Songs in the countertransference or "gilding the philosophic pill".
SONGS IN THE COUNTERTRANSFERENCE OR "GILDING THE PHILOSOPHIC PILL". Am J Psychoanal. 2017 May 29;: Authors: Peterson CA Abstract Songs that interrupt the psychoanalytic psychotherapist's countertransference reverie are invariably relevant and potentially useful. Like any other countertransference "presence," songs accompanying the narrative may contribute to understanding both patient and analytic process. Taking their intrusive, fecund, pesky presence one step further, song lyrics may be used as metaphor-saturated interventions, helping reach the well-defended patient. Five brief vignettes illustrate the process. Because we must learn to tolerate ordinary unhappiness, Blues music, a carrier of preconscious mythic themes (love and work), may prove especially useful, helping the patient indirectly embrace everyday wisdom, endure hard times, universalize misery, and see ourselves in the roomy mirror of metaphor.

It considers LGBT elder abuse in terms of polyvictimisation, intersectionality and the abuse of power. Th...
Authors: Lhermite A, Munoz Sastre MT, Sorum PC, Mullet E Abstract The views of laypeople and professionals (nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, and physicians) on the capacity to make informed decisions of elderly people with depression or dementia were examined. Participants were presented with vignettes created by varying the levels of three factors: (a) the type of decision (e.g., agreeing to surgery), (b) the health problem (e.g., slight depression), and (c) the availability of social support. Through cluster analysis, four different positions were found. Seventeen percent of the participants consid...
