Who should go to therapy? When? How does it work? How do you know it’s helping? Real life experiences will be discussed.
How people manage these turbulent years without murder and mayhem - theory and actual experiences will be discussed.
The course will be four sessions during which we will read and discuss psychoanalytic writers on female development beginning with Helene Deutsch, Rosemary Balsam, and others. Participants will be encouraged to read the material and be prepared to discuss the readings as well as their own views and any cases that they feel relate to the subject.
This workshop will explore the immediate psychological impact of a pandemic. We will will also track connections to earlier developmental life stages when similar feelings of not having control, amongst other feelings, were experienced. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences.
This course will compare the history of classical psychoanalytic diagnosis with the modern psychoanalytic approach. Likewise, we will discuss theories of psychoanalytic psychopathology and schemes for diagnostic classification as it contrasts with the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-5). This class will examine which perspectives are most useful in providing guidelines for the treatment process; determine which diagnostic criteria are required for communication with insurance companies and other interested third parties; and which formulations foster the greatest clarity and understanding when communicating with the patient versus with colleagues.
Each class indicates which options are available.
