Flaubert claimed mastery in matters of style in the French language as well as in the psychological sciences. Mastery in both areas is on clear display in the writing of Madame Bovary. The heroine presents as a new kind of personality in the history of the novel, namely as someone who depends greatly on sensory experience in order to maintain her emotional equilibrium. Dynamically, failures of memory and the resulting fragmentation of experience leave her with a precarious sense of self. For the heroine, there is little ability to link present experience to the past, and, therefore, no possibility of metaphoric or symbolic thinking; in other words, she is condemned to repeat. Using a psychoanalytic perspective, the reader encounters what patients present to psychotherapists: repetition compulsion, narcissism, trauma, and more.

Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Describe the impact of trauma on memory.
– Describe how stunted mourning affects the capacity to form attachments.

Open to NPAP members and candidates I no cost
non-members I $30.00

1.5 CE contact hours will be granted to participants with documented attendance and complete evaluation form. It is the responsibility of the participants seeking CE credits to comply with these requirements. Upon completion, a Certificate of Attendance will be emailed to all participants.
