Revisting History, Concepts, and the Clinical Situation in Classical Psychoanalysis

Eight Session Program (12 Contact Hours)

Presenter: Barbara Stimmel, PhD
Dates: 8 Tuesdays, September 5 - October 24, 2017
Location: 1185 Park Avenue, NYC
Time: 6:30-8:00pm

The curriculum of a psychoanalytic institute, any institute, must focus on multiple aspects of our very complex and challenging profession so that it is impossible to study many important contexts of psychoanalysis in-depth.  This series aims to further and deepen the study of the Freudian project.

This program of study will do three things in an interrelated way: First, we will look at Freud as a man of his time and its science, and his culture as his and his colleague’s paradigm-shifting thought and work invaded the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Second, participants will read several key, early papers closely to see how they reflect the challenges psychoanalysis confronted from without, and within.  Third, we will apply the technique of micro-processing to current clinical material with an emphasis on some tried and true technical concepts, primarily free association within the transference, as well as patient/analyst interactions and enactments.

The hope is that looking in this varied and detailed manner will help participants become more comfortable with, sophisticated about, and appreciative of, what is still called classical psychoanalysis.
