Transforming Destructiveness:
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with the Difficult to Treat Patient
Instructors: Peter Perault, MD and Katherine Broadway, M.Div., LPC

Remote Learners Welcome


This 16-week course will focus on how to successfully help patients whose "under-structured" personality organization presents special challenges to the developmental goals of a psychoanalytic treatment.

Class discussion and reading:

  • We will look at various "languages" used to describe these patients in different psychoanalytic models of the mind, with readings on borderline personality disorder and attachment theory.
  • We will especially focus on the therapist stance, emphasized in relational psychoanalysis, which requires a particular way of listening that allows the patient-therapist dyad to make contact with parts of their own and each others' minds in useful ways.
  • The course instructors will encourage lively discourse, a stance of "not knowing," and ample opportunity for the presentation of case material.
