    F919 The technique of narrative analysis - $160
    September 25, October 9, October 23, November 6
    3:00p - 5:00p

    Is the narrative an effective method for psychoanalytic education? What purpose, personal experience and growth can attain relevant results? How can the narrative be organized? What objectives are developed when applying narrative methods, and what is being accomplished? Transmission of real life experience, basic values, behaviors and emotions in the narrative contributes to a body of knowledge. The use of the narrative relates to the transfer of learning, providing the derivation of objectives from studies and observation of contemporary life, indicating important and relevant areas containing importance. Trainees/students/ learners/researchers have an opportunity discuss observation and what is being learned? Cases and self-narrative will be presented and reviewed by the group. (Narrative Analysis)

    F119. Beyond joining: Expanding the range of interventions in modern psychoanalysis - $120
    September 26, October 3, October 10, October 17
    12:30p - 2:00p

    Modern psychoanalysts instruct their analysands to say everything, but analysands are limited in their ability to comply with this instruction both by unconscious resistances and also by not having the words they would need. Modern psychoanalytic interventions have largely been limited to questions and to joining what the analyst understands as the analysand’s resistances to saying everything. In this class, we will identify another type of resistance; that based on not being conscious of a feeling because the analysand does not have the words or metaphors to understand what is going on in their minds. We will explore interventions that are designed to give analysands tools to say things that would otherwise remain unarticulated.

Examples from students welcome.
