Evolution of Psychoanalytic Technique, Part 1- From Ferenczi to Spotnitz
Saturdays, 9:00-10:30 a.m.
Instructor: Wally Fletcher, D Min, NCPsyA
12 Weeks- 18 CE’s
Although Freud was a prolific writer his specific writings on technique were limited to a few “technical papers” that opened the way for creative elaboration, debate and expansion. This course will focus on the evolution of psychoanalytic technique from early days to the beginnings of Modern Analysis. Particular attention will be placed upon the following key issues:
- The basic ‘set up’ and ground rules for effective psychoanalytic treatment
- Approaches to dealing with transference, countertransference and resistance
- The uses of interpretive, educative and interactional techniques in psychotherapy
- Attempts to broaden the range of human problems for which psychoanalysis can offer effective help; and the ways these attempts influenced psychoanalytic technique.
Modern Psychoanalytic Theory & Techniques-Advanced
Saturdays, 10:40 a.m. -12:10 p.m.
Instructor: William J. Lorman, JD, PhD, MSN, NCPsyA
12 Weeks- 18 CE’s
This course discusses theoretical, clinical and historical issues related to the modern psychoanalytic movement. We will study the context in which the present controversies exist in order to try and sort out how much of our thinking has been influenced by our culture and the politics of psychoanalysis itself. We explore the influence of ego psychology and object relations theory on contemporary thought along with considering how many of Freud’s original concepts (such as the unconscious, the id, the ego, transference, resistance, free association, and the oedipal complex) are still considered crucial. We will also focus more on technique and the role of the transference, the real relationship and intersubjectivity. We will finish the course with a summary and focus on the crucial differences between the Freudian position and other orientations (Kleinian, relational and self psychology).
