    Course Description:

    This clinically-based course will begin with an exploration of the evolution of Relational Theory within psychoanalysis.  Particular emphasis will be given to the influence of the infant research of the 1970’s and 80’s, the emergence of a new “psychoanalytic baby,” and post-modernism.

    In this course, we will elucidate the clinical implications of Relational Theory and explore our clinical assumptions.  We will consider fundamental theoretical and clinical issues and questions, including the following:


    - Reconceptualizing transference and counter-transference
    - Where is the “therapeutic action”?
    - What about technique(s) and therapeutic stances?
    - Developmental Theory and the Developmental “Tilt”
    - Dissociation, Multiplicity, and Trauma
    - Culture, Race, Gender, Sexuality, and the “Normative Unconscious” (Layton)

    Attention will also be devoted to other applications of Relational Theory that are of particular interest to course participants.  A list of (optional) related readings will be provided.
