The Talk

Dr Jurist will present a psychoanalytically-informed perspective on emotion regulation, with a focus on assessing and helping patients utilize their emotions more effectively.  He will introduce the idea of “mentalized affectivity,” a form of emotion regulation that is mediated by autobiographical memory and that relies on the capacity to mentalize.

Dr Jurist will discuss a research scale his lab has created, the Mentalized Affecitvity Scale (MAS), which robustly delineates elements such as identifying, modulating, and expressing emotions, using case examples to illustrate how to apply the MAS as a clinical tool.
