In consulting rooms, women's biological clocks are ticking. Sometimes it's the patient's, sometimes the patient's partner's, sometimes the analyst's. What happens when it is only the analyst who is seemingly able to hear the patient's clock ticking, or even winding down? And how do we work with women, and men, who tell us they don't want children, don't wish to explore the issue further, and leave us wondering if there's more to be discovered and understood? Analysts are often conflicted about influencing patients instead of helping them find their own way. If we open discussion around these topics, are we foreclosing the patient's process or opening a pathway for it? Compelling case presentation will illustrate these dilemmas.
