Three’s a Crowd: Stella’s Pregnancy and the Arrival of an ‘Other’ in a Streetcar Named Desire

  • Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute 32841 Middlebelt Road Farmington Hills, MI, 48334 United States (map)

Course Description:

After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

1.      Discuss how this play demonstrates family dynamics around the arrival of a child.

2.      Explain common conflicts around triangulation.

The problems fathers have with the arrival of a new baby are common but often overlooked and underappreciated by mental health practitioners. Similar dynamics can also be seen in other kinds of family situations such as sibling rivalries.  This paper will help clinicians to work more effectively with such problems.
