7:00 - 8:25 PM
Candidates must have at least one case in supervised psychoanalysis to be eligible to take second year courses.
The 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 #105 and #106, 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, as well as problems of the initial phase of analysis.
No class held 10/9, 12/25, 1/1, 1/15. 2/19.
