7:00 - 8:20 PM
This seminar will introduce students to clinical psychoanalytic work by means of ongoing process notes from a beginning case, presented weekly. Based on knowledge gained in courses #105A and #105B, and on their own clinical experience, students will have the opportunity to actively discuss the clinical situation as it unfolds. Topics will include modes of analytic listening, the formulation and timing of analytic interventions, problems of the initial phase of analysis, as well as practice building.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. describe the relevance of the tripartite model of teaching to the practice of psychoanalysis.
2. delineate the multiple ways of listening to clinical material through discussion of their clinical cases, recognizing that many of their reactions are not unique, but shared.
3. differentiate between the practicalities of practice and the differentiation of countertransference from the expected response to clinical material.
4. outline the dangers of reductionism through overemphasis on clinical theory.
5. examine practicalities of private practice, such as fee setting, consistent time maintenance, and practice building.
6. critically and thoughtfully examine approach to the DSM framework to fully appreciate their patients complicated and multidimensional presentations.
Each student's participation in class discussion and his or her demonstration of understanding of the course objectives and reading material is assessed in a written evaluation by the instructor(s).
