Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Case Conference (909)
Instructors: Molly Kiefer, MSW and Donna Stanley, MSW

This six-session course is designed to help each therapist to fine tune twice (or more) weekly psychotherapy cases by providing an in-depth examination of ongoing twice weekly cases.Together, we will examine  how a psychotherapy case transitions into a psychoanalytically oriented case. We will discuss awareness of resistance, transference, counter-transference, use of free association, etc. The classes will meet every other week beginning January 9, 2020

The class is open to those who are interested in deepening their own clinical work within a group participation setting. This setting will include deeper listening and understanding of one’s own work and the work of others.  We will follow two cases over the 12 weeks and make time for others to discuss their work. Each student should come prepared to discuss her/his own twice weekly case. Before class begins, each student will meet with one of the instructors to discuss which case they might focus on or, if they have no current intensive case, what they hope to learn from this experience. 

Prerequisite: This class is open to matriculated Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy students as well as clinicians who have a basic exposure to and understanding of psychoanalytic concepts. Non-matriculated students 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). Other students may take this class with permission of the instructors.
