Study of Recorded Analyses
Sherwood Waldron, Jr., M.D.
September 6, 2017 - October 18, 2017
8:40 - 10:00 PM
All first year courses.
Candidates must have at least one case in supervised psychoanalysis to be eligible for second year courses.
The course provides an opportunity for candidates to hear, while reading the transcripts, of senior analysts at work. A case from an analysis conducted many years ago illustrates the establishment of the analysis in the first four sessions. Then sessions from early, middle and late phases of a current analysis provide an opportunity to study a variety of points about technique with the analyst. The changes in the course of the analysis, both in the way the patient works in the analysis and in life will be evident. The multiple aspects of even one session in yet another current case will be examined as well.
No class held 9/20.
