Psychological Development Across the Life Cycle Part 1B (206)
Infancy to Latency 

August 27, 2019 - October 22, 2019, 7:10 pm - 8:40 pm
Instructors:  John Tisdale, D.Min., LPC and TBA 

Open to Distance Learners

There are developmental challenges to be mastered throughout the life cycle from infancy through old age, as each component builds upon what has gone before and attempts to integrate new capacities into the emerging personality. This course will explore developmental tasks and challenges from a psychoanalytic perspective and explore some of the issues resulting when children turn to pathological adaptations.

 Part IA, 8 sessions in the fall, will focus on the establishment of psychic structures.  We will examine fundamental attachments in infancy to emerging experiences of separation, autonomy, and attempts at mastery into latency. Psychic structures develop within the crucible of profound caregiving experiences.  We will pay close attention to the significance of these experiences in shaping or distorting the structures we are studying.  Alternatives to typical developmental pathways and the manifestations of distortions in various developmental lines going forward will also be a point of specific interest in this course. We encourage lively discussion of readings, sharing of clinical material, and personal experiences.  Students will be asked to carry one of their own patients in mind creating ideas about their particular development as they study the material.  Students are required to take Part 1A and 1B in succession.

 Psychological Development Across the Life Cycle Part 1B (206)
Latency to Pre-adolescence

October 29, 2019 - December 10, 2019, 5:30 pm - 7 pm (note time change)
Instructors: Nancy Livingston, MD and TBA

Part IB   will continue to build on these developmental concepts. We will explore the developmental tasks beginning at latency and continuing through preadolescence.  Alternatives to a typical developmental path and the results of distortions in various developmental lines going forward are significant aspects of the course. We encourage lively discussion of readings, clinical material, and personal experiences.

Part 2, in the spring of 2020, will be a 16 week course that will continue the study beginning with adolescence through the stages of adulthood to the developmental concerns of the end of life. Part 2 will be open to those who competed Part I A and B.
