From Freud to Ego Psychology (202A)
(formerly part of Psychoanalytic Models of the Mind Part 1)

Instructors: Don Rosenblitt, MD and TBA

Open to Distance Learners

From Freud to Ego Psychology is the first of a four-part series that provides an introduction to the major phases of development in psychoanalytic theory from its origins in the latter part of the 19th century to the present. This is an 8-session course that focuses on psychoanalytic theories originating in Freud, his contemporaries, and their successors.  The ego psychological model includes ego functions, conflict-free ego sphere, defenses, and the impact of both internal & environmental influences and/or conflicts on ego functioning.  This course is intended for clinicians at beginning through intermediate levels.

 Prerequisite: Students will need a basic exposure to and understanding of psychoanalytic theory and its application to the treatment of patients. Applicants can meet this requirement through previous coursework, training, or supervision (e.g., Thinking Psychoanalytically: The Basics; the PPSC Introductory Course; psychoanalytic coursework or supervision in graduate school/residency or post-graduation). Applicants who don't meet this requirement can register for the course with permission of the instructors.
