of the ‘Privileged’ child

In her book published in 2015 Professor Joy Schaverien identified a cluster of symptoms and behaviours, which she proposes be classified as ‘Boarding School Syndrome’. In Britain children of affluent families may be sent to boarding school at an early age. Whilst considered to be a privileged form of education, the effect of the sudden and irrevocable, loss of their primary attachments constitutes a significant trauma for many. In some cases bullying and sexual abuse follow, rendering new attachment figures unsafe. To adapt to the system, a defensive and protective encapsulation of the self may be acquired; the true identity of the person then remains hidden. This pattern may continue into adult life, distorting intimate relationships. This has personal and political consequences.
