Cases and Perspectives
This MCPP program is for clinicians who have completed The Dynamics of Inner Life, or who have some experience with psychoanalytic theory and practice. This 28-week course will delve into four major branches of Psychoanalysis:
Ego Psychology – Understand case material from the perspective of drives and defenses, and develop techniques to productively address maladaptive defenses
Object Relations – Explore how the internal world of self and object representations are at play in your work
Self Psychology – Learn how to address the “self” problems involved in self-esteem and self-worth that interfere with relationships and lead to self-defeating behaviors
Relational – Learn how here-and-now relationship moments with your patients can be the “engine of change” in your treatments
The course will use Case material provided by participants, along with readings and discussion, to deepen clinical understanding and technique.
