    A Twin's Dialectic:  Being Noticed or Being Known

    Dr. Joan A. Friedman


    Focus of the presentation:  A twinship is like a marriage without the freedom to choose one’s partner.  Biological destiny determines the dyadic connection.  For many twin pairs, the course of their emotional life is dictated by this singular event.  Contrary to popular opinion, not all twins are soulmates, telepathic communicators, or best friends.  Twins have a unique developmental trajectory which deserves examination so that optimal treatment goals are implemented.

    Presentation Summary:

    An in-depth look into the challenges of growing up as a twin.  Societal and cultural perceptions about twin relationships rarely focus on the troublesome emotional issues that twins confront.  Many twin pairs are ill-equipped to function as a singleton after having been raised in a twin bubble.  The presentation will include brief historical overview of attachment literature as it pertains to twin development; an outline of the most challenging parenting dilemmas and corrective interventions; summary of particular developmental hurdles that twins face as they grow into young adulthood and beyond; recognition of the particular ways in which treating a twin in therapy differs from a singleton patient.


    Four (4) learning objectives:

    1. Describe three characteristics unique to twin relationships
    2. Identify distinct childhood developmental differences that impact twin maturity
    3. Define three goals for the patient to help manage the twin connection
    4. Assess treatment strategies and interventions that resonate with twin patients

    Bio of presenter:

    Dr. Joan A. Friedman is a gifted psychoanalytically trained psychotherapist who has devoted many years of her professional career to educating twins and their families about twins’ emotional needs. Having worked through her own twinship challenges and parented her fraternal twin sons, she is a definitive expert on twin development.

    She is the author of Emotionally Healthy Twins: A New Philosophy for Parenting Two Unique Children and The Same but Different: How Twins Can Live, Love, and Learn to Be Individuals. Her latest book Twins in Session: Case Histories in Treating Twinship Issues will be published in June 2018.  It is a book written for psychotherapists and educators who require specialized knowledge and insight about twin psychology in order to be effective professionals. Dr. Friedman’s work focuses on issues that adult twins confront as they adjust to life as singletons after having been raised as twins.
