This course reviews contemporary psychoanalytic diagnosis as it has developed within an ego psychological and object relational perspective. The differences between psychoanalytic and psychiatric diagnosis are detailed both in terms of the differences in basic assumptions about psychopathology and the analytic clinician’s reliance on observations of the therapeutic interaction to supplement a question-and-answer approach.
