    Course Title:  Relational Theory: Clinical Implications and Misunderstandings (12 CE credits)

    Instructor:  Steven Vogelstein, MA, LCSW

    Meeting dates (2020):  April 15, 22, 29; May 6, 13, 20

    Meeting time:  Wednesdays, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

    Location:  540 Frontage Road, Northfield, IL

    Course Description:

    We will begin by exploring the development and evolution of Relational Theory within psychoanalysis, including consideration of infant research in the 1970’s and 1980’s, of the emergence of a new “psychoanalytic baby,” and of post-modernism.  The optimal use of readings will be discussed in our first meeting.

    This course will focus on the clinical implications of Relational Theory and our associated clinical assumptions.  Key areas we will consider include the following:

    Reconceptualizing Transference and Counter-transference

    Where is the Therapeutic Action?

    What about Therapeutic Technique and Therapeutic Stances?

    Developmental Theory and the Developmental “Tilt”

    DIssociation, Multiplicity, and Trauma
