*E133. Freud’s Classic Cases

Focusing on Freud’s most famous cases—Anna O., Dora, Little Hans, the Rat Man, Dr. Shreber, and the Wolf Man—this course traces Freud’s growing of the mechanism of symptom formation; the dynamics of transference and resistance; and the ubiquity of countertransference reactions. This class highlights how astute clinical observation enabled Freud to develop major psychoanalytic hypotheses and an understanding of the conceptualization of hysteria, phobia, obsession, and paranoid schizophrenia; the techniques Freud developed to treat these cases and the transference-countertransference constellation manifesting in each case.

This course explores the Modern Psychoanalytic contribution to intervention strategy in the treatment of preoedipal patients.

It explores Freud’s hypotheses about the function of sexuality in normal and pathological development; the psychological meaning of symptoms; the mechanisms of dream formation and interpretation; and the shift from the topographical to the structural model of the mind.

E134. Dissociation/Conflict Theory, Attachment and Psychosis

This class focuses on the term dissociation where we observe impulsiveness, instability in relationships, identity confusion, intense anger, feelings of emptiness, difficulty being alone, self-destructive behaviors. These factors may reflect a combination of vulnerabilities/weaknesses and especially traumatic early childhood experiences that culminated in a disorganized attachment style. In addition, aspects of psychosis will be reviewed to establish how it is related to dissociative processes and examine the difference. Case material will be presented to illustrate the range of behaviors, cognitions, symbolic expressions, etc.
