Description:

This program will survey how theory affects psychotherapeutic technique and specifically how infant research has changed both theory and technique in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. This class will address what Claudia Gold’s neo-natal infant assessment and Edward Tronick’s “Still Face Experiments” have to tell us about how to treat patients.

 

 Learning Objectives:
  1. Participants will be able to describe how infant research has changed the nature of psychoanalytic theorizing about human development and psychotherapy.
  2. Participants will be able to differentiate one-person from two-person models of the mind.
  3. Participants will be able to demonstrate how differing models of the mind influence the techniques of psychotherapy.
