Theoretical and Clinical Perspectives on Therapist Boredom:
Deadness, Aliveness, and the Spaces in Between

Australian Eastern Daylight Savings (Sydney) Time
This presentation will explore traditional as well as much more contemporary thinking about the meaning of clinician boredom. I argue that boredom can of course indicate dissociated or otherwise inaccessible patient and/or therapist affect. But there may be something about the normative clinical encounter that engenders these states more often than we care to admit. The bored, sometimes deadened analyst’s resultant shame, guilt and other complex feelings will be explored via extensive theory and clinical material. Meanings and technique-based challenges and solutions will be discussed.
