New for Instructors, Supervisors, Candidates, Psychoanalytic Practitioners and anyone who wants a scholarly overview of psychoanalytic theorizing…

On-line Videorecorded Course:  What, Where is Psychoanalysis: Classic Concepts, New Meanings

This course is designed for instructors, supervisors, students, and psychoanalytic practitioners who want a solid foundation and overview of the history of theorizing and technique.  The course traces a trajectory from classical positivist, one-person conceptualizations to a relational, two-person, intersubjective engagement selecting basic concepts from both classical and contemporary perspectives.  In particular, the course examines epistemological underpinnings of each concept as psychoanalytic theorizing is transformed throughout its history.  Each topic is covered from an historical vantage point to establish a foundation of the concept as it was originally conceived.  Then these concepts are reformulated through a postmodern lens with a resultant discussion of the changes that ensued due to the transformations of theory and technique.  Readings have been selected that represent seminal moments in the history of psychoanalytic thinking, marking a turning point, an elaboration of the concept, or an alternative view in order to expand  your knowledge of the issues and debates in the history of the concept.  In many cases, the papers we will discuss are those currently being debated in the ongoing evolution of psychoanalytic theory and technique.
