The Therapist-Analyst as Clinical Instrument: Processing Clinicianís Internal Experience

Four-week Course - Thursdays, June 9, 2011- June 30, 2011; 8:15-9:45 pm

Topics Include:

         Countertransference: Old and new perspectives. Objective countertransference as a clinical tool: How does it differ from subjective countertransference?

         What is projection and what is projective identification? How do we process projections and projective identification, and why?

         What developmental disruptions cause the dissociative phenomena that become projective identification as opposed to projection that is based on a core integrated self and repression?

         Why is the key role of the processing of projective identification not understood? What scares people about the concept of projective identification?

Clinical examples and processing of these phenomena will be discussed and role-played.
