In preparation for beginning the first analytic case, students will read and discuss some of the literature on indications and assessment of analyzability. Analytic attitude, the analytic situation, and analytic listening will also be discussed along with ideas about transference. During the course each student will meet individually with preceptors to discuss cases (either from the Treatment Center or private) which will then be presented for discussion in class. Techniques of consultation, diagnostic evaluation, and conversion from psychotherapy to psychoanalysis will also be discussed.
