Dr. Charles Parks, is a Co-Chair of the Child/Adolescent Training Committee of the American Association for Psychoanalytic Education, and a Training and Supervising Analyst and Child and Adolescent Supervisor at the Washington Baltimore Institute for Psychoanalysis. He is an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and a member of the clinical faculty of the Georgetown University Department of Psychiatry. Additionally, Dr. Parks maintains a private practice in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and adults in both Chevy Chase, MD and Washington, D.C.

A young girl, struggling with rage, destructiveness, and envy, worked to acknowledge and understand overwhelming feelings so that she could resume emotional development.  Initially her concerns were expressed through aggressive, disruptive behaviors at home; emotional withdrawal and inhibition in school; and repeated insistence that her parents punish her or “make (her) dead.”   Analytic progress allowed a series of psychic transformations which increased her capacity to elaborate these concerns in fantasy and in play.  Examination of these transformations is used to discuss core questions in child analysis including the nature of therapeutic action in work with children, the meaning and role of insight in this work, and the multiple ways a child uses the relationship with the analyst to progress in the treatment.
